    What are the most common injuries that occur abroad?


    Suffering an injury when on holiday abroad can do more than just ruin your dream getaway. An injury abroad can leave long-lasting emotional and physical scars. Hopefully you can avoid some of the most common injuries that occur abroad by remaining alert and taking adequate precautions.

    Road traffic accidents

    Road traffic collisions can occur at any place and at any time. The risk of being involved in a road traffic accident increases when travelling abroad, especially if you are renting a car or driving abroad in your own car. Being unfamiliar with local traffic laws or accident black spots seriously increases your risk of being involved in a car accident.

    Slips, trips & falls

    Slips, trips & falls are the single most common accidents that can occur both abroad and at home in the UK. Slipping or tripping is the single biggest cause of personal injury claims and one which we at Accident Advice Helpline are more than familiar with. Ensure you wear proper footwear with adequate grip to prevent the chances of slipping or tripping, especially in wet areas such as around the pool at your hotel if there is one.

    Food poisoning

    Trying out new cuisine can be a culinary delight which tantalises the senses. Unfortunately, many people complain of having contracted food poisoning when abroad, usually as the result of a dish that hasn’t been correctly prepared or tainted produce used when cooking. If online reviews are available, these may be a handy guide when choosing somewhere to eat when abroad.

    Allergic reactions

    It’s important to bring any allergy medication with you when travelling abroad. Any change in the local flora and fauna or even changes in the atmosphere could trigger a severe allergic reaction which may require medical attention.
