Find out more about your legal right to accident abroad compensation

To help you discover whether you could be entitled to make a successful claim for an accident abroad, our specialist solicitors have provided some frequently asked questions.

Can I make a claim even if I did not have travel insurance?

You may still be able to make a claim for compensation regardless of whether you had travel insurance at the time of the accident. If you have been involved in a package holiday accident that has occurred as a result of negligence by a third party, you could still have grounds to make a successful claim for compensation.

Does my holiday have to booked as part of a package?

Yes, in order to make a claim for holiday accident compensation your holiday will need to have been booked as part of a package.

When you travel on a package holiday, you are protected by the Package Travel Regulations 1992. These regulations allow you make a claim against your tour operator right here in the UK if you have suffered injuries caused by accident that wasn’t your fault either at the hotel or during any transport and excursions organised by your tour operator. Here at YourHolidayClaims, we have a wealth of experience helping people successfully receive holiday accident compensation from tour operators including:

  • TUI (formerly Thomson Holidays)
  • Thomas Cook
  • First Choice
  • Airtours
  • British Airways
  • EasyJet
  • Kuoni

How long do I have to make a claim for an accident abroad?

You are entitled to pursue a holiday accident claim within three years of the accident date. However, we encourage all of our clients to proceed with their claim as soon after the accident as possible, when the details of the accident or injury are still fresh in their minds. As with most personal injury cases, proving liability is vital in any holiday accident claim, so obtaining sufficient evidence is vital to support your claim. In most cases, this is much easier soon after the accident.

Medical evidence, including receipts of any prescription drugs or treatment from your GP and details of any other medical professionals visited in relation to your injury will help to build a strong case. Witness statements and video or photographic evidence can also aid your solicitor in proving negligence.

Are there any costs involved in making an accident abroad claim?

At Your Holiday Claims, our experienced team holiday claims specialists represent all clients on a no win no fee basis. No win no fee entitles you to make a claim for compensation without the risk of being left out of pocket in the unlikely event that your claim is unsuccessful.

We recommend that all of our clients take out After the Event Insurance (ATE) for their benefit and protection. This insurance is only payable if your claim is successful. If your claim is unsuccessful, you wont have to pay a penny to anyone.
