Accident Abroad Claims
Have you had an accident abroad? Whether it happened while you were on holiday or attending to business you may be eligible for compensation. Around the world, in most countries certain laws are in place on the basis of which you can legally make a claim for compensation if you have been in an accident in that country. It may be easier to make a claim if you have booked your holiday with a travel agent instead of getting into legal complications with the hotel owner abroad.

Suffering from an accident abroad can be much more stressful for an individual compared to being at home, as the surroundings may be unfamiliar, as well as the language. It is also likely that you won’t be fully aware of the medical and legal processes in place in a foreign country. The most common types of accidents that people have while abroad are slips and trips within the hotel premises, accidents while doing sports, road accidents while driving a hired car, food poisoning or accidents that take place during planned tourist tours.
