Holiday accident and illness compensation lawyers

Holiday accident and illness

Injuries which are sustained on holiday abroad are types of claim which are often subject to different rules on time limits or the types of claim which can be made on your behalf. For instance, if you are injured on a ship or in an aeroplane, you may only have two years in which to start a legal action for compensation. If you are injured on holiday, the rules change depending on whether you booked your holiday as a package or not.

Lawyers listed on this page specialise in making compensation claims for holiday accidents and illnesses.
