Accident Claim Abroad

Have you suffered an accident and injury abroad?  Having a ruined holiday is bad enough, don’t add insult to injury, seek the injury compensation you deserve.

CALL 01270 747154 NOW.

Whether you are travelling abroad for work or on holiday, having an accident that was not your fault in a foreign country can be incredibly stressful and traumatic, especially when you don’t speak the language. Most often, you will simply just want to receive the medical treatment you need, and get home as quickly as possible without further complication.  In circumstances such as this, we recommend that you report the accident whilst still in the holiday destination, ensuring at least that the hotel/holiday company representatives are aware that you have had your accident abroad, and some accidents, like a road traffic accident, should be reported to the local police, to document your accident.  Further, if you attend a hospital or doctor’s surgery for treatment for your injuries, it is advisable to make a note of where you received that treatment, and keep hold of any documents the medical practitioner gives to you following your treatment.

Having suffered an accident abroad, you may well be considering making a compensation claim upon your return home. No need to worry; personal injury claim specialists, Richardsons & Co Solicitors Limited are on hand to support you through every step, including the letter of complaint that needs to be sent to your holiday tour operator within 28 days of returning to the UK.

Common accidents abroad that can occur on your holiday include:

If you have suffered from any of these accidents and it was not your fault, contact us today and find out if you might be eligible for injury compensation. The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations of 1992 allow you to claim personal injury compensation from the tour company who sold you a package holiday in English law for a breach of contract.  You must have purchased your holiday as a package, buying at least two items from the travel agent, such as your flights, transfers, holiday excursions and accommodation of at least one night to qualify.  With the advent of internet arranged travel, and the high degree of personal choice, splitting the purchasing package up, this area of law is becoming more complex.

If you have suffered an accident abroad and wish to pursue a personal injury compensation claim, it is important to speak to specialist personal injury solicitors who understand your concerns, as early as possible.  Accidents occurring on a plane or boat have a two year period in which you must claim, so do not delay, the earlier you seek compensation on your return, the better.
