Injury claims from a package holiday or tour operator - Expert International lawyers

A holiday can be ruined by an injury or sickness suffered while on a package holiday or tour, and the after effects could have consequences long after you are able to return home.  Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to claim compensation from the tour operator.

Our multilingual personal injury lawyers specialise in holiday and travel accident claims, both national and international, and whether the tour was organised for a holiday, education, sport, or business travel.

We are accredited by APIL, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, and have strong links in Europe, especially France and Spain.

Accident checklist
  1. Seek medical attention ASAP and record the name of medical centre and staff who see you.
  2. Report the incident to the tour operator or holiday rep.
  3. Do not accept ‘goodwill’ offers of compensation while on holiday as this could compromise your claim when you get home.
  4. Take photos of location and weather.
  5. Retain any available evidence.
  6. Obtain names and contact details of witnesses or anyone else who was affected.
  7. Keep all receipts for medical and related expenses.
  8. Retain all travel documents.
  9. Check if your travel or home insurance policy covers legal fees.

  • Successfully secured compensation for a British lady who slipped in a hotel in Mexico and sustained a complicated orthopaedic fracture which would require further surgery in the future.
