What to do following a car accident abroad
Get the medical attention you need
If you’ve been unfortunate to have been involved in a car crash abroad, the most important thing is your health.
If you have suffered any injuries you should seek medical attention as soon as you can. At Your Holiday Claims, we would recommend asking for a copy of a medical report and keeping receipts for any medical attention you have paid for.
Take photographs where possible
If it is possible to do so, take photographs of the scene of the accident and any injuries you have sustained during the crash.
If there were any witnesses to the car crash, speak to them and ask if they would be willing to provide a statement to support any holiday accident claim you might want to bring.
As with any road traffic accident, the more evidence you can gather about what happen, the stronger your case will be.
Report the accident as quickly as possible
If the car crash took place during transport arranged by your tour operator, you should report the crash to your tour operator.
By making a report you can ensure that the accident is recorded to help support any claim you bring on your return to the UK.
