What Is A Personal Injury Claim Against Teletext Holidays?

When you book a package holiday through a UK tour operator, you are owed a duty of care by the business. This means that if conditions on your flight, at your holiday accommodation, in your rental car, or any other service booked through the tour operator are substandard and lead to you being involved in an accident, your tour operator could be held liable for any injuries or illness you suffered.

This means that Teletext Holidays could have liability for an accident on holiday you were involved in because you booked a package holiday through the company. Even if you were injured abroad, your claim will be handled by a UK-based personal injury solicitor because Teletext Holidays is a UK tour operator.

  • Broken railings on staircases that come away beneath a guests’s weigh
  • Uneven surfaces in the hotel’s gardens

Injuries During Pre-Booked Activities And Entertainment

This could mean that instructors for adventure sports activities are properly qualified, and that the correct equipment is used and that it is in good working order.
