Holiday Accidents

Holidays should be relaxing and fun. Sadly holidays can be ruined by accidents or illness caused by the negligence of others. For example:

  • Accidents at hotels
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Skiing accidents
  • Food poisoning on a cruise ship or at a hotel
  • Road accidents abroad
  • Water sports accidents

We can offer advice on possible personal injury claims arising from such accidents / illnesses.

Faulty Goods

When you buy something you expect it to work and certainly you don't expect it to cause you injury. Unfortunately people are sometimes injured as a result of defective products. For example:

  • A child injured by a defective toy
  • Somebody thrown from a defective bike
  • A chemical burn injury caused by an unsafe product
  • Illness caused by food poisoning
  • Injury caused by faulty exercise equipment
  • Skin damage caused by unsafe cosmetics

We can offer advice on possible personal injury claims arising from such accidents or illnesses.

Injuries Caused by Animals

We are a nation of animal lovers, but animals can cause personal injury on some occasions where the owners should have had them under proper control.  Employers can also be liable for personal injury caused by animals in some situations.  For example we have experience of dealing with:

  • Injuries caused by animals to people carrying out their work eg visitors to private premises, such as postmen and health workers/nurses
  • Horse riding accidents
  • Injuries caused by animals roaming free on public land
  • Injuries caused by animals who have escaped from private land

We can offer advice on possible personal injury claims arising from such situations.
