Thomas Cook is considered by many as the UK’s leading travel brand sending thousands of travellers on holiday abroad annually. Every year our Holiday Accident Lawyers are contacted by hundreds of injured Thomas Cook customers seeking advice on how to complain and recover compensation following a holiday accident.
Unfortunately many holidaymakers are injured in accidents whilst in hotels, cruises, aircrafts, coaches etc. which are sold as part of a Thomas Cook holiday.
Your Thomas Cook holiday is likely to be protected by the 1992 Package Travel Regulations.
If the holiday is a package, Thomas Cook are liable to you for the proper performance of the holiday contract, irrespective of whether it or (more usually) some other supplier such as a hotel, airline, or cruise operator, performs the services promised.
If you suffered from personal injury as a consequence of an accident on a Thomas Cook holiday, and the services fell below the standards applicable in the place where the services and facilities were supplied, the Regulations provide you with legal rights to recover compensation.
The most common accident claims we bring against the tour operator Thomas Cook, involve: slips and trips; electrocutions; swimming pool incidents; glass patio claims; and many other type of personal injury claims which occur in countless countries abroad.

It is always advisable to seek legal advice from a specialist travel lawyer following an accident abroad as you may not fully understand your legal rights or how much compensation you are entitled to receive.
Many injured holidaymakers seek compensation directly from Thomas Cook every year and become frustrated with the claims process and either abandon their accident claim or under settle it. We believe the tour operator’s in-house Customer Legal teams’ use delay and your lack of legal knowledge to facilitate this practice.
All too often we hear of holidaymakers who have accepted holiday vouchers for £500 (or a cash equivalent) in full and final settlement of their claim for injuries sustained in an accident on a Thomas Cook holiday when their claim is worth substantially more.
