Steps to take if you have an accident abroad
Every year the expert solicitors at Your Holiday Claims are contacted by holidaymakers seeking compensation after an accident abroad. Here we take a look at what you can do to help support your claim after an accident on holiday abroad.
- Seek medical attention
Firstly, your health is always the most important thing after suffering injuries caused by an accident abroad.
You should ask for a copy of your medical report and keep any receipts for the medical treatment you received.
By bringing an accident abroad claim with Your Holiday Claims, you can receive compensation for any costs you have incurred as a result of your accident.
- Report the accident as soon as possible
If your accident occurred during a trip provided by your tour operator or within the grounds of a package holiday hotel, your tour operator could be liable for any injuries you have sustained.
You should report the accident to your tour operator representative as soon as you can. If your tour operator does not provide you with a copy of the report you should request one.
Reporting the accident will ensure that there is a record of what happened and will support any claim you bring on your return home.
- Gather as much evidence as you can
As with any accident claim, the more evidence you can gather about what happened the more chance you will have of receiving the compensation you deserve.
If possible, take photographs of what caused the accident and get the names and addresses of any witnesses.
If there were witnesses to the accident, ask if they would be willing to provide a statement to support your claim.
