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.
An accident abroad can be anything from a road traffic accident, an excursion trip, food poisoning or even if you have been working abroad. Suffering an accident abroad or illness abroad can be very distressing and it can also not just ruin your holiday but the holiday of all the people you are with.
We often find that people do not realise their rights when it comes to a holiday ruined by illness or injury – while a little stomach upset might be par for the course for some when travelling abroad and experiencing a new cuisine, this differs hugely from severe food poisoning caused by poorly prepared food. The first is an inconvenience, the second, a compensation claim.
If you have suffered an accident that was not your fault and could have been avoided, liability could lie with tour operator because it is their legal responsibility to ensure all customers are protected whilst abroad. This includes providing all relevant information to their clients before their travels and making sure healthy and safety regulations are in place.
With accidents that happen abroad, depending on where you are currently are in the world and where the accident happened, there are many ways of assessing compensation overseas. This means that the jurisdiction can make a great difference to the amount of damages that you may be able to recover.
To make a successful claim, you need to prove that the accident / injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, whether it was your travel operators or private excursions company you used whilst out there. This is where Aequitas Legal comes in. Our solicitors will help you compile evidence to present to your travel agents insurers and will ensure you understand where you stand at every stage of the process, as well as what your options are going forward.
With contacts in many countries especially in Europe, Aequitas Legal has the skill and resources to get evidence to support your claim.
Our solicitors will provide you with easy-to-understand advice and guidance throughout the claims process, helping to ease the burden of coping with accidents. We understand that accidents place pressure on you and your family, which is why we’re here to ensure you receive the compensation required to aid and support your recovery.
We approach each case proactively and with sensitivity and care. We are here to help you find the answers you deserve and to get the best possible results for you and your family.
Taking the step to ask for help after an injury that has happened through no fault of your own can be difficult. We use our many years’ experience in dealing with holiday injury claims to get the compensation you deserve to recover after your injury.

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly. I was expecting my case to take the best part of 6 months to resolve but was settled with my cheque in the post within just a few months. Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.
