Holiday Accidents » Holiday accidents in the uk

\"\\\"With a great proportion of the increase in carbon emissions being blamed on cheap flights to the Mediterranean, its no wonder that a great number of people in the UK are choosing to holiday in Great Britain. However, no matter how confident and relaxed a Brit might feel on holiday in their home country, they are just as vulnerable to being involved in an unfortunate incident such as a car crash, which could require them to make a holiday accident claim.

According to the British Air Transport Association (www.bata.uk.com), flights only contribute to 5.5 % of carbon emissions, but this is still enough to influence a number of environmentally friendly holidaymakers who want to do their bit to help the Government cut emissions by 60% before 2050.

Favourite places to visit in England

Over the years, many of us have become accustomed to searching the internet for cheap flights to places such as Spain, France, and Portugal and a number of holiday accident claims have resulted from incidents overseas such as car crashes.

But now it seems that more and more people are searching online for UK holidays. This is reflected in the number of holiday accident claims no win, no fee solicitors have recently dealt with from British tourists travelling within the UK. According to www.enjoyengland.com these are the top 10 searches in January 2007 for places to visit:

  • North Yorkshire
  • London
  • Cumbria - The Lake District
  • Somerset
  • Cornwall
  • South West England
  • Kent
  • Devon
  • Essex
  • South East England

What preparations do you need to make?

First and foremost, if you are planning to drive to your chosen destination it is important to plan the route of your journey by using such websites as the AA (www.theaa.com) or the RAC (www.rac.co.uk). These sites will inform you of any busy traffic or possible roadworks and could reduced the risk of you needing to make a holiday accident claim for an incident that may have occurred whilst driving through an unfamiliar town or city.

Try to organise in advance such things as loading the car, packing lunchboxes and securing the house. Aim to leave 30 minutes before your planned journey time, as this will give you extra time to spend on any last minute forgotten things.

Arrange breakdown cover for your trip beforehand. If your breakdown during your journey in the UK, a quick call to a recovery operator will soon ease troubles and could reduce the chances of your car being hit at the side of the road by another vehicle. If you are involved in a car accident, make sure you take down the other drivers details as you will need them when making a road accident compensation claim for such personal injuries as whiplash.
