Holiday Hotel Accidents
At Holiday Claims Bureau, we have a proud track record of helping clients secure awards of compensation following accidents on holiday where personal injury has been sustained at the hotel complex. The Tour Operator has a duty of care to its customers in relation to the performance of the holiday package. If you are injured in a holiday hotel accident as a result of a failure by the Tour Operator, then you could have grounds to make a claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.
If you or a member of your travelling party has been injured in an accident and the hotel or Tour Operator is at fault, then UK package holiday regulations offer protection to you as a consumer.
Typical hotel accident claims in which Holiday Claims Bureau have successfully represented clients include:
- Slips and trips within the hotel complex
- Unsafe steps, staircases and lifts
- Dangerous swimming pool areas
- Injuries from broken glass not attended to
- Accidents and illnesses caused by unsafe air conditioning
- Playground / play park accidents
- Dangerous electrical equipment / fittings
- Burns and scalds from food
Hotel accidents – important advice
Holiday Claims Bureau accident solicitor Tracy Stansfield explains:
“We help our clients in pursuing a range of personal injury claims arising from accidents occurring in their hotel complex. The causes and circumstances can vary greatly, as can the severity of the injuries sustained.
Sometimes, clients may have attempted to complain about their accident to the hotel or Tour Operator directly without response or have have had their complaint dismissed altogether.
I would recommend, as always, that injured holidaymakers seek appropriate medical attention, evidence their losses and gather any evidence that supports their version of events including photographs. Too often communication between the hotel staff, management and Tour Operator does not follow any recognisable protocol when an accident occurs. Make sure that the Tour Representative completes a formal accident report and provides you with a copy of this report.”
How we can help
It’s important to seek legal advice on these matters, as when liability is disputed, even though the Tour Operator has a duty to fulfil performance of the package, arguments can extend to local, rather than UK standards being applied to the specifics of the accident. We are never daunted by this, and if you have been impacted by a hotel accident we’re more than happy to speak to you.
We assess every claim we take on to make sure that we address the full extent of pain, suffering and expenses incurred by our clients both pertaining to the holiday and on their return to the UK.
