Holiday Accidents/Accidents Abroad

If you have an accident abroad I can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Holidays and trips abroad are great - except when things go wrong and you are injured in an accident. Your holiday or business trip can be ruined and you could have injuries that impact upon your daily life long after you return to this country.

What are the most common holiday accidents? 

Here's a list of just a few types of accidents that happen on a trip:

  • Accidents on a cruise ship
  • Accidents on board an aircraft
  • Accidents in an airport
  • Road traffic accidents
  • Accidents in a hotel
  • Food poisoning
  • Accidents on excursions or organised trips

Claiming compensation for holiday accidents

Just because your accident happens abroad doesn't mean you can't claim compensation. The law is there to protect you and you don't usually have to use lawyers in another country to bring your claim as most claims can now be brought in the UK even if your accident happened abroad.

If your holiday was a package holiday then in many cases your tour operator is responsible for your accident. If you have an accident on a cruise ship the Athens Convention can be used to bring a claim against the tour company. The Montreal Convention can be used to bring a claim against an airline for accidents on an aircraft. All these claims can be brought in the UK courts.

If you've had an accident on an airplane, a cruise ship or abroad then you should take steps to see if you have a claim straight away as you may only have 2 years from the date of the accident to issue court action.
