Overseas and Travel Claims

As more people travel abroad, inevitably legal disputes spanning different countries are becoming increasingly common.

In some circumstances a compensation claim could be pursued through the Courts in England and Wales if the person has been injured or suffered an illness abroad.

Examples of typical claims that arise whilst abroad include:

  • Accidents or illness on holiday
  • Accidents whilst working
  • Accidents on ships
  • Accidents on aircraft
  • Road Traffic accidents
  • Sports injuries

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. The team are experienced in dealing with these types of claim and would be happy to answer any questions or queries.

The team has extensive experience of defending international claims, ranging from defending drivers involved in Road Traffic Accidents within the European Union to dealing with claims made by holiday makers.

We are active members of PEOPIL (Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers).
