    "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."

    Have you been hurt while driving abroad?

    As many people choose to holiday in remote areas or smaller towns and villages, the public transport available may not cater for all their needs. If people are unfamiliar with the local public transport or would prefer to use their own transport, they will often hire a car or vehicle while they are abroad.

    While many drivers can do so abroad using only their British driving licence, driving on unfamiliar roads can be difficult. When people holiday in countries in which locals drive on the opposite side of the road, they can find it hard to get used to the change and it may put them more at risk of injury.

    Unfortunately, there have been reports of people simply forgetting to drive on the correct side of the road whilst abroad, or pulling out onto the wrong side of a carriageway which can obviously cause an accident if other vehicles are around.

    Could I claim with an injury solicitor in Manston?

    In theory, an injury solicitor in Manston could help you to make a claim for compensation if you’re hurt while you’re driving either in the UK or abroad. However, in order to be eligible to make a claim with help from an injury solicitor in Manston, you’ll need to show that the incident which caused your injuries wasn’t your fault, and that you were hurt because of someone or something else.

    If you can do this, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to make a compensation claim, and an injury solicitor in Manston could help you to successfully obtain compensation for your injuries. Don’t forget that if you were travelling with passengers in the vehicle and they were also injured, they too could make claims with help from an injury solicitor in Manston.

    Depending on the type of injuries you’ve sustained, you may be able to remain abroad and make the most of your holiday. If you’ve suffered very serious injuries, however, then you may prefer to return home as soon as possible in order to obtain more medical treatment.

    If you do decide to complete your holiday as best you can, this doesn’t mean that you’ll miss out on your chance to make a compensation claim with an injury solicitor in Manston. As a solicitor will often be able to assist claimants for up to three years after their injury occurred, you’ll normally have plenty of time in which to make your claim.
