Holiday season is upon us! Millions of Brits will be escaping the summer rain and jetting off to take in some sun, culture and much needed time away from work.
While everyone’s always excited about the good things that happen on holiday, sometimes an unexpected accident can hijack the whole getaway.
Accidents happen, and an accident on a long-awaited holiday can have consequences that go beyond the plane landing back home.
When you arrive home, you may want to claim compensation for your injuries, spoiled holiday, medical fees, lost earnings and emergency travel costs.
Accidents abroad can include:
- Road traffic accidents
- Cruise ship accidents
- Accidents on hotel premises, such as tripping on an uneven surface or slipping on a wet surface
- Swimming pool accidents
- Food poisoning
- Accidents happening while on an organized excursion
- Objects falling from overhead lockers on board airplanes
