If you have suffered physical or psychological harm while travelling as a result of an accident or act of negligence that was not your fault, you have a legal right to hire a personal injury lawyer to help you to make a travel injury claim. The money you receive will undoubtedly be of great help to you and your family. However, it is also worth remembering that your claim could prevent other holidaymakers from suffering injuries similar to your own.
How to give your travel injury claims the best possible chance of success?
To make a successful travel accident claims you will need to have:
- Reported your accident to your tour rep or travel company
- Sought medical advice in the immediate aftermath of the accident that led to your injury
- Recorded the contact details of any witnesses to your accident
- Taken detailed photographs of the accident scene
- Retained receipts for out-of-pocket expenses as a direct result of your injury
If you have failed to carry out any of the above steps, do not worry. At Accident Advice Helpline, we appreciate that collecting evidence was likely to be the last thing on your mind following the shock of your accident. As a result, our friendly team of legally trained claims advisors and knowledgeable personal injury solicitors will do everything they can to help you to gather the evidence you did not manage to obtain at the time of your accident.
If, after reviewing your case, we believe you have a reasonable chance of success, we will hand your case over to our expert lawyers who will take care of all the paperwork and handle negotiations on your behalf. If your claim is successful, our legal experts will ensure that you walk away with two main types of compensation: general damages, for the pain and inconvenience associated with your injury, and special damages, for the financial losses and expenses incurred as a result of your injury. If you have sustained a severe injury, you will also receive compensation for the losses and expenses you are likely to incur in the future.
