Your lawyer when you’ve been injured abroad.
If you suffered a serious injury abroad, our team is here to provide you peace of mind.
Travel and foreign claims encompass a wide variety of accident and personal injury claims. You may have suffered an injury whilst overseas on holiday, working abroad, or whilst living, working and studying in the UK as a foreign national. With our specialism in severe and life-changing injuries, we will guide you through the claims process.
We have acted for:
- Individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury in a road traffic accident overseas;
- Individuals who suffered a serious injury whilst staying at a hotel or private accommodation abroad;
- Individuals seriously injured in an accident on an aeroplane or cruise ship.
- Employees working abroad on business and injured at work, or whilst travelling.
It may be possible to claim for accidents that occurred both within Europe, and internationally; across the United States, Asia, South America, the Middle East and Australia.
International personal injury claims can be brought when you return home, often in England & Wales. In some cases it may be appropriate to bring your claim overseas and we can advise you at the outset and ensure you are aware of your rights. We will explain how and where you can bring your claim and advise you on the differences between claims brought at home and abroad.
When you have been in an accident that wasn’t your fault, it may be that you have a claim for compensation. If this is the case, we’re here to help you understand the process, and the compensation you might get at the end of it.
Taking out travel insurance is not a requirement for you to bring a claim. We often help those injured abroad where they do not have a travel insurance policy and can offer ‘no win no fee’ agreements to individuals where appropriate.
If you do have travel insurance though, you may have encountered difficulties bringing a claim through your insurance policy. For example you may not have the correct level of cover, or may be unhappy with the service from your travel insurer’s recommended solicitors. We will be happy to discuss your options with you, without any obligation for you to proceed in instructing us.
Our specialist Personal Injury team has the necessary experience and connections with overseas lawyers, experts and translators to help guide you through the process. We also have foreign language speakers within the team and specialise in dealing with very serious and complex accidents, so you can be certain that your claim will be handled professionally and with sensitivity.
“We have been very happy with the service provided and would have no hesitation in recommending your company to friends/family”
The amount of compensation you might be able to claim will depend on your circumstances. Where you have an accident while on holiday it may be possible to recover some, if not all, of the cost of the trip and travel, as well as the loss of enjoyment you and your family experienced.
However we will always try to help you obtain interim payments where appropriate. This ensures you can pay for treatment, equipment and other items you may need to help your recovery while the claim is ongoing.
We can assess your claim on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis and review any insurance policies you may have which could assist with your legal expenses. We do not ask for any money up front and you will only have to pay if you are successful.
