A guide to Jet2 Package Holiday Accident Claims

If you are thinking of making any kind of personal accident claim then first of all we need to ensure that your holiday was indeed a package holiday. This can be a grey area but a package holiday is usually one that has been arranged by a company where at least 2 of the following elements were included:

  • Transport
  • Accommodation
  • Other services not ancillary to the above and comprising of a significant amount of the holiday such as excursions.

Even if the different elements were been paid from different accounts – it would still count as a package holiday. It can still be classed as a package holiday even if it you selected your own choice of accommodation, flights and/or other services such as excursions as long as these were all paid for at the same time.

We appreciate that it can be confusing for you to fully determine whether your particular holiday/booking variables/method of payment etc constituted a package holiday so please do ring Accident Claims to be connected to a personal injury lawyer who will be able to be confirm this for you.

What Are The Most Frequent Types Of Injury Or Accident People Suffer On Holiday?

  • When you are on holiday often the same rules we follow at home do not apply. This means we may throw caution to the wind and try different activities, different foods etc precisely because we are on holiday! We rely on package holiday providers such as Jet2 to keep us safe when trying these new experiences. As well as accidents caused by a slip, trip or fall or car/moped hire or those suffered on excursions such as rock climbing, swimming etc we may also be unfortunate enough to suffer food allergies or poisoning in a hotel restaurant.

Common examples of the most frequent types of injury or accident include:-

  • Slips, trips and falls that could be caused by wet flooring, uneven tile surfaces or worn carpeting etc within the hotel.
  • Swimming accidents such as a slip, trip or fall at the side of the pool or drowning in the pool.
  • A fall from a hotel balcony or during an excursion e.g. rock climbing.
  • Injury received as the result of defective hotel furniture such as a collapsing bed or sun lounger.

If you have suffered a food allergies or type of accident such as those described above please contact Accident Claims to verify whether you are eligible to claim compensation and if so – how much compensation you could be owed by Jet2 for your poor holiday experience and injury/illness and inconvenience and costs suffered.

Is Jet2 Holidays Responsible For My Safety?

The 1992 Package Travel, Holiday and Tour Regulations state that tour operator companies such as Jet2 owe you – their customer – a duty of care and that when you book a package holiday through them; you are required to sign a contract that details this responsibility. They then become responsible for your health and safety throughout the holiday and are liable for any breach of this duty of care or breach committed by one of their suppliers such as a excursion operator, food supplier etc.

To be eligible to make a claim for a breach of care it must be determined that they

1) Provided you with an unsafe environment and/or

2) Committed a negligent act. In essence it has to be proved that the accident was THEIR fault. For example – if you slipped on the hotel stairs due to a loose trim then Jet2 would be liable. If however you slipped and the stairs were examined and found to be in safe, serviceable condition; then the tour operator would not have to accept responsibility for the accident.

How Long Do Holiday Makers Have To Claim Compensation?

Legal framework exists to support and compensate victims of Jet2 Package Holiday Accident claims where the tour operator’s duty of care has been breached but the law only supports claims made within a 3 year window of the date when the accident/sickness took place or when you first realised that you had suffered an injury or been ill. This window is reduced to 2 years if the incident took place on a flight booked via Jet2, either flying to or returning from, your holiday destination. Time limits can sometimes very so contact us to be sure.

Because of this personal injury claims time limit please contact Accident Claims now to have the very best chance of winning the compensation you deserve.

Jet2 Holiday Hotel Accident Claims

If you have been unfortunate enough to suffer an injury whilst staying in a hotel booked through the tour operator Jet2 then you could be eligible to make a claim to receive compensation.

Many people stay in package holiday hotels all over the world and most are well run but unfortunately accidents can still happen due to all kinds of reasons from negligence, poorly trained staff, lack of health and safety procedures or breach of such procedures etc resulting in injury or sickness to guests.

Common examples include a slip, trip or fall on a wet floor, an accident within a pool or gym due to inexperienced staff or lack of staff or food poisoning due to poor standards of hygiene within a hotel kitchen, bar or restaurant.

Please note that hotels are expected to comply with the health and safety regulations determined by their own country/area and that these could be different to those set down within the UK.

If you have been unfortunate to suffer such an accident or incident on your Jet2 holiday then please contact Accident Claims now to gain the best legal representation to win the compensation you deserve for your injury/illness and inconvenience.

Accidents or Food Poisoning At Your Jet2 Holiday Hotel

As well as accidents; holiday makers can also suffer food poisoning due to food hygiene standards not met or breached by hotel staff. This could include food being used that is out of date or spoiled, salads washed in untreated tap water or ice cubes offered in drinks that are made from water unsuitable to drink etc. Food poisoning can be mild but in some cases can pose a very serious risk to health especially if a guest already has underlying health conditions. Apart from the risk to health, food poisoning also causes great inconvenience and can ruin the enjoyment of a holiday that is meant to be relaxing and enjoyable time.

Is There Any Evidence Which I Should Collect?

If you were unfortunate to be severely ill or injured on a Jet2 Holiday then it is important to seek medical advice/assistance as soon as possible; not only for your wellbeing but to also provide a record for any eligible claim.

In addition; Accident Claims advises clients wherever possible to;

  1. Take Photographs

Having a record of visual evidence can help Accident Claims to fight your claim successfully on your behalf. This could include photographs of the injury received and/or photographs of the hazard that caused the injury etc.

  1. Complain to a Jet2 Representative

If you have received an injury or suffered from illness/sickness that was not your fault on your Jet2 Package holiday then it is important to tell a Jet2 tour operator as soon as possible and ensure that the incident is accurately recorded and that you receive a copy of this record as this will form part of the evidence Accident Claims compile for your claim.

  1. Seek Medical Assistance

As previously advised it is important to seek medical advice/assistance.

You can attend the accident and emergency department of the nearest hospital or visit a GP for minor injuries/illness if required depending on your injury type. The doctor or health professional you see usually writes a report of your visit detailing the injury/illness, any treatment, advice and length of time it may take to recover etc. This will be used as evidence in estimating the amount of compensation you could be entitled to and so it is important that you receive a copy of this report.

  1. Keep receipts

It is important to keep receipts for any costs/charges incurred as a result of your injury or sickness. This could transport costs, medical costs (including prescriptions), time taken off work etc. These will also be used as supporting evidence in estimating the amount of compensation you are entitled to.

What Type Of Costs Can You Recover In A Personal Injury Claim?

The type of costs able to be claimed usually falls into the following categories:-

General Damages

Medical Expenses

Travel Costs

Care Claim

Loss of Earnings

General Damages will form the central part to your compensation and will be a monetary award that determines the extent of your injury/sickness and suffering.

Medical Expenses will include being compensated for the cost of medical treatment and any associated expenses.

Travel costs will consist of compensation awarded for any travel expenses incurred associated with your injury/illness.

Care claim can include compensation awarded to a friend/loved one that helped care for you during your injury/illness. Loss of Earnings may include compensation for time taken off work due to your injury/sickness as well as calculating any future time that may need to be taken.
