Can I claim if I am injured on holiday?
Posted on 8th August 2019 at 16:45
Our team of Personal Injury Solicitors in Preston have written about accidents in theme parks on more than one occasion, and we often talk about different types of personal injuries you can suffer: road traffic accidents, slips, trips or falls, accidents at work, and medical negligence. However, we don’t often talk about what happens if you are injured abroad.
When you are on holiday, normally you want to be relaxed, sitting sipping your pink gin, and, or reading your favourite book. Some people, however, they want an action-packed adventure, where they get their thrills daily – bungee jumping or walking up Everest (or something that feels as big as Everest, at the time) are just a few of the activities you may decide to partake in. For those of you who were wondering, our team of Personal Injury Solicitors in Preston prefer the former!
For those of you who are injured on your relaxing (or not, relaxing) holiday, claiming compensation might be the last thing on your mind BUT It is definitely something you should think about!
So, what do you need to do to be able to make a successful claim?
#1 Seek Medical Help
If you’re injured, make sure you seek the relevant medical help. Even if it may seem minor at the time, make sure you get the right advice and seek help.
#2 Take Photos
If you have suffered any visible signs of your injuries, such as bruises or cuts, or even a little red mark, make sure you take pictures.
Take a note of all the details of what happened, and where. Be as specific as possible – make a note of timings, places, the exact location of your injury, details of any witnesses who could testify as to what happened during your accident, and any more information that could be relevant to your claim.
#4 Insurance Details
If the place where you were injured is insured, such as with public liability insurance, make sure you take any details so that your Personal Injury Solicitors in Preston can cut out the middle man (and the amount of time it would take to find out the details of who we need to contact!).
