Accident On Holiday? PHC Law Can Help
After all the excitement that precedes going on holiday, there is nothing worse than something happening like a accident on holiday while you’re away that leads to a spell in hospital, or having to stay inside your hotel room while everyone else enjoys the sun outside.
Often, looking forward to a holiday is more enjoyable than the holiday itself, and that is certainly the case if you have an accident while you’re abroad, and have to deal with doctors who may not speak English, and hospitals that seem strange.
But if the worst does happen, and you do have an accident while you’re on holiday, then don’t worry – PHC Law, one of the UK’s leading and most respected firm of personal injury lawyers, can help you.
What can go wrong?
It’s a horrible thing to think about, but often you’re more at risk when you’re on holiday then you are when you’re in the relatively comfortable, and well known surroundings of your home town. This can lead to taking a little less care than you usually would without thinking – but a large number of accidents can happen that aren’t even your fault.
In the hotel
The truth of the matter is that hotel owners in popular holiday destinations face so much competition that they often do things on the cheap. For example, perhaps the bathroom is badly installed and the bathroom floor is constantly wet as a result of bad drainage systems. This makes it hazardous to walk on, but it’s easy to pop to the bathroom when you come back from a day by the pool and forget about it. Or perhaps a floor tile is loose, and you trip over it in your flip-flops.
Out and about
Hotel owners aren’t the only people facing competition in a holiday hot spot. Often, restaurant owners are so intent on bringing in the customers, or winning over customers from a rival, that they offer cheap food and prices that seem impossible to make a profit from. In these times of austerity it’s easy to go for these offers, but badly cooked food can lead to illness, meaning you may spend the rest of your holiday in bed.
None of the situations above are the fault of the holidaymaker, but they, and many other similar situations, can lead to a dream holiday being ruined.
