Travel accidents can take many forms. You may have been involved in a car accident, you may have sustained a skiing or water sports injury, or contracted a disease whilst abroad.
It is also possible to make a travel accident compensation claim if you have hurt yourself whilst actually travelling to or within your destination country. You are eligible to claim travel accident compensation following transportation accidents on boats, buses, ferries, planes and trains. This is because their owners have a duty to keep them safe for you.
Claiming travel accident compensation
In addition, travellers are entitled to receive compensation regardless of where they are injured. There are special international conventions and laws designed to ensure that airlines and railway companies take responsibility for their passengers, and there are also provisions to cover accidents on boats or at sea.
It also doesn’t matter if your injury or illness happened on a package holiday or on a holiday you booked yourself. And if you were injured or became ill on holiday and have no travel insurance, don’t worry either.
Whatever the circumstance, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you.
