Leading law firm Roythornes has announced that its Charity of The Year will be St Barnabas...
We all go on holiday hoping to have a fantastic break, but accidents do happen, and when they do you should ensure you receive the compensation you are due.
How Roythornes can help
- We are experienced in all types of holiday accident and compensation claims
- We are professional solicitors – not a claims handling company
- We have 'feet on the ground' with a network of agents abroad to help claim your holiday compensation
You may have pain and suffering, a ruined holiday and out of pocket medical expenses – all of which could form part of a claim for compensation.
It's bad enough having an accident in the UK, but if you have been involved in an accident on holiday it can be an even more confusing time. Language problems, time constraints and different regulations can all complicate matters and the last thing you need when you've been injured abroad.
There is no reason why you should not be entitled to compensation for accidents abroad as you are in the UK, but you need a solicitor with holiday compensation experience.
Examples of the type of accidents on holiday include
- Road traffic accidents as a driver, passenger or pedestrian
- Slips and trips in hotels or other establishments
- Food poisoning from hotels or restaurants
- Injuries due to poor condition and safety of holiday accommodation
If you were injured on a holiday organised as part of a package, it is likely that the claim will be against the company with whom you booked the holiday. If you travel independently, it is more likely to be against the business abroad. Our specialist team has agents and contacts in most countries who can take the stress and worry out of holiday compensation claims.
Cycling Accidents Abroad
Government statistics suggest that a growing number of people have taken to cycling in recent years and the numbers continue to rise. As a result, cycling holidays both here in the UK and abroad are becoming increasingly popular with tourists. However, with the increased number of people taking to cycling has increased the number of cycling accidents.
We have represented clients involved in accidents in the UK and abroad as a result of accidents on the daily commute, during a leisurely biking trip or on an adventurous biking holiday.
