We can help you to make a claim if you have been injured while on a package holiday in Sweden Accident Claims. We recommend that before travelling, you make a note of the emergency contact number for your travel company. If you have been injured on a package trip,
it is important to call the tour operator in question at the earliest opportunity to report what has happened. When it comes to package holiday claims, the relevant legislation is known as Package Travel, Package Holidays, and Package Tours Regulations 1992 Accident Claims.
In order for your holiday to be deemed a package holiday, you must have booked at least two of the following in the one deal:
- Accommodation (overnight or 24 hours+)
- Other tour services, for example, excursions
A lot of people assume that making a claim for something that has happened on a package holiday is going to be difficult. However, it is more straightforward because even if you have been injured on a Swedish coach, for example, you will still make the claim through the UK tour operator if you booked transport as part of the deal. This makes it much more straightforward.
Accidents At A Hotel Accident Claims
In this part of the guide, we are going to take a look at the different sorts of claims that can be made. Firstly, let’s take a look at hotel accidents. From sports injuries to swimming pool accidents, these incidents vary in nature considerably.
You simply need to prove that the hotel is at fault for what has happened. For example, swimming pool accidents could occur because of lack of proper supervision or bad maintenance, and so you would be able to claim for this Accident Claims.
Other claims include injuries caused by broken furniture, faulty electrical fittings, and other problems with the condition and maintenance of your hotel room, as well as slips, trips, and falls, and accidents that have happened in the hotel gym because of poor supervision and poorly maintained exercise equipment.
You may also want to make a claim if you have had a spa or beauty treatment gone wrong. Food poisoning is another common injury, which we will discuss in the next section.
Have you sustained food poisoning while in Sweden? There is no denying that food poisoning is one of the most common illnesses experienced by Brits when they go abroad. There are many different ways that food poisoning could be contracted.
This includes eating food that has been left out as part of a buffet for too long, food that has not been stored at the right temperature, food that has been reheated and served, as well as undercooked food. In most cases, food poisoning is not serious and people make a full recovery within a matter of days.
Nevertheless, there have been life-threatening cases as well. It is also worth pointing out that we can help you to claim if you have had an allergic reaction because food allergens have not been correctly labelled.
Falls, Slips And Trips Accident Claims
We can also help you to make a claim if you have had a slip, trip, or fall. There is no denying that slips and falls are very common. These accidents can happen in so many different ways while on holiday. Here are a few examples:
- Missing a trip when you get on or off the plane (or any other mode of transport)
- Tripping on a torn carpet in the hotel
- Falling because of a pothole in the hotel car park
- Slipping on tiles in the pool area
- Falling down some stairs because the lighting in the area was not sufficient
- Slipping on a dirty or wet floor
Water Sport And Boating Accident Claims
Whilst the water is cold, people do participate in water sports and boating activities, some of which could be dangerous. Whenever booking activities like this, you need to choose a reputable provider and make sure they are covered by your Swedish holiday insurance policy.
If the equipment has not been maintained properly or a member of staff has made an error or did not have the right experience in order to be in charge of a boat or water activities, you can make a claim.
One of the main reasons why people go on holiday to Sweden is to enjoy a ski trip. If you have had a Swedish skiing accident, we can help you to launch a successful claim. Of course, skiing is an activity that can be described as dangerous and you certainly cannot claim if you have injured yourself out of sheer clumsiness or trying to do too much on the slopes.
However, you can claim if someone else is to blame for your accident, for example, because you were not given the correct training or supervision or because the ski equipment you hired had not been maintained properly.
Have you been involved in an accident whilst travelling via bus or coach? Perhaps you were injured while driving a hire car? If so, you could be entitled to compensation, and Accident Claims UK is here to make sure you get the full amount you deserve.
It goes without saying that car accidents happen on a daily basis in Sweden. While most are minor, there have been some severe and fatal incidents too. In Sweden, the number of road traffic fatalities totalled 253 in 2017. This represents a decrease from the year before, when there were 270 fatalities.
No matter the scenario, we can help you to get the compensation you deserve if you have been involved in a car crash in Sweden. We can also assist with other types of road accidents abroad in Sweden. When travelling via public transport or using a tour operator’s coach, it is the responsibility of the company in question to guarantee that you arrive at your destination safely.
If you have been injured because of their error or negligence, you will be entitled to compensation. Moreover, let’s say you have been hurt because of another driver’s error, you could also be entitled to compensation. Yet, you will be claiming against the insurer of the perpetrator, not the bus or coach company. This is not something for you to worry about, though, as we will be able to determine who to claim against and how to go about it.
