Pages On: Accidents and Sickness Abroad

Holidays are a great way for us to rest, recuperate, and get a break from everyday lives. However, it’s not uncommon for holidaymakers to be let down by their travel provider, and have their holiday ruined. If a company you have booked with doesn’t properly assess the safety of the accommodation, people can be prone to bugs and other illnesses, especially where food hygiene is concerned. There is also great risk of accidents abroad, where warnings may not be translated, of the health and safety laws not as comprehensive as our own. If you suffered in any way whilst being on holiday abroad, you may be entitled to claim compensation. But there is only a two-year window, as opposed to the three-year window in other personal injury claims.

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
