Holiday Accident Claims
A holiday should be a time to relax and get away from it all. The last thing you want to worry about is the possibility of an accident, and how it might impact your life. But accidents can happen abroad, just as they do in this country. If you’re unfortunate enough to have been injured while abroad, and you believe that someone else may have been at fault, then you could be entitled to compensation.
What type of injuries can you claim for?
Whether it’s a road accident or food poisoning, illness or injury can ruin a holiday. It can be difficult and sometimes intimidating to try to plan your next move, especially when you’re faced with an unfamiliar legal or medical system and language barriers. However, no matter what kind of injury you suffer, if it can be shown to be the fault of someone else or the result of negligence, you are just as entitled to make a claim as you are if the accident happened in the UK. To make the process a little less daunting, the expert team at Injury Lawyers 4U are here to help you to deal with whatever situation may arise.
Our teams of legal experts can immediately take control of the situation, liaising on your behalf to gather evidence, collate medical reports and build a case that will ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. That may be initially just for the injuries, but you may also be able to claim for medical treatment (which can be very expensive abroad), inconvenience and even repatriation costs.
What to do in the case of an accident
Your first priority in the case of an accident or injury abroad should be to ensure the safety of yourself and the people you’re travelling with. Then it is important that you inform the local police, as well as your hotel and tour operator or airline, as they may be able to deal with the situation more adequately than you can alone and provide assistance if necessary. They will also be able to submit reports later on to validate your claim.
