If you are injured or made ill because of an accident on holiday, there are things you can do at the scene of your accident to collect evidence to support your personal injury claim, which your holiday accident solicitor will be able to use later. We have listed these steps below:
- If you are injured on a package holiday to Greece report your accident to the tour operator. Make sure they record the details of your accident accurately.
- If you are injured because of a road traffic accident in Greece, exchange contact details with the other driver involved. Make a note of the other vehicle’s model, colour and the number on the registration plate.
- Photograph your injuries if it is safe to do so, including a date stamp.
- Photograph the hazard that caused your injuries if it is safe to do so, including a date stamp
If you have to buy anything because of your injuries or illness, keep the receipts, as you may be able to use them as evidence at a later stage. You may also be able to claim back these expenses as part of your compensation package.
Of course if you are made seriously injured or ill, your first priority should be getting to a doctor’s surgery or hospital as appropriate. Everything else can wait. A friend or family member can always do the above for you, or you can return to the scene of the accident at a later date.

What damages could I be eligible to claim for an accident on holiday in Mykonos?
When it comes to claiming personal injury compensation, the damages you receive would relate to your injuries, and how they have affected you financially. They would also compensate you for the pain and suffering you experienced as well as any loss of amenity. In general terms, personal injury claims payouts can be broken down into:
- Special damages- these are designed to compensate the victims or personal injury for costs that they have sustained and losses they have suffered due to their injuries and the accident. Special damages could include costs such as those for care at home, travel or medical expenses. They could also compensate victims of personal injury for loss of earnings they’ve experienced due to their injuries.
- General damages-this is the compensation that you would receive for the suffering and pain you have experienced. You would need to put forward evidence as to the nature and severity of your injuries. To do this, a hospital or GP record would not be enough. You’d need to see an independent medical specialist, who could examine you and then write a report. Courts and lawyers could utilise this medical report to arrive at an appropriate compensation settlement amount.
If you would like to ask us anything about the personal injury compensation you could receive and what damages you could claim for, please call our team.
