Gorvin’s approach to holiday accidents and illnesses claims

Our skilled solicitors work tirelessly to ensure that you receive what is deserved if your holiday has been spoiled through no fault of your own. We handle each of our cases individually, with professionalism and with your needs at the forefront of our minds. It’s important to us that you receive the complete service, which means not only concluding a compensation claim but supporting you to recover from your injury with help from rehabilitation services if necessary until you are back to full fitness.

How do I know if I can claim for a holiday accident or illness abroad?

Whether your holiday was abroad or in the UK, hotels, car hire companies, tour operators, and excursion companies all have a responsibility to make sure you receive a safe service. At Gorvins, our trusted experts have successfully dealt with a wide range of holiday and travel-related accidents including:

  • Road traffic accidents abroad
  • Accidents whilst travelling by plane, train or boat
  • Accidents occurring whilst on organised excursions
  • Accidents at the swimming pool
  • Accidents sustained by slips and fall on slippery surfaces in hotels and other holiday accommodation
  • Illnesses and stomach complaints caused by unsanitary or dirty swimming pools
  • Accidents sustained due to poorly maintained accommodation or hotel furniture
  • Food poisoning and stomach complaints caused by unsanitary food conditions or poor hygiene

How Can Gorvins Help?

In most cases your claim for compensation will be made against the travel agents, tour operators, airline or travel companies here in the UK, so a claim for compensation might not be as complicated as you may think. In most cases, we can offer a no-win, no fee arrangement. For the best chance of success, it is always advisable to collect as much evidence as possible: take photographs, make written notes and if possible collect the contact details of any witnesses.

If you haven’t been able to do this then don’t worry. Our team can still look into the viability of your case and give you an honest assessment and in the vast majority of the case can still look at a way forward for your claim.
