Can I claim if I am injured in my hotel abroad?
If you are injured in a hotel or resort on holiday, and this was as result of someone else’s negligence, then you can make a claim for personal injury just the same as you can claim for personal injury in a hotel in the UK. MG Legal’s team of expert holiday personal injury solicitors accept instruction on a no win no fee basis, for the following holiday injury compensation claims:
What evidence of my holiday accident personal injury claim do I need?
Make sure that your holiday injury reported to a holiday and staff at the hotel.
Take witness details, no matter where the witnesses may be from- in a world of Facebook, Whatapp and email, no matter where the witnesses live, we can communicate with them.
Take photographs of the cause of the incident, such as broken glass in the swimming pool, a broken sun lounger, a defective step, or broken glass or plate. Report the injury, accident or illness to the hotel staff, tour rep or your travel company right at the time of the accident itself.
If you are injured, or ill on holiday and need to see a doctor or go to the hospital, keep receipts of all travelling and prescription expenses you incur which were directly associated with the accident. These are not only refundable, but can be used to prove your injury and help you claim compensation.
If you make a trip to the hospital or seek medical advice from a private doctor, keep all medical records, prescriptions and recommendations that you get from the doctor.
Ask for a copy of your medical notes- this may come at a small cost, but saves a lot of time for your personal injury solicitor requesting them from a foreign country at a later date.
Who can I claim from if I am injured or ill on holiday?
In order to support any claim for holiday injury compensation, subject to the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 you must be able to prove that the accident or injury was due to the negligence of the tour operator, travel agent. the hotel, or hotel staff, which is their representative, were responsible for your injury. If you booked flights, and then your accommodation, in two completely separate transactions, then your claim for holiday injury compensation would be against the hotel. If the hotel is in a foreign country, this would mean that any claim would be made subject to the laws of the country where the hotel and resort are based.
How much compensation will I receive if I am injured on holiday?
There is no one answer that we can give in response to this question. Every one of MG Legal’s clients are different, the injuries the sustain vary, as do the effects on their lives. From injuries to the head, neck and upper body, to broken ankles and legs as a result of a lack of warning signs around the swimming pool. Personal injury compensation, often called general damages, is based upon the nature and severity of the injuries sustained, and to the area of the body affected (link).
The best way to answer the question of, how much personal injury compensation will I receive, is to contact MG Legal’s holiday injury compensation solicitors and we will ensure that the best medical treatment is sought for you, and a medical report is compiled, detailing all of your injuries, and how your life has been affected as a result of your injury sustained on public transport. Compensation is broken down into two parts- General Damages, and Special Damages. Click here for case studies of matters settled by MG Legal, and here for details of what you can make a claim for.
How long do I have to make a claim if I was injured on holiday?
The Limitation Act 1980 states that, in most cases at least, an injured party has 3 years to make a claim for personal injury compensation, with minors, meaning children under the age of 18, have 3 years from the date of their 18th birthday. However, if you booked your holiday directly with a foreign hotel, tour operator, or resort, time limits will probably differ depending on the country you were in, and the time limit to claim could be as short as months. Contact our expert holiday injury solicitors and we will walk you through the claims process, and put your mind at rest.
