An accident when on holiday abroad is particularly distressing. Not only is an accident likely to ruin your holiday but feeling ill or in pain when you're far from home is a horrible experience.
If you've been unlucky and have had an accident on a package holiday abroad the lawyers at Alker Ball Healds solicitors will be able to help you get the compensation you deserve.
If your holiday was a package holiday (which means that your accommodation, travel or other services such as care hire) were organised for you by a Tour Operator, you could have a claim for compensation against the Tour Operator.
Under the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 every Tour Operator is under a legal duty to ensure that the accommodation they arrange is safe and hygienic and that their customers are not exposed to the risk of any injury or infection or disease. If your Tour Operator has breached that duty you could have a claim for compensation.
