    Can you claim for an overseas road traffic accident whilst on holiday?


    Do you need to claim for an overseas road traffic accident? Are you wondering if you’re actually able to take this step? If so, the answer is yes. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have years of experience when it comes to helping people claim for injuries that they sustained overseas, and we always do all we can to bring you the compensation that you deserve.

    What to do if you’ve been in an overseas road traffic accident whilst on holiday

    There are many reasons why you might have an overseas road traffic accident. Speed limits can be confusing, especially when you have to think about miles rather than kilometres. Non-English signposts can be a big cause of confusion, and you may be forced to drive on the other side of the road than the one you’re used to. The traffic laws abroad can also be confusing as they can differ greatly from the rules of UK roads. Although you will be expected to comply with the rules of the road abroad, if your accident was someone else’s fault and you did all you could to adhere to the regulations, you could be able to take legal action.

    Contact Accident Advice Helpline today if you have been in an overseas road accident that wasn’t your fault and you wish to make a claim. We have helped thousands of people who became injured abroad because of other people’s negligence or recklessness and we always aim for the maximum amount of compensation possible. This means we could be able to help you whether you’ve been hurt on the road, suffered from food poisoning or had a slip, trip or fall overseas, to give just a few examples. You will need to have received medical attention in the aftermath of your accident and you may need to undergo one more medical assessment before your claim can commence. You don’t need to give us any money to start your claim as we work on a no-win, no-fee basis.
