Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have an excellent record of winning compensation for coach passenger accident abroad claims. Coach accidents can have a devastating effect. If you are the victim of such an accident, you could be entitled to claim compensation for any of the injuries you sustain and loss of income incurred while recuperating.
Basis of the claim
Public transport operators, wherever they may be in the world, are responsible for the safety of anyone travelling in their vehicles. Passengers have little control or protection when on a coach and are therefore considered innocent victims of road traffic accidents.
If you have been involved in a coach accident abroad that was caused by the carelessness or negligence of the coach driver or company, you can claim compensation. In order to do this, you must prove that the actions of the driver led to the accident.
This is where Accident Advice Helpline come in. We are experts at what we do and will investigate the case on your behalf, acting in your best interest throughout the process. We have a dedicated team of experienced solicitors in the UK who will work with our agents overseas to pursue the case and ensure you receive the maximum compensation possible.
Where can you make the claim?
If your coach accident occurred in an EU country, we are able to pursue the case through the UK legal system. Where this is not possible, we will work with our worldwide network of agents to pursue the claim for you. It is important to note that the country in which the claim is heard will determine the level of damages and compensation you receive. The laws and regulations affecting the cost and funding of a claim also vary from one country to another. All of these variables will have an effect on the outcome of the case.
We will give you the best advice on all of the relevant options available for your case. Additionally, we will ensure that your claim is pursued in the location where you can expect the best outcome.
Time limit for making the claim
Coach passenger accident abroad claims are subject to different time limits, depending on the country. The time limit for making a compensation claim in the UK is three years from the date of the accident. However, other countries might have a shorter or longer time limit. It is in your best interests to contact our team here at Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible in order to begin the process of filing your claim.
