package holiday & travel accident claims

Accidents whilst on holiday can have a devastating impact at a time you are often relaxed and vulnerable.  Here at Lees we are specialists in these types of claims and can guide you through the process of claiming the compensation you deserve.

Lees Solicitors can obtain compensation for the injury as well as any necessary rehabilitation that may be required.

A package holiday claim would fall under the Package Travel Regulations, 1992. This provides an extensive level of consumer protection and sets out the rules on how tour operators and holiday companies should operate the services they provide.

The law on package holidays means that a claim can be brought against the tour operator or travel agent here in the UK.  This is more straightforward than trying to pursue a claim against a supplier in a foreign country under foreign law.

  1. We handle all kinds of package holiday claims, these can vary from accidents in swimming pools, accidents in hotel rooms and food poisoning outbreaks to name but a few.
  2. If you have had to take time off work as a direct result of this accident, we can also reclaim your loss of earnings.
  3. We understand that any accident whilst on holiday can affect your enjoyment and as such we can include a claim for loss of enjoyment within your claim.

What do I need to provide to make a successful claim?

We advise that any accident whilst on holiday is immediately reported to the representative from the travel operator at the hotel, or facility where you are staying. They should complete an accident report and you are entitled to a copy.

How long do I have to make a claim?

If your accident took place whilst on a cruise you have 2 years from the date of accident to bring a claim. If however it was on an ordinary package holiday you have 3 years from the date of the accident.

What did you think of Lees Solicitors? 

I'm very happy with the excellent and professional service provided by both Elen Wynne Roberts and Catherine Turner. I recovered compensation for my physical injuries, travel, family care and assistance, loss of earnings, dental fees for repair treatment, physiotherapy treatment and for damaged motorbike leathers. 

What did you think of Lees Solicitors? 

May I take this opportunity to express my appreciation to your good-self and to your colleagues for the efficient and professional way in which my personal injury claim was expedited. If it were not for solicitor's practices such as Lees it is doubtful whether individuals would possess either the expertise or professional clout to peruse their claims to a satisfactory conclusion.
