Are UK holiday destinations prepared for COVID ‘Staycation’ rush?
In the uncertain times of the Covid-19 crisis, many of us are choosing to make our holiday plans here in the UK as uncertainty and concern over travel abroad continues through the school holiday period.
This will hopefully prove a timely boost for the British tourist economy with attractions such as holiday camps, caravan / camping sites and outdoor activity centres seeing an increase in post-lockdown occupancy. With increased demand, there is of course an increased risk that something could go wrong. The travel law solicitors at Holiday Claims Bureau have successfully represented clients who have suffered illness or injury arising from incidents such as:
- Food poisoning
- Slips, trips and falls
- Bed bug bites
- Illnesses caught from hot tubs and spa pools
- Accidents on hotel premises
- Trail cycling, road cycling and motor racing accidents
- Playground accidents
- Road Traffic Accidents
At a time when you’re supposed to be engaged in relaxation or recreation, sudden illness or injury can be especially distressing for those involved. Holiday injuries are all too common, and our team of experts have in-depth knowledge of the legal arguments involved, as well as the support that is needed for clients at a difficult time.
Who could you claim against?
If you are injured or become ill and it was someone else’s fault, you could have grounds under UK legislation make a claim against one of the following:
- The tour operator or organiser of your break
- The occupier of the premises where the accident happened
- The local authority
- Your employer
- Another individual
Whatever the circumstances of your accident, we recommend that you speak to our specialist team who will be able to establish the correct party to whom any claim should be submitted.
