Holiday Accident Claims Guide
If you have an accident whilst you are on holiday you may be able to make a claim for compensation. There is perhaps nothing worse than suffering an accident on what is supposed to be a peaceful and relaxing break. The most common accidents are those occurring when swimming or diving, accidents caused by playing sports and road traffic accidents. If you suffer an accident abroad whilst on holiday it is vital that you seek specialist legal advice when you return to the UK in order to make your claim. If you need to make a claim, there are some things that you can do to make it successful and as stress-free as possible.
The first thing that you need to do is report the accident. You can report it directly to your holiday representative, but you can also report it to the hotel that you are staying at, particularly if the accident occurred on their property. In the case of a road accident you should also report it to the local police. In fact it is safe to say that you should report it to as many officials as you possibly can. Your solicitor can then contact these agencies later to verify the details of the accident. You should also take the details of all the people to whom you report the accident in order to make contacting them easier at a later date.
You should also keep a personal account of what happened. Write a description of the events in your own words and in as much detail as you can. If you are on holiday then it is likely that you will have a camera with you. It is advisable to take photographs of the scene of the accident, as these can be used at a later date to back up your claim. You should also seek medical attention as this will further highlight the severity of your accident and provide another avenue of official confirmation.
Finally you should seek legal representation when you return to the UK as soon as you can. Delays can sometimes hinder the claim process and cast doubt on the severity of the claim. Representation can be found online and there numerous companies dealing with holiday compensation claims.
It is vital that you seek out a specialist solicitor who has dealt with holiday compensation claims in the past. No only will they be able to take you through the claim process step by step, but they will also be aware of the intricacies of such a claim. Many specialists offer legal assistance on a 'no win, no fee' basis, meaning that it won't cost you a penny to make a claim. The advice and assistance offered is often crucial. Your solicitor will be able to collect and collate all of the information that you have gathered and back up your claim. They will be able to contact everyone involved and build a strong case for your compensation. If you have an accident abroad through no fault of your own, then there is no reason why your claim shouldn't be successful. With a little preparation and the knowledge of how to react should your holiday be blighted by an accident, you can be sure of a positive outcome.
