If you have been involved in an accident abroad and it was caused by someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to claim compensation in the same way that you can in the UK. There are however differences in how you approach making a claim that requires the assistance of expert solicitors who understand the process.
Whether you’ve been injured after a fall, or because of a car crash, understanding who you should be making a claim against is crucial.
If you were working abroad at the time of the accident, you may be entitled to make a claim against your employer if they are based in the UK or have a registered office in the UK.
If you were on holiday at the time of the accident, and you booked your holiday through a UK travel agent, there are many circumstances in which you can make a claim against your tour operator.
Accident situations vary, and you may be struggling to work out what you need to do, however our solicitors will guide you through the process every step of the way.
Examples of accident abroad claims
- Road traffic accidents involving foreign drivers
- Food poisoning whilst on holiday or travelling
- Slip by the side of a pool
- Accident involving a water sport whilst abroad
- Deaths whilst abroad
