Slip or Trip Holiday Accident Compensation Claims – Holiday Hotels Beware!

If you have suffered a holiday injury as a result of an accident abroad which was not your fault, Simpson Millar’s specialist holiday accident claims solicitors can help you obtain the compensation you deserve from your tour provider.

Simon Lomax, Holiday Illness Claims Manager, says:

"Over a third of all major holiday injuries reported to our Holiday Claims Team each year are the result of slip and trip accidents in hotels abroad."

"Holiday compensation claims brought because of an accident and injury can be extremely damaging to tour operators, many of which are self insured or pay huge insurance excess payments for compensation claims."

"Hotels abroad and tour operators can help to reduce the number of slip and trip hazards through the implementation of the guidance set out by the Federation of Tour Operators. Good health and safety arrangements are often simple, cheap and lead to other benefits, such as, a significant reduction in holiday accident compensation payments!"

Simon continues to say:

"Unfortunately, many tour operators state that this guidance is only advisory in nature and simply warrant in their glossy holiday brochures that the accommodation featured operates to its own country’s health and safety standards and regulations."

"Surely the only way that tour operators are in a position to make these claims is if they have already ascertained what the local standard and regulations are and have checked that the accommodation supplied complies with them?"

"However, certain tour operators have absolutely no idea of what the local standard of health and safety is in a particular country, and simply rely on the fact that the onus is on the injured holidaymaker to prove fault when judged by local standards of health and safety when pursuing a claim for compensation."

"This is an extremely difficult hurdle for solicitors firms who do not specialise in holiday accident compensation claims. Fortunately, our Holiday Accident and Injury Claims team has the experience, know-how, finance, and contacts to overcome this issue."

In successful trip and slip holiday compensation claims, damages can be substantial as can legal costs – compensation and costs which are eventually met by the tour operator. Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors have acted for hundreds of clients over the years recovering millions of pounds in compensation for its injured clients.
