HOLIDAY ACCIDENT SOLICITORS - INJURY COMPENSATION CLAIM UKSOLICITORS HELPLINE: ☎ 0330 660 7119
A recent series of rulings in the High Court has shown that there are a growing number of holiday accident claims tempered by a new judicial realism in the courts which now require there to have been a serious breach of contract by the holiday company which gave rise to an accident in order for there to be a valid claim thereby removing the more frivolous or speculative actions issued by holiday accident solicitors seen in the courts of late.
Package Holiday Compensation Claims
The Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 cover most package holiday organisers and retailers including travel agents. Holiday accommodation must be of a reasonable standard and must be as described in the tour operators brochures or advertisements which must provide comprehensive information about the holiday to the consumer both before a contract is entered into and a reasonable time before the travel package itself is taken. These regulations ensure that holiday companies are responsible by way of providing security for the repatriation of holiday makers in the event of insolvency.
Foreign Time Limits
Holiday accident solicitors are called upon to deal with all manner of foreign claims ranging from minor slipping and tripping cases to substantial group actions, such as food poisoning cases and coach crashes. These claims need handling with care by a solicitor, particularly in regards to limitation periods which can be as short as 6 months from the date of the accident in parts of the US and the Dominican Republic.
Multi Party Action
Victims who are injured on holiday where a number of other holiday makers are also injured by the same event, including food poisoning or motor vehicle crashes, can often join together and take multi party action which has the advantage of all cases being settled at the same time with an effective pooling of evidence and substantial reduction in solicitors legal costs.
