Making a claim for an accident or illness in Iceland

Iceland has developed a reputation as one of the safest places in the world for tourists. There’s little risk of violence or crime, health and safety laws are robust, and the terror threat has remained low even in recent years.

Unfortunately for some tourists visiting Iceland, accidents can happen and illness can strike at any time. All it takes is a slip in a lobby, contaminated food, or an accident on the roads, and a dream holiday to Iceland could be all but over.

If you’ve been involved in any kind of accident or suffered an illness while on holiday in Iceland, our expert solicitors could help you to claim the compensation that you deserve. We understand how stressful it can be to suffer an incident like this while you’re abroad, and we’ll do everything we can to support you in taking legal action once you arrive back in the UK.

Our team can offer straightforward, jargon-free advice, no matter what your illness or injury may be. We also offer a fantastic no-win, no-fee guarantee, which is ideal for those who may still be dealing with the financial repercussions of their accident or illness – medical bills, travel expenses or a prolonged loss of income, for example.

Call us today at Your Legal Friend today for a confidential chat about how we can take your claim further.

Your questions... answered

What are some of the most common illnesses and injuries that affect tourists in Iceland?

Food poisoning and travel bugs

Food poisoning from contaminated food is an almost ever-present threat on any holiday – and trips to Iceland are no different. Hotel buffets are a breeding ground for harmful bacteria, while unhygienic food handling practices and food that isn’t cooked properly can also present a real problem, leaving tourists confined to their hotel room when they should be soaking up the Icelandic culture.

Trips, slips and falls

Slips and trips can be harmless, resulting in nothing more than a bruised ego. However, in some cases, a trip can be the cause of a fracture, a broken bone or a severe muscle injury which could leave tourists facing a long recovery period. They may also be left with no source of income while they recover, which can be very stressful.

Sporting activities

The glaciers in two of Iceland’s national parks attract adrenaline-seekers from all over the globe, with ice climbing, hiking and snowmobiling on offer. However, if an instructor’s negligence or an equipment failure leads to an injury, you could be able to make a claim for compensation.
