We all need a holiday – but what happens if you suffer illness or injury whilst abroad?
Thousands of British travellers are injured every year. If you have suffered an injury or illness while on a break – whether it was a package holiday abroad, or somewhere closer to home – you may be able to make a holiday injury claim.
You may be forced to cancel the rest of your trip and the consequences of your injury could be very serious. Whatever the circumstances, an accident or illness on your holiday will probably cost money, even if you have insurance, and add undue stress, and possibly ruin the entire trip.
On return from your holiday you may find you cannot work or carry out everyday tasks by yourself, and, in some cases, that you may even require ongoing medical care.
The most important thing to do is have your injuries checked by a doctor. If you are abroad, arrange a local medical check-up and see your usual GP on your return home. You should also contact a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as possible.
We can provide you with the legal advice you need to help you receive the compensation you deserve. We’ll advise you on the best way to fund your claim, including whether it could be covered by any existing holiday insurance. One of our personal injury solicitors may also be able to help you on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
To get a quick estimation on the amount of compensation you could be entitled to, you might find it helpful to try our Compensation Calculator.
