Everyone looks forward to a holiday where they can relax, soak up some sun and explore different cultures and locations. However, for too many people each year, their much longed-for holiday becomes little more than a nightmare. The reason for this is simple – accidents and injuries.
Unfortunately, accidents and injuries are extremely common amongst holidaymakers, and this isn’t all that surprising because we all tend to let our guard down when relaxing on holiday, and this can lead to all manner of accidents.
If you are unlucky enough to be injured whilst on holiday, claiming compensation for an accident abroad is something that you may want to look into, and our team of personal injury advisers, here at Accident Advice Helpline, may be able to help you with this.
Claiming compensation for an accident abroad
Claiming compensation for an accident abroad is pretty simple if you enlist the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, like the ones here at Accident Advice Helpline, but first you will need to establish whether you are eligible to make a claim.
In order to make a personal injury claim, you need to have been injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another party. Not only that, but you will also need to have visited a medical professional in relation to the injuries you sustained, and you will need to start your claim within three years of having been in an accident.
If you meet these simple criteria, there is a good chance that you will be able to successfully make a claim.
