A holiday should lodge itself in the mind as one the highlights of our year.Â We work hard for our annual trip or trips away and they often become the kind of memories that live with us forever; however on certain occasions these memories can be ruined by the negligence of others.
Holiday claims can be a common occurrence and if you feel like you have been the subject of mistreatment you can rightfully pursue a claim, ensuring that you gain some form of recompense and that the form of negligence that you’ve suffered doesn’t happen again.
Some forms of injury or ailment are more common than others with things like food poisoning, slips, falls and trips being particularly prevalent.Â Standards of hygiene and maintenance in other countries may not meet the same high standards as in the UK but due to acts like the Package Holidays and Package Tour Regulations Act 1992 we can still be legally protected under UK law if our holiday meets the right criteria.Â Firms like Express Solicitors are experts in these fields and are on hand to guide you through any claim you may make,Â find examples and precedents on their informative website.
If you do sustain any form of injury whilst on holiday you can supplement your case by taking things like witness statements and photos.Â Making a diary of events can be invaluable but even if these things aren’t in place you can still build a case with the help of firms like Express Solicitors who operate on a no win no fee basis.
Perhaps you’ve been injured whilst swimming, by faulty fixtures, or by unhygienic food; all of these claims are perfectly reasonable and if you’ve suffered at the hands of a negligent holiday service provider you are well within your rights to seeks compensation.
