Accidents Abroad

If you have been injured as a result of an accident that occurred on a package holiday or a self-booked holiday we may be able to assist you in claiming compensation. It is also possible for you to claim compensation for an injury that happened on an excursion or activity not booked through a tour operator. If you were working abroad at the time of the accident and the accident was the fault of your employer, you may be able to make a personal injury claim using a UK based Solicitor provided you were employed by a company based in the United Kingdom at the time or that employer has a registered office or place of business located in the UK. This claim would be dealt with in the same way as any other claim for an accident at work. Even if you are travelling by plane, ship or trains abroad and have not reached your destination, there may be legal remedies available.

To assist with and to strengthen your case, we would advise you to report the accident to your travel representative/employer at the time, ensure your accident is recorded in the accident book, take details of any witnesses to the accident and if possible take photographs of the area where the accident happened. You must also keep safely all of the travel documentation, receipts and paperwork including medical letters, receipts for treatment, hospital discharge letters or any other documentation relating to or arising from the holiday and injury.

Now is the time to take the first step towards claiming appropriate compensation – getting you what you deserve. Speak to us today on 0800 389 1978 to find out how we can help. Our office doors are open should you wish to stop by to discuss your claim, or you can even get in touch with us using our online form.
