Unfortunately, holidays can be spoiled when an accident occurs that leads to injury. If an individual has suffered an accident while on holiday abroad or at home they may be entitled to compensation. Blanchardstown's Rory Quigley & Co Solicitors has extensive experience in the field of personal injury* that has occurred while an individual was on holiday. We can help you achieve the legal redress you deserve after being injured while on holiday.
In the event of an injury sustained while abroad, the proper procedures differ depending on how the holiday was booked. If the holiday was booked through a holiday tour operator, then the tour operator may be liable. A reputable company will have insurance for this very thing.
If you booked your holiday through a website you may not be covered in the same way as most websites don’t cover package holidays.
If you’ve been injured while on holiday, we urge you to get in contact with Rory Quigley & Co Solicitors today. Our dedicated legal team will advise you on the best course of action based on your circumstances. We use plain language to make you aware of where you stand legally.
-You should report the incident immediately along with any injuries suffered to the hotel where you are staying. If you travelled with a tour operator it’s important to report the incident to them as well
- Medical care for the injured individual should be sought out as soon as possible.
-Request a written report of the incident and have photographs taken of all injuries as soon as possible.
-Get the contact details of any eye witnesses to the incident; they may become important later on.
-Never accept any financial compensation from anyone before you’ve spoken to a dedicated personal injury* solicitor.
-In different countries the statue for making a claim is different; Rory Quigley & Co Solicitors can help make you aware of all the factors involved when making a claim after an injury abroad.
