When you book a day excursion through a tour operator, whether it is to a place of scenic interest, a boat tour, a theatre trip or a visit to a site of historic significance, you are entrusting the company with some responsibility for your health and welfare – as such those who sustain injury as a result of holiday accidents on arranged day excursions may be entitled to claim compensation for any pain, suffering, lost earnings, and medical expenses incurred as a result of any provable breach of the operator's duty of care.
If you believe that you have grounds for claiming compensation from a tour operator whose actions have caused you injury, call Seth Lovis & Co personal injury solicitors today on 0808 252 0678.
Arranged day excursions in the UK
There are many types of arranged day excursions available in the UK, such as visiting a National Trust or English Heritage site or going on a shopping excursion, theatre tour, or mystery trip.
However, all UK-based arranged day excursions require careful organisation and operators must have liability insurance in place to provide cover in the event that a person under their care sustains personal injury, whether in a slip, trip or fall, road accident, or incident of food poisoning.
Arranged day excursions abroad
Holidaying abroad can be exciting and enlightening. However, it can also be stressful and confusing. One benefit of an arranged day excursion is that it takes the stress and confusion out of travel abroad, allowing you to relax safe in the knowledge that a specialist has taken care of the many aspects of safety, planning, and logistics.
The specialist local knowledge of your tour operator should ensure that your day trip is mishap-free. As such, in the event that you sustain injury in a holiday accident on an arranged day excursion, you should be able to claim compensation for your injury provided you can prove that the operator owed you a duty of care, neglected this duty of care, and caused you significant pain and injury.
Claim compensation for an accident sustained on a day trip
When we book pre-arranged day excursions, we are entitled to expect that our health and safety will be safeguarded. It is, after all, one of the reasons we book such an excursion – we place our trust in the operator to protect us with professional standard of care.
In the event that you have sustained injury in an accident on an arranged day excursion, whether at home or abroad, you may be able to claim compensation for pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment and any lost earnings or medical expenses.
