Holiday Accident and Illness Claims

If you’ve been injured in an accident or suffered an illness whilst on holiday abroad due to negligence, you may able to pursue a personal injury claim.

Am I eligible to pursue a holiday compensation claim?

If the incident was caused by the provider of a service under a package holiday, then under the Package Holiday Regulations, a claim could be pursued in England and Wales. For example, you could have suffered food poisoning at an all inclusive resort or slipped on liquid spilt onto the floor at a hotel.

Compensation claims can still sometimes be pursued in other circumstances against those responsible for the incident, such as another driver’s insurers in Road Traffic Accidents, or a person’s employer if they are injured whilst working abroad.

What compensation can I claim for?

Such claims are often complex, usually requiring expert evidence and often with a shorter time period to pursue a claim than an accident taking place in England and Wales.
