Can I claim compensation for a car accident abroad?

No one wants to be involved in a car accident but every year British holidaymakers are injured in road traffic accidents when travelling abroad.

This can be an incredibly distressing experience and those involved are often unsure where or who to turn to for help and advice.

Below the experienced accident abroad solicitors at YHC outline what type of claims we can help you receive compensation for and what you can do to support your case.

To receive instant support and guidance if you have suffered an injury after a car accident abroad, call 0330 100 2851 to speak with a member of the specialist YHC team.

What sort of road accidents can I claim for?

At YourHolidayClaims, our expert team of solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation if your suffered injuries whilst on transport provided by your tour operator.

This means that if you were injured on a transfer or whilst on an excursion provided as part of your package holiday and the injury occurred through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to compensation.

What do I need to make a car accident claim?

In order to support your case for an injury caused by a traffic accident, you should:

  • Seek medical attention and keep any medical notes
  • Keep receipts for any medical expenses
  • Report your accident to your tour operator as soon as possible
  • Take photographs of the accident scene and exchange contact details of any witnesses
  • Keep receipts for any out of pocket expenses you incur; this could include the cost of rescheduling flights home or lost earnings if you are unable to return to work immediately.

The above list is by no means exhaustive but the dedicated accident abroad team at YHC will be able to advise you further.

Is there a time limit to making a car accident abroad claim?

Yes – British package holidaymakers have 3 years in which to make a claim for car injury abroad compensation.

At YourHolidayClaims, we would always advise that you start your claim as soon as possible after the accident whilst events are still fresh in your mind.

Following my family becoming ill on holiday and my 2 year old daughter becoming particularly unwell, I contacted Anne at Your Holiday Claims from an internet search to see what I could do in regards to bringing this to my holiday company’s attention.

I would like to thank Tracy Stansfield for the work she has carried out for me and assisting me in getting justice against the tour operator.

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
