    Can I claim compensation for a RTA abroad?

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have plenty of experience in helping clients who have been injured in road traffic accidents to secure compensation. Of course, not all accidents happen on these shores. Road traffic accidents can happen to people anywhere, including those who are out of the country on holiday, or are away on business. We can help those people as well, as it is possible to claim compensation for a RTA abroad.

    We devote a lot of our resources towards helping people who have suffered a mishap through no fault of their own while out of the country. Typically, this may have happened when involved in holiday activities such as skiing. Personal injury can also be suffered abroad in road traffic accidents. If you have the misfortune to become involved in a RTA overseas, you can still claim for compensation when you return home.

    Even when a road traffic accident happens in this country you are well advised to seek legal help when making a claim. That advice is even more crucial if an accident happens abroad because then you have additional stress, such as language barriers. Our skilled and experienced solicitors and staff will be able to assist you no matter which country the accident happened. In short, we will be able to spare you much of the stress of making a claim for compensation.

    Our aim will be to try and secure for you the amount of compensation you are entitled to following your RTA abroad. There are many factors which can affect the size of your claim, and this will be absolutely vital, especially if your mishap leads to financial hardship.

    Your personal injury may lead to time off work and loss of earnings. The amount of money lost can form part of your claim, so it is highly recommended that you retain any wage slips and get a letter from your employer confirming how much time you were away from work recovering.

    The injuries that result from your road traffic accident while out of the country will no doubt result in additional medical costs. Few countries have a health service that is free at the point of use, such as ours, and there may be costs that have to be paid while receiving treatment in the country where the accident happened. Once back in the UK you may also have to pay out for prescribed medication. All these additional costs will be included in your claim for compensation.

    One factor that may deter people who are unfortunate enough to have been the victim of a RTA abroad is the fear of having to pay heavy legal costs. You need have no such fears when we are representing you. Our legal representation, which includes all the expertise we have to offer, is in effect free. This is because we represent our clients on a no win no fee basis.

    If you lose your claim for compensation you will owe us nothing.
