Should you hire a professional when claiming holiday accident compensation?

If you’ve had a road traffic accident, a slip, trip or fall or become ill while travelling abroad, you may be eligible for travel accident compensation. If you want to make a claim for compensation, it is possible to hire a professional legal firm to handle the case for you.

Can I make a holiday accident compensation claim?

Before you decide whether or not you need or want professional help, it is a good idea to work out if you have a case in the first place. Thousands of people have accidents abroad every year, but not all of them have a case for holiday accident compensation.

Generally speaking, you should be able to claim compensation if you sustained injuries or became ill as a result of an accident or incident that was not your fault; it is important that you are able to prove that your illness or injuries were not caused by personal negligence.

What should I do if I’ve had an accident abroad?

If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident or transportation accident overseas, you have slipped or tripped abroad or become ill through no fault of your own, make sure you get as much information about the incident as possible while you are still in the country.

Take photographs, get the contact details of any witnesses and guests who have had the same experience and see a doctor; it is important that you have the evidence to back up your case, as this will increase the chances of a successful claim.
