    Can I claim for an accident I had while backpacking?


    It may be easier than you think to get a positive answer to this question, ‘Can I claim for an accident I had while backpacking?’ If somebody else was at fault and you were injured as a result, making a claim is something that you should definitely consider. After all, why should you suffer because another person has been negligent?

    When you are travelling, you might think that you are responsible for your health and safety, and in many ways you are. However, it is common for backpackers to go on trips and try out new activities; if these things are not properly organised or supervised, then it is easy for people to end up being hurt.

    What should I do?

    Obviously, your priority should be to concentrate on your recovery, but wouldn’t it help you to recover if you were able to relax knowing that we were taking care of the legal details?

    This is why you should call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as you can after the accident has happened. Just call our free, 24-hour helpline and provide the details of your accident. Finding out if you can make a personal injury claim will only take a couple of minutes.

    Make sure that you have all the details of your accident to hand. Once we have taken these details, we can assign your case to one of our personal injury solicitors if you decide to proceed. Accident Advice Helpline has been handling cases like yours for almost 15 years now, so you can be sure that you will get the right advice and the right results.

    What will happen?

    We hope that two things will happen. The first is that the problem that caused your accident will be resolved and that nobody else will be put in as similar position. It could be that the person responsible was not even aware that there was a problem before you made your claim and that he has been putting people at risk without even knowing it. Making your personal injury claim could lead to him putting the problem right.

    The second is that we hope that you will be awarded financial compensation. You might have had to spend time in hospital, or you may have had to change your plans for your trip. This would not have happened if the accident had not occurred, so why should you lose out because of it? Expenses that have been incurred as a result of the accident could be reimbursed to you, so make sure that you have all the details of these when you call us.

    Taking legal action in a case like this is a way of getting your life back to where it was before the accident. Accident Advice Helpline understands that it can be a stressful time, and we want to help you to get your life back on track. Talk to us today to find out more.
