What to do if you're in a car crash on holiday

Being involved in a car crash on holiday is an incredibly stressful experience and can leave you unsure of where to turn for help.

At Your Holiday Claims, we regularly help holidaymakers claim compensation after suffering injuries caused by a road traffic accident abroad and are on hand to help you.

If you were involved in any road traffic accident which involved transport organised by your tour operator, you can bring a claim for holiday accident compensation here in the UK.

In our latest article, our expert holiday accident solicitors take a look at what you should do if you’re in a car crash on holiday.

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.
