Train accident abroad claim

It is an unfortunate reality that many people have accidents while they are on holiday abroad. Some personal injury claims can occur as a result of an accident during transportation, requiring a train accident abroad claim. Getting the best help and advice is the best thing to do in this kind of situation, and that is why at Accident Advice Helpline we offer free legal advice in order to help our clients to understand their rights while travelling abroad.

Know your rights

If the person is abroad as part of a UK-based tour operator holiday package then the case can be pursued with the backing of UK laws, if it is also the case that the accident was the fault of the travel agent or any overseas representatives of the travel agency.

It may be that the holidaymaker has arranged their own holiday; in this case, even with insurance the person is subject to the laws of the country that they are travelling in. This scenario can cause some confusion and distress for the holidaymaker, and that is why our expert lawyers are trained and experienced in all aspects of UK and overseas law, in order to provide the best help and advice for our clients.

If a person has suffered injury as a result of a train accident abroad and wishes to pursue a personal injury compensation claim, then there must be an identifiable party who is to blame for the accident. In some countries it is absolutely necessary that the person report their injury to medical professionals in order to receive the evidence that is supplied with the medical report. If someone else is to blame then it is also advisable to phone the police, and remember to keep all resulting paperwork from the incident.

It can be overwhelming to go through a traumatic experience such as a train accident, and contacting Accident Advice Helpline will take some of the pressure of the technicalities of making a claim for an accident abroad away from the victim of the accident and into the hands of our expert solicitors.

Stay on track

Accidents on trains are not just limited to collisions. It may be that a person has suffered burns as a result of scalding coffee being spilled on them, or poor driving skills may mean that a person is flung forward in their seat, resulting in whiplash injuries. There is the possibility of psychological trauma – it may be that the incident leaves a person too scared to use trains. In this case counselling is required, and at Accident Advice Helpline we can help a person to recover the costs incurred by this type of treatment.

Getting the best help is the most important thing for a person who has been through an accident aboard a train while they are overseas. Our 24-hour helpline operates 7 days a week on 0800 689 0500 and our friendly and helpful staff are on hand to provide the best help and advice for sufferers of train accidents abroad.
