    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Injury overseas


    If you have suffered an accident or injury overseas then this is where it get’s complicated. You may still be able to claim compensation but there are many factors which need taking into account.

    The main one is that by UK law you have a right to compensation if you were hurt in an accident which wasn’t your fault, but laws in other countries differ and it would depend on the laws of the specific country that your accident occurred in, and also whether it was your fault or not, many overseas courts will try to look for ways to deter British holidaymakers from making a claim using things such as alcohol intake or sun exposure as reasons for your accident. For this reason it is vital to have witnesses whether in human form or CCTV evidence to back up your claims.

    It is important to always take out medical insurance when traveling overseas and this will mean that you can seek and receive medical treatment immediately, this will also help to build up a case for compensation.

    It is vital you seek information from a genuine UK no-obligation injury specialist, such as Accident Advice Helpline about your eligibility to claim. We can explore all avenues of your injury overseas and see if we can pinpoint how it happened and who could be to blame.

    If you booked your holiday through a travel operator in the UK and the hotel was the location your accident arose, maybe due to safety issues or unfinished building work, then we can assume your travel operator was negligent in not alerting you to issues with the hotel, or if you booked your flights with a UK airline and your injury happened during a flight we can assume this was due to failings with the airline and explore the options for obtaining compensation from them, there’s much red tape and many things we can look at for you and we do this on a strictly no-win, no-fee* basis meaning we require no money for our services, time and resources to build a case if that case is not won.
