Going on holiday is something which we all look forward to hopefully every year if we are lucky enough. When we go on holiday, it is very easy to let out hair down and to let our inhibitions go. We must be careful however that we don’t relax too much and leave ourselves open to accidents. However, we can be as careful as possible, and accidents can still befall us through other people’s negligence and no fault of out own.
Sometimes when we are abroad, we get lulled into a false sense of security and forget where our usual everyday barriers area. For example, we may try white water rafting or bungee jumping for the first time. We may never even have considered trying this in the past, and all sensibilities may have flown out of the window. This is a real danger zone as different countries may not have the same safety standards as we do here in the UK. If you are practicing any new or dangerous sports abroad, then do check out the qualifications of the staff there and see if they are a member of any professional bodies. This could be the difference between a fun time and a ruined holiday with potential lasting repercussions.
It is important if one has suffered abroad through someone else’s negligence that they make a claim and get the ball rolling within three years of the event itself. The first thing to do is to call the claims company and have a no obligation chat about a no win no fee claim. Don’t be too proud to make that call as you are entitled to compensation for your suffering, for your loss of earnings and for any cash you have outlaid along the way on your journey.
Don’t be put off with regards to claiming for holiday accident damages. It is likely that you will have lost a great deal of money due to the events which have befallen you and that you may need help to get back on your feet again. What is very good news is that using the services of a claims company under a no win no fee system is free and that if you win, you will get to keep 100% of the compensation with the fees for the proceedings coming from the other party. This is a wonderful system as everyone from the very rich to those on a modest income can benefit from it. When you call the claims company, you will be put through to a claims handler who will be able to tell you if you have a case and then a lawyer will be assigned to you.
So, no matter whatever walk of life you are from, and no matter what age you are, you could have a claim for holiday accident compensation. All calls are handled with complete confidentiality, and there is no obligation what so ever to pursue the case when you contact a holiday accident claims company or a personal injury solicitor.
