Have you been hurt whilst on holiday?
With most people spending months looking forward to their holidays, suffering an injury or becoming ill while you’re away can be very upsetting. Suffering an injury at home can be bad enough, but being hurt in a new place or unfamiliar destination can be even worse.
Although a language barrier can sometimes make it difficult to obtain medical treatment, there are often interpreters available to patients who have suffered injuries, and embassies around the world can assist people who have suffered serious injuries while abroad.
Although many people are aware that they could make a compensation claim for injuries suffered at home, often they aren’t sure if they can also make a claim when an injury occurs abroad. In actual fact, you can make a claim for injuries which have occurred anywhere, providing that the injuries you sustained weren’t your fault.
