Am I entitled to Compensation for an Accident Abroad?

When you book a package holiday your tour operator is legally responsible for you and your family’s health and safety.

If you sustain an injury at your hotel or on-board your aircraft or coach hotel transfer your tour operator could be liable and consequently you could be entitled to claim substantial compensation.

The law permits you 3 years to claim compensation from the date of your accident and in the case of children the 3 years begin from the date a child attains the age of 18 years.

There are exceptions. If your personal injury happened on an airplane or cruise ship the time limit may only be 2 years from the date of your accident.

When you make a personal injury accident claim you can claim back all the money your accident has cost to you such as the cost of your spoilt holiday and any wages you may have lost.

You can also claim a lump sum for your personal injury which is for your ‘pain and suffering’.
