Injuries Sustained Whilst on Package Holidays

Every year, in all corners of the globe, around 60 million British citizens in the UK go on holiday.  Several million prefer to opt for a package holiday to help relieve the stress of planning and organising the holiday themselves, the all inclusive method can help to have everything all set out for you before you’ve even stepped on a plane. Unfortunately however, not all package holidays turn out to be as relaxing as one might hope.

Over many years now, there has been an abundance of cases reported of accidents occurring whilst on package holidays. These accidents can range from milder sprains of ankles or wrists all the way up to fractured bones and torn ligaments and limbs. The ramifications of these injuries can result in the victim having to take time off work,  live a poorer quality of life and put them off the idea of a package holiday for good.

The Package Travel, Package Holiday and Package Tour Regulations Act 1992

These regulations were implented to ensure that all package holidays could not be advertised as such without including two out of the three of these activities:

  • Transport
  • Accomodation
  • An excursion or any other significant activity

What these regulations mean is that if you sustain an injury whilst on your package holiday that was organised by the tour operator  and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to make a significant claim against them here in the UK with us at Manners Pimblett.

It is much easier to make your claim here with us in the UK than try abroad because you won’t have to worry about a language barrier or travel costs, you can call or email us today and expect a quick and helpful response. 

I think I’m entitled to make a claim, but what’s my next step?

Take some time to collate your information together so you can directly relate your claim to an activity or enivornment set up by your tour operator. 

Try and document just how your injury affected your holiday and your life afterwards.  Have a look as well at the effect on your finances and your loved ones. It is very important that we can present the full weight of the burden your injury has created on all of these factors in court.
