Accidents abroad

Holiday accident compensation claims

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer an injury whilst on holiday, it can spoil the whole experience. However, if the accident you were involved in was someone else’s fault, be it the holiday company or the places you stayed in or visited, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.

When can you claim?

There are many ways in which you could find yourself involved in an accident abroad that is not your fault. Road traffic accidents are a risk wherever you are in the world, but if you were not at fault then it may be possible to make a claim.

Cruise ship illnesses are a relatively common case that personal injury solicitors deal with, while claims can also be made for food poisoning or accidents on excursions, in your accommodation or anywhere at the hotel or resort you are staying in.

Of course, when an accident happens outside the UK it can make obtaining personal injury compensation difficult, as the law may change depending on the country the incident occurred in. It can also be hard to gather the required evidence for a successful holiday accident claim if you were injured many miles from home.
