Thomson Holidays are the largest tour operator in the UK, the company sending thousands of package holidaymakers to numerous worldwide destinations every year. Unfortunately many travellers are injured in accidents abroad and require the specialist travel expertise of Simpson Millar LLP’s personal injury lawyers.
We offer guidance and help to those looking to claim compensation for injuries sustained abroad through no fault of their own whilst on a Thomson Holiday.
Thomson’s customers are often injured whilst staying in hotels such as the Sensatori Hotel; Thomson Celebration and Dream cruises; aircrafts; transfer coaches etc. which are sold as part of a package holiday.
Holidays sold by Thomson at an inclusive price which include flights, accommodation, transfers and the services of a Representative are likely to benefit from powerful consumer protection in the form of the 1992 Package Travel Regulations.
If your travel arrangements constitute a package, Thomson Holidays are liable to you for the proper performance of the holiday contract, irrespective of whether the tour operators of one it its suppliers of services provides the services promised in its brochures, on its web site, or elsewhere.
Whilst these services are judged by local standards of health and safety, those who are injured in an accident abroad are able to claim compensation directly from Thomson if they can prove fault on the part of a supplier of services.
We regularly pursue claims against the tour operator, Thomson Holidays, for a variety of injuries from broken arms, legs, wrist to more serious head injuries and amputations. Typical Thomson claims include slips and tripping accidents, electrocutions, lacerations from glass, and swimming pool incidents all of which occur in numerous locations abroad.
As personal injury lawyers who specialise in Thomson holiday accident claims we can help you to obtain the compensation you are entitled to following an accident which was not your fault.
Having suffered from a Holiday Accident it is likely that the injury ruined your holiday - you may have sustained further losses because you were unable to work and/or incurred medical expenses. Holidaymakers looking to claim compensation from Thomson are invited to speak to Simpson Millar free of charge for initial advice before you embark on the claims process.
We always advise holidaymakers to speak to an experienced travel solicitor as you may not fully understand your legal rights or how much compensation you could receive.
Holidaymakers often seek compensation directly from Thomson and become frustrated with the Pre Action Protocol for Personal Injury Protocol and either abandon their claim or under settle it. We believe the tour operator’s in-house staff use the complexities of the process to introduce frustration and delay to limit claims.
We are regularly approached by holidaymakers who have accepted holiday vouchers or a cheque for a fraction of their personal injury claims true value. We guide our client through the minefield of holiday travel law and ensure they receive appropriate compensation.
If you or a family member sustain injury following an accident on a Thomson holiday and/or if you have been the victim of gastric illness at your hotel, then our holiday claims lawyers are just a phone call away.
