Holiday Accident Compensation Claims
Being involved in an accident or developing an illness whilst on a holiday abroad is perhaps one of the worst times to get injured or sick. Most of us work hard all year and save up to go away. Frequently, we are in need of a good rest.
An injury to a family member can often spoil the holiday for the entire family. Time spent in a foreign hospital or clinic, or recovering in a hotel room, is not the best way to spend your well-earned break.
An individual’s right to claim holiday accident compensation varies from country to country, and upon whether the holiday was booked as part of a package holiday from a holiday company or travel agent.
The Claims Partnership solicitors in Preston can help you navigate through the process and claim compensation for your injury, your loss of enjoyment on holiday, as well as any medical bills that you have incurred. If you or a member of your family has developed gastroenteritis or a stomach illness whilst abroad, please see our Holiday Sickness Claims page.
Frequent causes of holiday accidents and illnesses
- An individual or family develops food poisoning as a result of consuming food prepared and served in their hotel. Please see our page holiday sickness claims.
- A holidaymaker trips or falls as a result of a broken floor or step within the hotel premises.
- Serving staff in a hotel restaurant fail to clean up a spillage.
- There are dangerous or not-maintained areas around a swimming pool, such as broken tiles or missing steps leading into the pool.
- Most holiday claims arise at the dinner table from consuming infected food.
- According to some holiday accident statistics the most dangerous part of the holiday is the trip to and from the airport!

What to do you if are injured on holiday
- If you have been injured as a result of a defect within the whole hotel premises, such as a broken step or danger within your hotel room, take a photograph of what caused you to be injured.
- When taking photographs of a hazard, ensure that a longer view photograph is taken showing the hazard within the context of its surroundings.
- Take down the name of any fellow holidaymakers who witnessed the accident, or who have also been injured.
- Report the accident to the Hotel manager and your Holiday Rep if you have one.
- Obtain a medical report, receipt or contact details for the Clinic where you received any treatment.
- If you are still suffering on your return to the UK, ensure that you make an appointment with your GP or local Walk In Centre to report your injuries. If you think your injury is serious, consider going to A&E.
