With global travel becoming increasingly cheaper and most businesses taking more of multinational approach, more and more people are sent abroad by their employer. Unfortunately some people are injured in accidents or suffer illness as a result of their employment whilst abroad.
If you are employed in England and Wales and injured, as a result of negligence on the part of your employer or another one of their employees, whilst abroad in connection with that employment you could be able to pursue a claim in England and Wales.
Private international law governing claims such as this is extremely complex and it is therefore important that specialist legal advice is obtained.
In the past our lawyers have acted for numerous employees injured whilst working abroad, including claims against the Armed Forces and engineering companies.
Our solicitors appreciate that being injured in a foreign country can be extremely traumatic and will look to try and help you through any claim you may have. If you have suffered such an injury then the specialist team at Trethowans LLP would be happy to discuss any potential claim on a no obligation basis.
