No person wants to have their holiday ruined by a mishap on holiday, particularly one that results in the need for a claim for an accident abroad.

But what should a person do if another party's negligence causes them to sustain injury while on holiday abroad, and in what situations might it be possible to claim compensation?

The good news is that if the accident happened as part of an activity or stay that was booked under the Package Travel Regulations it may be possible to ensure financial redress for pain and injury, medical expenses and lost earnings.

If you believe that you may have a valid claim for an accident abroad under the Package Travel Regulations, contact Thompsons Scotland personal injury lawyers today by calling 0800 0891 331.

When things go wrong

Unfortunately, personal injury lawyers time and again receive the same kinds of claims, often for accidents involving the same package tour operators in the same locations in similar circumstances to cases they have previously dealt with.

For example, claims for accidents and illnesses involving holidaymakers who have booked package holidays in the Dominican Republic, Egypt, Mexico, Turkey or the Canary Islands are all too common.

Frequently these claims are for simple avoidable accidents such as slip, trips and falls, while just as often they are for illnesses related to poor food hygiene in restaurants and bars. Contaminated swimming pools are another common source of bacterial illnesses.

It is also worth bearing in mind that those who sustain accident injuries while in transit on their package holiday are also entitled to claim, whether the incident has happened on a coach, a minibus, in a car or during some other package holiday organised trip.

Help yourself

Any claim for an accident abroad will benefit from a few important steps. For example, it is useful to obtain medical treatment and suitable documentation of your consultation and injuries at the earliest possible opportunity.

Be sure to also take witness statements and names and addresses of witnesses where possible. Once this has been done it is a good idea to contact the package holiday firm and, when necessary, to seek the advice of a good personal injury solicitor.
