Becoming injured while travelling can be a nightmare. Not only are the logistics of receiving medical assistance while travelling abroad much more difficult, due to potential costs, the language barriers, and the unfamiliar surroundings, but a travel injury can really ruin a holiday.
Being in an unknown environment can be disorientating and, unfortunately, travel injuries do often occur.
Have you experienced a travel injury?
If you have become injured while travelling you may be able to claim compensation. You can claim compensation on a huge range of travel injuries incurred, from a trip or fall, an injury due to medical negligence, or traffic accident. You can be compensated for any injury you have sustained while travelling by discussing the incident with a personal injury lawyer.
How to make a claim?

If you are unsure whether you are eligible to make a claim it’s possible to check by using the Accident Advice Helpline’s state-of-the-art online claims calculator. This 30-second test will let you know whether, and how much, you are able to claim.
What you can claim for
If you have suffered a travel injury you can claim for:
- Pain and suffering encountered
- Any financial loss as a result of your injury
- Any future loss of earnings or finance as a result of your injury
