by admin on September 20, 2010


Accidents happen every day; they can happen to anyone, at any time, under any circumstances even on holiday. Claiming compensation for an accident you’ve had whilst on holiday can sometimes be a long and exhausting task.


Accident Claims Helpline™ will help make it an easy and simple task by assisting you along the way and helping you with any paperwork. They will be at your side each step of the way to help you claim the maximum compensation you deserve.


Compensation claims for accidents which have happened abroad are usually subject to the law of the country where the injury occurred, which affects your right to compensation and the value of your holiday accident claim.


However, there are regulations and bodies set up to help victims claim their deserved compensation. The 1992 Package Travel, Package Holiday and Package Tour Regulation aids holiday accident claims. It helps enable victims of a foreign package holiday accident to claim compensation for their injury in the UK.


Holiday tour operators, hotel staff and every company you encounter on your travels have a duty of care to provide you with a safe service. Hotels have to provide a hygienic and clean environment, tour operators have to ensure you’re going to stay safe in your hotel and while travelling to and from the airport, and excursion companies have to assess the risk of the planned trips in order to prevent an accident or injury occurring.


There are many accidents and injuries that can take place whilst on holiday for example; you can be the victim of a slip trip or fall due to wet floors or surfaces or misplaced objects.

You could be involved in a car collision whilst travelling on foreign public transport or whilst driving a rental car. You could also be involved in a car accident whilst on a day excursion.

On a day excursion you could also suffer an injury due to negligence such as whilst water skiing or bungee jumping you could be injured due to lack or tuition from the tutor.

There is always a risk of illness from food poisoning gained due to bad hygiene within the hotel and or restaurant/ buffet.


Even if you’ve had an accident on a holiday outside the EU, Accident Claims Helpline™ will strive to help with your compensation claim in the country of your accident.
