Accidents Abroad

Accidents on Holiday 

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. 

About Accidents Abroad

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.

Advice on accidents or injuries on:

Example holiday accident claims

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 new cuisine, this differs hugely from severe food poisoning caused by poorly prepared food. The first is an inconvenience, the second, a compensation claim. 

We have claimed for:

  • Poolside slips and trips
  • Food poisoning
  • Contagious illness caused by poor hotel or resort hygiene
  • Accidents abroad

Example holiday accident claims

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 new cuisine, this differs hugely from severe food poisoning caused by poorly prepared food. At best this could be classed as an inconvenience, at worst this would have effected your holiday and would demand compensation.  

We have helped victims claim for:

  • Poolside slips and trips
  • Food poisoning
  • Contagious illness caused by poor hotel or resort hygiene
  • Slips in hotels
  • Road traffic accidents abroad
  • Slips by the swimming pool

Who is responsible?

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.

Making a claim for compensation

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.

This is where Aequitas Legal comes in.
