If you’ve been hurt on holiday, take action and make a claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. We can help you make accident claims in Stockton-on-Tees.
Even if you were injured abroad, you can still utilise UK-based personal injury solicitors to recover the maximum amount possible in remuneration. We take a look at some common questions regarding overseas personal injury claims, and answer questions so that you can get the information you need to make accident claims in Stockton-on-Tees.
How do I know if I can make a claim?
You can make a claim if you have been injured in an accident for which you were in no way at fault. For example, if you slipped on an unsigned wet floor in your hotel lobby, you can make a claim for the injuries you may have sustained in the fall.
How long do I have to make a compensation claim?
Your accident must have taken place within the past three years in order for you to be eligible to make a claim. It is best to seek legal advice right away, as you should be able to provide as much detail and supporting information to your lawyer as possible to better the chances of a successful payout.
How much does it cost to make accident claims in Stockton-on-Tees?
Accident Advice Helpline works on a conditional payment policy known as no-win, no-fee*. This means there is nothing payable upfront to start a claim, so you don’t have to part with a deposit when starting work with a lawyer.
How much will I receive in compensation?
You can make a claim for the injury itself, as well as any other costs it may have caused, such as cancellation of travel plans, bookings and the price of medical treatment. If you have had to take time off work to recover, this could lead to a loss of earnings, for which you should also be compensated. We have a thirty-second claims calculator online that makes it simple to get a rough idea of what you could receive, but owing to the fact that some cases involving overseas injury can be tricky, you may want to have a discussion with one of our claims advisers.
How do I get started?
Because overseas injuries tend to be more complicated cases than those involving straightforward accidents in the UK, a solicitor will need to review the details of your accident in detail before deciding whether or not you have a case. To get connected to claims experts with experience handling accident claims in Stockton-on-Tees, contact Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
