How to claim if you're injured on holiday

Accidental injury is the worst thing that can happen to you when you are abroad in an unfamiliar environment. Not only will you be far away from friends and family, you will have no access to your usual doctor or local hospital - and the challenges can continue to grow! As well as putting the dampener on the fun you have been having sipping fruity cocktails on the poolside garnished with cherries or listening to the waves repeatedly lap against the sand under a multi-coloured parasol, understanding how to make a holiday injury claim can be quite the challenge. It doesn't matter whether you have been involved in a car accident that was due to somebody else, injured skiing down the marked slopes of the Alps or have tripped, slipped or fallen to injury, you can make a claim.
