Accidents Abroad Claims

Have you been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault whilst abroad? Our accidents abroad lawyers can help you with your accidents abroad claims.

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 accidents abroad lawyers are highly experienced when it comes to international accidents abroad claims and will provide you with first-class legal advice and guidance on how to proceed.

What types of accidents abroad claims can our lawyers help with?

Our accidents abroad lawyers have helped thousands of clients to acquire the compensation they’re due following an illness or accidents suffered abroad. We cover a wide range of accidents 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 accidents 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 accidents 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.
