First Choice Holiday Accident Claims Advice
First Choice Holidays, the champion of the all-inclusive holiday sends thousands of holidaymakers abroad each year to Spain, Turkey, Egypt, Mexico and many other countries. However, every year a large number of First Choice customers suffer from accidents on holiday and are injured through no fault of their own.
Holidaymakers are often injured whilst on cruises, aircrafts, transfers and in hotels which are sold as part of a First Choice all inclusive holiday. Many seek advice from leading travel lawyers, Simpson Millar, on the prospect of claiming compensation for their personal injuries.
Compensation Claims and Your Legal Rights
Your First Choice holiday is protected by Regulation 15 of The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations.
First Choice is liable to you if it or one of its suppliers of service fails to exercise reasonable care in performance of the holiday contract, irrespective of whether such services are provided by airlines, hotels, cruise ship operators etc.
If you suffer a personal injury on a First Choice holiday because the services fell below the applicable standard of care in the destination where those services are delivered, the 1992 regulations enable you to claim compensation for your accident in the UK despite the fact it occurred abroad.
