    Forest fire abroad accident claim

    Forest fire abroad accident claim

    While natural occurrences such as lightning strikes can cause forest fires, a large number of these incidents occur due to human error and carelessness. There have been numerous cases of wildfires caused by problems with utility equipment, including faulty power lines. We have also heard of instances where controlled burns got out of hand, building to raging infernos that threatened the safety and property of people living nearby. Human carelessness, for example tossing lit cigarette butts or neglecting burning camp fires, has also contributed to massive fire devastation.

    Other than extensive property damage, forest fires can also result in personal injury and death. If you have suffered injury as a result of a forest fire abroad, then you might have valid grounds for making a compensation claim.

    Making the claim

    Making a compensation claim for an accident abroad can be a tricky affair. That is why you need a dedicated team of personal injury solicitors with the requisite experience and skills to win the claim for you. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have amassed more than a decade’s worth of experience in fighting accident and injury cases and we have what it takes to help you win the compensation you deserve.

    We also understand that you have just been through a traumatic period because of your forest fire abroad accident and making a compensation claim might be the last thing on your mind. However, the amount you receive as payout can help you recoup the financial losses you incurred. You can receive compensation for the cost of medication and treatment, cost of care as well as loss of income if you had to take time off work. This money can help you remain on your feet and assist you in rebuilding your life.

    Accident abroad compensation claims can be complicated thanks to different legal systems and in some cases, a language barrier. At Accident Advice Helpline, we will provide you with relevant legal advice and we will shoulder the burden of the case, leaving you free to recuperate in peace. Our team of personal injury specialists will research the details of your claim, find the responsible party and argue the case on your behalf.
