Holidays can be some of most infrequent but eagerly anticipated, planned for and enjoyable life experiences it is possible to have. They can be dreams come true, the perfect synthesis of months of blissful fantasy and research, a reward, a prize, a necessity or even a honeymoon. How truly horrible it therefore is when the long awaited adventure is irreparably married by an accident, illness or other misfortune for which the victim is not to blame.
The pain and stress, trauma and abiding disappointment of a holiday ruined is not easily dealt with at the time, but the circumstances surrounding the injury or illness may entitle the victim to put in a claim for holiday compensation. Our personal injury solicitors bring a wealth of specialist knowledge and expertise to holiday compensation claims, and despite being immensely hardworking, occasionally take holidays themselves and so are, crucially, able to approach clients and their adverse holiday experiences from a very sympathetic and understanding viewpoint. Our solicitors will be able to gather and assess the facts and advise you if you have grounds for making a holiday claim for compensation. If the grounds exist they will then argue your claim to attain the fairest compensation achievable.
Types of holiday compensation claim
Holiday injuries and illnesses can arise from a variety circumstances, the most common of which are accidents in the course of travel, be it on land, on the seas or in the air, sporting accidents, for instance whilst skiing or waterskiing, trips, slips and fall in hotels and other accommodation and illnesses linked to unhygienic conditions and contaminated food and drink.
Holiday compensation – what you can claim for
In addition to being able to claim for pain and suffering caused by the personal injury, the victim might also be able to claim for financial loss to date, any future financial loss anticipated, plus the loss of the holiday experience and enjoyment. Such a claim can be complicated especially when there might be a single holiday property or business owner to deal with rather than a large travel or holiday organisation and in such circumstances an experienced solicitor can help ensure that a client’s ordeal doesn’t extend beyond the trauma of the holiday injury or illness into an unfamiliar world of legal procedure.
