Accident Abroad Claims

Have you been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault whilst abroad? Our personal injury solicitors can help you with your compensation claim.

If you have been injured whilst on holiday or abroad due to the negligence of a hotel, travel operator or even an individual, you could claim compensation. Our personal injury solicitors are highly experienced when it comes to international claims and will provide you with first-class legal advice and guidance on how to proceed.

What types of accident abroad claims can our personal injury solicitors help with?

Our personal injury lawyers and insurance litigation specialists have helped thousands of clients to acquire the compensation they’re due following an illness or accident suffered abroad. We cover a wide range of accident abroad claims, including but not limited to:

  • Accidents or illnesses on holiday
  • Accidents whilst working
  • Accidents on ships
  • Accidents on aircraft
  • Road traffic accidents
  • Package holiday claims
  • Sports injuries

In many cases, even though the accident itself may have occurred in a foreign country, it is still possible to bring a personal injury claim through the legal system in England and Wales (particularly if the accident occurred in the European Union).

We may also be able to act on your behalf if a claim is being pursued against you arising out of an incident abroad or travel, which is not covered by any insurance. We may also be able to assist you in respect of any cross border insurance issues which may have arisen, such as problems with your travel insurance cover.

Whatever the nature of your problem, cross border claims can raise complex legal issues and it is therefore important to seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible.
