Whether you are at home or abroad, sustaining an injury in an accident can ruin a good holiday. Where there is evidence of negligence by the holiday home in which you are staying, or their agents through whom you reserved the accommodation, you may be entitled to make a holiday home injury compensation claim.
You first consideration however has to be for your health. Even if you receive medical attention for your injuries overseas, you should still see your family GP on your return. Your doctor will include the injury sustained in your holiday home on your medical notes, and these will be used to support your holiday home injury compensation claim.
Most people, when they are away on holiday, take a camera with them. You should use this, or the camera on your mobile phone, to record the causes of your injury – for example poorly maintained furnishings or damaged stairways. These too will also strengthen your claim for holiday home injury compensation.
Making a Holiday Home Injury Compensation Claim
Making a holiday home injury compensation claim can be a complex procedure – especially if your accident happened abroad. Getting the negligent party to admit liability in your holiday home injury claim can be difficult, and this is why it is always in your best interests to use the services of a specialist personal injury claims solicitor.
A solicitor will be able to advise you on how to proceed with your application to the Injuries Board Ireland for holiday home injury compensation – not solely for the injury you, or a family member experienced, but also to include any additional travel costs or medical expenses you incurred while away on holiday.
Should your injuries require ongoing medical treatment, this too should be integrated into your claim for holiday home injury compensation, as well as any loss of earnings you may have suffered if you have been unable to resume working due to your injuries on your return from holiday.

Therefore, we will listen considerately as you tell us how your holiday home accident occurred, what injuries you sustained and how they were treated. We also need to know what impact they have made to your quality of life since your return – i.e. if you are able to work.
We will also need to know how your holiday home was booked, as this is one of the key elements which will determine whether you have a claim for holiday home injury compensation which it is worth your while to pursue.
You are of course welcome to ask any legal questions you may have in respect of a claim for holiday home injury compensation, and we will answer them for you, and provide additional advice in clear English.
To ensure that you have understood the advice we have offered, before we conclude each initial conversation, we summarise what we have discussed and provide you with a selections of options for your considerations based on how we have interpreted your personal situation.
You are under no obligation to act on any of our suggestions, and many clients have found it useful to reflect on our discussion or talk their options over with family and friends before proceeding with a holiday home injury compensation claim.
However, you should not delay your initial call to our free holiday home injury claim advice service on 1800 911 940 any longer than is possible. You have two years from the date you sustained the injury in which to make a claim for holiday home injury compensation and, as it is important that the strongest possible case is compiled, in some cases much of this time might be necessary.
