Holiday Injury / Injuries Abroad

Millions of people go abroad each year, either on holiday or to work. Unfortunately a percentage of these people suffer personal injury whilst they are away.

Injury abroad

Have you suffered a personal injury abroad whilst on holiday or working?

If you have suffered an injury abroad on a holiday organised by a tour operator, they are under a statutory duty to ensure that their customers are safe and are not exposed to bad hygiene, risk of injury, disease or infection.

This means you can pursue a claim for compensation against the tour operator through the Courts of England and Wales.

Accidents and illnesses can happen at any time, often through no fault of your own. If you’re injured or taken ill while holidaying or working overseas, our experienced team are here to provide specialist legal support.

Whether you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident; hurt either on a plane or a cruise; contracted a bacterial infection from poorly stored food or experienced negligent medical treatment in a foreign hospital — we have a dedicated team of lawyers who can help making accidents and illness claims for people travelling abroad.

Rogers & Norton are experienced in advising the victims of injury whilst abroad on their rights to pursue a personal injury claim where ever it occurs throughout the world.

We can advise on the options available to purse the claim. Ideally the claim will be against the tour operator in England & Wales. If it is appropriate, however we can proceed against the negligent party in a foreign country.


Examples of holiday claims can include:-

  • Injuries arising from the facilities at the Hotel
  • Injuries sustained on an excursion
  • Injuries suffered in road traffic accidents whilst abroad
  • Claims arising from poor standard of hygiene such as food poisoning or water pollution
  • Injuries sustained as a result of defects in the structure of a Hotel, such as slippery floors and risks of slips and trips.
