How can our holiday accident solicitors help you?

Falling ill while on holiday is fairly common, and can cause significant disruption to your plans. If you become ill during a holiday that was organised by a tour operator, they can be held accountable if it is determined they are responsible. 

Our solicitors will examine the details of your case and help you to approach the next steps. We will explain your rights to you in clear, easy-to-understand language and ensure that the claims process is as stress-free and straightforward as possible.

At Percy Hughes & Roberts, we have particular expertise in dealing with holiday illness and accident claims involving: 

  • Food poisoning 
  • E. coli
  • Norovirus 
  • Salmonella 
  • Slips, trips and falls 
  • Road traffic accidents in a foreign country 
  • Cruise ship accidents 
  • Accidents on an excursion or trip 
  • Swimming pool accidents 

Many of these accidents and illnesses can be debilitating, and can have a significant impact on the rest of your holiday - as well as your life when you return home. We understand the distress that such ailments can cause, and will do our utmost to claim the compensation you deserve. 

We will provide straightforward, pragmatic and compassionate advice at every step, and we will handle your case on a no win, no fee basis.

Who is responsible for a holiday accident or illness?

If you become unwell or sustain an injury on a holiday that has been organised by a tour operator, they may be held responsible. Our solicitors will ensure that the circumstances of your case are investigated properly and that those who are responsible for your illness or injury are held to account.

What does the compensation cover? 

When you have an accident or illness on holiday, especially abroad, it can be very costly. The compensation awarded takes into account:

  • Personal injury
  • Illness from food poisoning such as salmonella and E. coli
  • Loss of earnings due to your holiday illness or accident
  • Medical treatment fees
  • Accommodation costs
  • Loss of enjoyment of your holiday
  • Travel expenses
  • Taxi fares
  • Prescription costs
