Package Holiday Operators responsible for safety in the hotels they provide as part of the package

In August 2015, our professional photographer client and his wife were booked on a package holiday with Virgin Holidays to Las Vegas.

As with package tours, the holiday included flights to Las Vegas and accommodation at the Excalibur Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.

Our client and his wife arrived at their room in the early hours of the morning after travelling. As our client walked around the bed for the first time, he caught his foot against a metal bar sticking out from the bed .This bar was not visible as it was concealed by the bed covering. This caused our client to fall forward sustaining personal injuries. He was later diagnosed with a rotator cuff injury, and aggravation of pre-existing ME and Fibromyalgia conditions. Court proceedings had to be issued and our experienced serious injury team were able to put forward a strong case to Virgin Holidays on the basis of their vicarious liability for the American hotel that had been provided as part of their package. This eventually led to a negotiated settlement of over £125,000 but not until after our team had compiled detailed evidence of the injuries our client had suffered and the implications these would have upon his work. Also, the financial losses incurred as a result of these injuries and his period of recovery.

With complex injuries, establishing blame is only the first stage. Ensuring the correct medical evidence is obtained to document injuries and their long term implications is an essential next step to ensure accident victims are fully compensated and receive the correct damages.
