Making a claim for an accident or illness in Cape Verde

The ten-island archipelago of Cape Verde is attracting more holidaymakers than ever before, thanks in large part to its incredible climate, its breath-taking scenery and the wonderful hospitality extended by locals. The islands of Cape Verde are situated close to the equator, which means they enjoy wonderful weather all-year-round, and with everything from craggy peaks on Santo Antao, to the beautiful sand dunes on Boa Vista and Sal, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in Cape Verde.

Unfortunately, for some holidaymakers on a dream trip to these islands, their idyllic getaway can quickly turn sour as a result of an injury, accident or sudden illness. The stress of trying to overcome language barriers to seek medical treatment and the threat of costly upfront medical bills can be an incredibly traumatic experience for families just trying to enjoy their holiday.

If you’ve been involved in an accident abroad, or suffered a sudden illness while holidaying in Cape Verde, we could help you make a compensation claim to bring the responsible party to account. Whether you’ve slipped or tripped in your hotel, been diagnosed with acute food poisoning after sampling local cuisine, or had an accident in the airport on arrival, we could help you bring a claim and pursue the  compensation you deserve.

Your questions... answered

What are some common accidents that can occur on holiday in Cape Verde?

  • Slip or trips around the hotel
  • Slipping accidents caused by spillages in hotel restaurants
  • Swimming pool accidents due to loose and broken tiles or poor signage

Many of the tourists visiting Cape Verde stay in the sort of majestic resorts that have enormous marble lobbies, smooth tiles floors and lots of slippery areas outside around the pool. We’ve pursued many compensation claims for clients that have experienced a trip or slip through no fault of their own while on holiday in Cape Verde.

What are some common travel bugs that you can encounter in Cape Verde?

Many of the holiday compensation claims we’ve pursued have been as a result of travel bugs. Food poisoning and other illnesses from undercooked or contaminated food can cause real stress for tourists, who often have to spend days recovering in their hotel room rather than enjoying their holiday.

Pool areas can also be breeding grounds for harmful bacteria, which can cause illnesses including typhoid, norovirus and amoebic dysentery. These can become incredibly serious, and could even result in a tourist cutting their holiday short to seek treatment at home.

Can I claim for something that happened during excursions, airport transfers or an airport accident?

Many people believe that you can only make a personal injury claim if the accident occurred in the hotel you’re staying in. This isn’t true – whether you sustained an injury when you stepped off the plane, during a coach trip or at some point during your airport transfer, you could still be able to make a claim against whoever was at fault.
