    Backpacking accident claim


    If you want to make a backpacking accident claim, then you need to be sure that you go to the right place. Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm that handles only personal injury claims and therefore has the expertise and experience that you need to help you to get the justice you need. With almost 15 years’ experience in the field, we have developed a strong reputation for getting results, which is what you need on your side if you have been hurt while travelling the world.

    Backpacking sounds like a very exciting thing to do, and in many ways it is. The opportunity to experience new cultures, see the sights, pick up a foreign language or two and simply relax is often too good to be missed. However, what many backpackers do not realise is that the world is filled with dangers, and some of these can be easily avoided without ruining the enjoyment of the trip. If you want to see the sights, for example, opt where possible for organised trips. This means that you are always with other people and that there is somebody in charge of making sure that you are safe. However, this does not always happen, and sometimes people get hurt.

    Can I really make a claim?

    If you have been part of an organised trip while backpacking and you were injured during it, then you may be in a position to make a claim. What if your injury meant that you had to cancel the rest of your trip? What if you had to pay hospital fees? These things should not have happened, and there is no reason why you should not put in a backpacking accident claim for compensation.

    Recovery time, even from a sprained ankle, can take a while. If it affects your daily life, then you should be aware that you might have grounds to make a claim. To be sure, you need to pick up the phone and speak to one of the advisors at Accident Advice Helpline. Our team will only take a moment or two to gather the information needed to determine if we could pursue a claim on your behalf.

    What if I have no money to take legal action?

    You don’t need it! Accident Advice Helpline prides itself on offering no-win, no-fee services, so even if you do not have a lot of money in the bank, you can take legal action. This is important because it means that you can start your claim as soon as possible after the accident has happened, and you do not have to wait until your bank balance looks healthy to appoint a solicitor. We have a team of personal injury solicitors who deal with cases similar to yours every day. Even if you think that your injury is trivial, talk to us today, or check out our website for more information. If you want to make a personal injury claim, you need to give yourself the best chance of success, and that comes with the services that we provide.
