Thousands of Britons travel overseas every year. While most trips occur without incident, you may have cause to make a holiday accident claim.
Accident situations vary and you may be struggling to work out what you need to do. Our solicitors will guide you through the process every step of the way, giving you the best chance of claiming compensation for illness or injury sustained overseas.
For instance, if you suffer an injury on holiday, you might be entitled to make a claim against the holiday company if your trip was arranged as part of a package deal.
If you're involved in a road traffic accident abroad it may be possible to pursue damages against the offending driver in the UK, thanks to various European treaties.
