When you’ve paid a lot of money for a Staycation holiday to have a relaxing time in a hotel or resort in the UK, you expect to be kept safe. While accidents are sometimes unavoidable, many hotel and resort accidents are preventable, and hotel staff are responsible for putting measures in place to keep you safe.
If your holiday resort or hotel has failed in their duty to keep you safe, and it’s resulted in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
Get in touch with our Holiday Accident Solicitors for free legal advice and to see if you have a claim. Ask if we can deal with your claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.
As many of our Holiday Accident Solicitors have previously worked for some of the UK’s largest holiday tour operators, they have a wealth of experience in dealing with accidents in hotels and resorts. They have succeeded in winning compensation for thousands of Simpson Millar clients.
Our Solicitors appreciate that travel law can be complex, as you need to prove that the accident was in breach of the regulations or standards where it took place. For example, if an accident happens at a hotel in Devon, Cornwall or Blackpool, such as a fall down some steps with no handrail, UK building regulations will apply.
This is where the expertise of our Holiday Accident Solicitors will be invaluable. Simpson Millar have a network of lawyers, engineers and architects who can help determine whether a hotel has failed to confirm to the required standards.
We understand accidents can happen anywhere but the most popular UK Staycation resort destinations include:
And popular Holiday Park resorts where accidents can occur include Butlins, Haven, Pontins and Centreparcs as well as camping sites and caravan parks across the UK.
We recommend getting legal advice as soon as possible as claiming compensation can get complex depending on the nature of your booking. For example, it can be difficult to determine who your contract is with – it could be with the hotel directly or it could be and operating company or tour operator. The reality is though, you have a far better chance of claiming if the accident happens at a UK hotel than overseas one.
Get in touch for a free initial chat about your accident, and we’ll be happy to help you.
