Holiday Claims

If you have an accident, injury, or develop an illness whilst on holiday that was not your fault, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. Likewise, if you have had a "Holiday from Hell" you may also be able to claim back some or all of the cost of the holiday.

Wherever you are in the world there are laws in place to protect you. These laws can ensure that you have a right to claim compensation in respect of the accident or illness you have suffered.

An accident abroad can be a traumatic and stressful experience for you and your family. Not only can dealing with the injury/illness cause substantial anguish and disruption, but being in a foreign country without the vital support and guidance that you need can also be very daunting.

Relevant Experience
  • Mrs H, who was registered blind, contracted Legionnaires Disease whilst on a Saga holiday in Spain. Before she was repatriated she not only suffered the terrible symptoms herself but her long term partner contracted the disease at the same time and later died of the Disease. She was left with long term physical problems as a result of her medical condition, in addition to losing her long term companion and carer. Saga's insurers admitted liability but refused to pay an interim payment to allow her to provide alternative care. We therefore issued court proceedings and quickly brought the distressing process to an end. We were able to secure damages of £120,000 for Mrs H, who can now draw a line under this very sad episode in her life.
  • Mrs M travelled to the Bulgarian resort of Elenite with her family of ten for an all- inclusive two week stay. The accommodation at their hotel was appalling, with stained beds, dirty pillows and poor food, resulting in the family suffering diarrhoea, sickness and stomach cramps. There was also a lack of entertainment and no swimming pool, despite these features being advertised. Court proceedings were issued against the travel agent for the loss of enjoyment of holiday, and we successfully recovered damages to the sum of £3,000.
