How to claim for holiday compensation

Here at Russell Worth we deal with all types of personal injury claims including illness or injury when holidaying abroad. For a great many of us, our annual holiday is the highlight of the year and many an hour is spent planning the finer detail, not to mention the saving to pay for it! Precious memories are made on holiday with family, friends and loved ones which last a life time. A slip on the wet floor of a hotel lobby can leave you in agony, worried not only about your health but also how you are going to pay the medical bills and prescription costs, not to mention how you are going to cope returning to work when you get back home. What then, when the unthinkable happens and one of you is injured on holiday through no fault of your own?


Firstly, you have come to the right place. Legal matters can be complex enough without having to take into account foreign legislation which differs from country to country. It makes sense to leave it to the professionals and we are here to help. Please give us a call on 0800 028 2060, and one of our fully trained advisors can talk you through the accident circumstances and provide you with a free, no obligation, claim assessment. Alternatively complete our Online Claim Assessment.

To find out what types of accident abroad cases we can help with we have put together the following article which may be of assistance click here This article also includes useful information on what to do immediately following an accident which can play an important role in assisting with your potential claim in the future. This would include such things as gathering as much evidence as you can which can be used to support your claim and give you the best chance of succeeding.

As well as the obvious physical injuries we also deal with claims involving food poisoning and sickness abroad. There are so many beautiful holiday destinations to choose from but unfortunately not all countries we visit maintain the same food and drink hygiene standards as we do in the UK. In particular this can result in salmonella outbreaks and this can certainly put the brakes on any holiday relaxation!
