Being in an accident abroad can be terrifying, especially if you don’t know the language. Foreign hospitals can be disorientating places and if you haven’t taken out the right insurance, you might even find yourself having to pay medical expenses that are in no way your fault. There is also the fact to consider that your holiday is effectively ruined. All the happy memories you would have had to share with your friends and family for years to come will be clouded by this one, unfortunate incident. Therefore, don’t you think you deserve some compensation?
Just making a quick call to Accident Advice Helpline can really make all the difference. One of our advisers can place you with one of our expert lawyers (all of whom have been trained to specialise in personal injury claims) who will help guide you through your claim in a non-judgemental fashion.
Who’s to blame for my injury?
If you booked your holiday through a travel agency then the onus will fall on them, which means that you won’t need to make a claim directly against the hotel. This is also the case if the injury takes place whilst on an excursion or activity arranged by the hotel or travel company, so if your injury happened (for example) on a jet skiing excursion at the local water park, Accident Advice Helpline should be able to help with your personal injury claim.
I’ve suffered an injury abroad. Can I claim?
Thousands of people suffer injuries abroad every year whether they are working abroad or are just on a family holiday. Accidents can range from trips by the pool to more serious accidents such as injuries sustained whilst on an excursion, sporting injuries or injuries sustained as a result of faulty equipment in the hotel. Whatever the cause of your accident, if it wasn’t your fault, we can help you. If you have been seriously injured whilst on holiday abroad, you might also have returned home in no fit state to work. If this is the case we will be able to help build your personal injury compensation claim so that you are compensated not only for the pain inflicted upon you, but for any loss of income that you have suffered as a result of your injury.
