When you’re on holiday, the last thing you want is to suffer an injury. Unfortunately, accidents can happen even when you’re not far from home. If you are injured while on a staycation in the UK, you may be entitled to compensation.

Making a personal injury claim can be a daunting process, particularly if you are not familiar with how making a personal injury claim works. However, with the right support, it is possible to navigate the process and receive the compensation you deserve.


Here are the steps you need to take if you are injured on holiday in the UK and want to make a personal injury claim:


  1. Seek Medical Attention


The first and most important step is to seek medical attention. Your health and safety should always be your priority, so if you have been injured, seek medical help immediately. If your injuries are severe, call an ambulance or visit the nearest emergency doctor or hospital.


  1. Gather Evidence of your accident & any injuries


Once you have received medical attention, gather as much evidence as possible about the incident that caused your injury. This might include taking photos of the scene of the accident, gathering witness statements, and keeping any receipts or documents related to the incident. Plus, any evidence of the injuries that you sustained. This could include photos and any medical notes or assessments.


  1. Report the Incident


If the accident occurred on someone else’s property or as a result of someone else’s actions, report the incident to the relevant authority and or business. For example, if you were injured in a hotel, report the incident to the hotel management. If the accident occurred in a public place, report it to the local council.
