You may have suffered an injury on holiday or travelling for work and may now be wondering, ‘Can I claim for a travel accident?’ Modern day travel is typically very safe, at least compared to the previous eras, but this does not mean all risk has been eliminated. Unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time, even in highly-regulated spaces like airports, many roads or other travel routes. Of course, you could also have been travelling in a somewhat less safe part of the world, where many of the health and safety regulations we can take for granted are habitually flouted or even non-existent.
If your travel accident happened in the last three years and was caused by someone else, you could be able to raise a financial claim for compensation. This is where Accident Advice Helpline could be of help.
Accident Advice Helpline: What we do
Accident Advice Helpline was set up in 2000 to help people who were injured through no fault of their own to raise financial claims for compensation on a no win, no fee* basis. Over the years, we have represented thousands of people all over the United Kingdom. Our specialist solicitors are highly skilled and trained to guide you through the legal process. We endeavour to give you the best legal advice that suits your individual case.
What you can do to strengthen your potential claim
You can strengthen your potential claim for financial compensation by documenting as much as you know about your travel accident. It would help if you keep or trace down all of your receipts and other booking documentation relating to your trip, particularly any insurance documents and other financial material. Also, when you speak with one of our friendly advisors, he or she will ask you if you were travelling alone or as part of a group. This may help you if you need witness statements. If you were travelling on your own, other people you did not know beforehand may also be able to give witness statements, providing they had a good view of your accident and are willing to speak on your behalf.

You can try our free online claim calculator to see what your financial claim for compensation could be worth. Go online and simply answer a short series of questions; the calculator will then state what your claim could be worth.
The benefits of claiming compensation
As a result of your travel accident, you may have suffered serious physical or psychological injuries. You may have had to take time off work, or even have had to resign, which may seriously threaten your financial independence. You may be facing significant medical expenses, including travel to and from hospitals or other medical centres. In fact, claiming financial compensation can help you pay towards any additional expenses you would not have had without your travel accident. Check your rights and your potential claim by contacting Accident Advice Helpline today, on 0800 689 0500 and let us help you answer the question, ‘Can I claim for a travel accident?’
