Travel Accidents Abroad

No-one expects a dream holiday to turn into a nightmare scenario, but illness caused by poorly cooked hotel food or injuries by the pool can lead to a ruined break.

At Aequitas Legal we appreciate the unique frustration of saving and looking forward to a holiday, only to have it ruined by illness or injury caused by negligence. We specialise in holiday and sickness claims and can help you to salvage what you can from a holiday that wasn’t what you were expecting, including compensation for illness or injury.

Accidents involving an excursion 

Many of us enjoy going on excursions during our holiday, It could be a scuba diving trip, day out involving a boat ride, or cliff diving.

If something goes wrong, and you receive an injury, it may be likely that you can pursue a civil claim for compensation in the courts of England or Wales against the tour operator.

Road Traffic Accident abroad

As a result of developments in European law, we are progressively able to pursue European road traffic accident claims with the English Courts.

Many European countries have regulations where fault does not need to be demonstrated in cases involving passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. 

If you are involved in a road traffic accident abroad whether as a driver or passenger or whether in a car, taxi, coach or bus, it is possible that you may have a right to seek compensation if another party was in error and it is obvious. In certain countries you must seek medical attention straight away as this can be a requirement to compensation in some countries.

Illnesses through Food Poisoning

Unfortunately, food poisoning is fairly common these days.  Luckily, food poisoning usually only presents mild symptoms; however, it can be more serious and can even lead to fatalities in some cases.

Food poisoning normally happens after food or drink we consume is contaminated with bacteria, viruses or chemicals.  The most common type of food poisoning is bacteria in food poisoning which many people suffer on holiday and is becoming a regular occurrence.

Accidents at a Holiday Resort

The accomplishment of your personal injury claim will depend on your evidence that backs your case up. So make sure you report your injury to your doctor or medical officer at your resort as soon as you can. It is also worth asking them to confirm your accident / illness in writing.

Any photographic evidence of your accident or injury may also be useful.

Do you have a case? 

Taking the step to ask for help after an accident whilst on holiday through no fault of your own can be difficult. We use our many years' experience in dealing with travel claims to get the compensation you deserve to recover after your injury.
