Many Irish people travel abroad each year without travel insurance cover so if you sustain an injury in your hotel from a slip, trip or fall or get food poisoning you may need to claim compensation against the Hotel and/or their insurers for your losses. Our travel litigation solicitors will be able to help you make this claim.
Who can I claim against?
If you booked your holiday through a travel agent, you may be entitled to sue the tour operator you booked the package holiday with for failing to provide you with safe and secure accommodation during the course of your holiday.
You may also be entitled to take a claim against the Hotel themselves or directly against their insurers for their negligence. In many European countries injured people have a direct right of action against the Hotels insurance company and we can help you with this process.
How will we help you?
Once you contact us we will immediately commence investigations and will consult with our European network of travel experts to determine where the fault for your accident lies. We will also get your medical records and any medical reports that are necessary. Once we have completed our investigation we will advise you as to whether you will be able to bring a successful claim and the potential value of your claim.
For more information on your legal rights to claim compensation after suffering an injury in a hotel or any type of accommodation abroad please contact Liam Moloney Solicitor today at 045 – 898000 or simply email the firm at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you wish to furnish us with brief details of how your accident occurred, please feel free to complete and return to us the attached Instructions Form. Holiday-Accident-Fact-Sheet.pdf and we will call you immediately to discuss your case.
Will I be able to take my case in Ireland?
In some cases, the value of your claim will be limited to the compensation that would be payable in the country where your accident occurred even though you may be able to pursue the case itself in Ireland. The rules in relation to litigation in Europe can be complex but we have many years’ experience in handling these cases for clients injured abroad and will ensure you get the best professional advice so that you can decide whether to proceed with your claim or not.
