There are many different ways that an accident could happen while on holiday. Although Travel Republic is an online travel agent, because you can book package holidays through the company, you may be able to make a claim for compensation if you were injured during a holiday you booked through their service.
It could be that you were injured on a Travel Republic flight, or on the holiday itself. For example, you could have a holiday car accident abroad, or you could be involved in a swimming accident abroad at the hotel where you are staying. The key to personal injury claims against travelrepublic.co.uk is being able to prove that someone else is responsible for what happened to you and the injuries you sustained.
One thing that a lot of people might not realise is that there is a personal injury claims time limit in place, which applies to all personal injury claims, not just personal injury claims against travelrepublic.co.uk. The typical statutory time limit is three years which means that you could have 3 years from the date of the accident you were involved while on holiday to make a claim if exceptions don’t apply. However, it is critical to note that court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. As such, it is far better to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so that you don’t run out of time to file a claim against a third party.
Moreover, it is certainly not advisable to wait in order to make a claim. It is far wiser to do so as soon as you are able to. This is especially important when you consider that sometimes you have less than three years to seek compensation in some circumstances because it depends on the circumstances of what happened to you. If you give us a phone call, we would be able to shed further light on the time limit that could be applicable to your claim.
Moreover, it is worth noting that the circumstances do differ if a child is injured while on holiday. If this were to happen, the parent or the child;s guardian could make a claim on behalf of the youngster. The money would then be held in a fund until the child turns 18-years-old. However, parents could request to take some money out, going via the courts, if it is important. An example, for educational reasons. If you do not make a claim for your child, they would have the option to do so themselves when they turn 18 years of age. Nevertheless, it may well be better if you make a claim on your child’s behalf because the details are still likely to be fresh in everyone’s minds.
A lot of people might not make a travel claim because they don’t realise they could be entitled to compensation. This is usually because they may not know what constitutes as a ‘personal injury’ and what does not. The main point is that you or your lawyer must be able to prove that someone else was at fault for your suffering. With this said, there are many types of road traffic accidents that could lead to successful holiday injury claims, which includes the following:
- Passenger accidents – if you were in the vehicle that caused the accident, yet you were a passenger and not responsible for anything that occurred, you may be able to claim. This could involve anything from an airport transfer to a taxi accident
- Car crashes – car crashes may cause a lot of accidents on our roads which includes on foreign roads too
- Bus accidents – were you injured while travelling on a bus or a holiday coach? If so, you could be entitled to compensation
- Motorbike accidents – motorcyclists could be more prone to falling into other drivers’ blind spots and skidding. Because they are exposed to more elements, there is an increased chance of an accident
- Cycling accidents – cyclists are also one of the most vulnerable on the road
- Pedestrian accidents – pedestrians have the least protection, and so these types of road traffic accidents are often serious
When it comes to this type of personal injury claims against travelrepublic.co.uk, you would typically need to report the incident to the police. This is especially the case if there has been some sort of criminal activity involved, for example, a hit and run which could be the case if the scene of the accident is causing danger to oncoming traffic.
There are many reasons why you may be thinking about making a claim for an accident that happened in the hotel you were staying at. This is because there are so many different ways that hotel accidents and injuries could happen. For example, you may have been injured because of a problem with your hotel room. This could be negligence on the part of a cleaner because they left dangerous chemicals around, or it could be because of a broken piece of furniture in the hotel room that may have caused your injury.
Another way you could be injured is if the grounds of the hotel are not maintained, leading to a fall, trip or slip. Aside from this, you could suffer an injury or an illness if the hotel facilities are not correctly maintained. You could contract food poisoning if there is a hygiene or other problem in one of the restaurants. Moreover, you could end up getting very ill if a swimming pool has not been cleaned properly, and the pH level is not right.
You may also suffer an injury if the equipment in the gym is not maintained in good order, or you were the victim of a hotel spa treatment gone wrong. There are so many different ways hotel accidents and injuries could occur and providing you can prove that the incident you were involved in was not your fault, you may be able to claim compensation from the negligent third party.
You could also file a claim against travelrepublic.co.uk for food poisoning or an allergic reaction abroad. Food poisoning is pretty self-explanatory, but what about allergic reactions? If you consumed food and it contains one of the main 14 allergens, yet you were not made aware of this, you could have grounds to make a compensation claim if you suffered an allergic reaction.
