Can I Claim Compensation?
With Co-op Legal Services you can claim compensation for a holiday accident injury or illness if the injury or sickness occurred as a result of negligence or fault by another person, party or a business; and if the holiday was booked as a pre-arranged package holiday with at least two components such as transport and accommodation.
In many cases holiday accident and illness claims are brought against the tour operator in the UK. The Package Travel Regulations can be used to assist compensation claims against tour operators.
The Package Travel Regulations also apply to business travel arrangements and school trip packages. For holiday water sport injuries, skiing accidents and adventure holiday injuries please see details below.
Can I Claim on a No Win No Fee Basis?
We will be able to tell you if we can offer you a No Win No Fee agreement after a travel claims expert has reviewed the details of your case. Please get all the details together including any paperwork, photos and your holiday contract (if possible) and write down any questions you want to ask.
We will answer your questions and assess your claim free of charge. Please don’t concern yourself if you don’t have all the paperwork when you call us because we will still help you.
At Co-op Legal Services we want to ensure that you are properly looked after so we focus on you and your recovery as well as your claim.

Water Sports, Skiing Accidents & Adventure Holiday Claims
Claims for personal injury compensation can be brought against tour operators and/or specialist travel companies when acts of negligence or fault result in injuries, providing that the activity was pre-arranged as part of the package holiday.
So for example, if you were injured in a water sports accident on holiday that was caused by faulty equipment, and the water sports activity was pre-arranged as part of the package holiday, you can claim for compensation.
The Package Travel Regulations don’t cover everything that could go wrong on holiday and travel law does get complicated particularly when it comes to different treaties and legal jurisdictions. But we will be happy to answer your questions and tell you whether or not you have a claim.
"Package Travel Regulations" refers to the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.
