Cyprus Holiday Claims

Accident or Illness Compensation Service

Whether you have been ill on holiday or injured abroad our experienced Holiday Claims Specialists can help you to claim the compensation you deserve after a ruined holiday.

If your answer to any of the questions that appear below is "YES" you should seek legal advice.

Cyprus Hotel and Sea Front

Illness Abroad - Can I Claim?

  • Did you become sick during your holiday due to food poisoning or dirty hotel conditions?
  • Were you unhappy with the quality of the food? (perhaps it was not cooked thoroughly or left exposed or served lukewarm)

Every year many holiday makers contract unpleasant infections including Salmonella and E-coli because of poor food preparation and handling practices at hotels abroad. Many others contract equally unpleasant bacterial infections such as cryptosporidium and shigella because of failings in basic hygiene standards at hotels.

Expectations and Responsibility

When you travel on holiday abroad you are entitled to expect your accommodation to be clean and food to be fit for human consumption. You have not paid your hard earned money to be supplied with substandard accommodation or food that will make you ill!

If you become sick because food at your hotel was not cooked properly or perhaps because the swimming pool water was unclean or your hotel room was damp then your tour operator is responsible.

Accident Abroad - Can I Claim?

  • Did you suffer an accident during your holiday abroad?
  • Do you believe someone else was to blame for your accident?
  • Could your accident have been avoided?

Every year thousands of tourists are injured during their holidays and in the majority of cases their accidents could have been avoided.

The most common accidents are slipping accidents caused by wet floor surfaces or spillages. We often hear of maids wet mopping shiny marble floors and leaving them wet and without any warning signs displayed to alert the unwary.

Case Examples

Broken tile in swimming pool causes deep cut to holiday maker's knee

Our client was involved in a holiday accident in Cyprus which resulted in a deep wound to her knee caused by a broken swimming pool tile. Sadly this type of holiday accident is common. We successfully secured an admission of liability from the tour operator resulting in our client receiving many thousand of pounds in compensation.

Slipping on steps causes back injury whilst on holiday in Cyprus

We represented a client who suffered a serious back injury whilst on holiday in Cyprus when she slipped on steps leading from a Jacuzzi. Following the accident the hotel installed a handrail and non-slip edging to the steps. If these simple safety measures had been taken beforehand then the accident would have been avoided. Our client is now pursuing her tour operator for substantial compensation for her injuries.
