Our client sustained personal injuries whilst on holiday in the Caribbean. On the second last day of his holiday when in his hotel room he slipped and fell on some water on the floor caused by a leaking pipe in the ceiling. He completed the Accident Report Book and attended with the on site nurse where first aid was administered and he was found to have sustained an injury to his leg. As the client’s holiday fell within the definition of a Package Holiday under Regulation 2 of the Package Travel Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 we advised our client that his losses could be recovered against the UK Tour Operator. We obtained medical evidence in relation to his injuries and he was found to have sustained a soft tissue injury to his leg which impacted on his hobby of attending the gym. After receiving no response to our letter of claim we issued proceedings against the Tour Operator and took the matter to hearing. After not engaging with us during the course of the case on the morning of trial the Tour Operator eventually admitted liability for our clients injuries and his case settled in the sum of £6250 plus costs.
