How can I make an Accident Abroad claim?
The most important aspect of making an Accident Abroad claim is the gathering of evidence as you need to be able to prove that another person was responsible for your personal injury, which in the case of an accident abroad this would normally be your travel agent or your employer.
To help your Accident Abroad claim, you should report the accident to your employer or your travel representative at the time, make a note of your accident, take names and addresses of witnesses to the accident and if possible take photographs of the area where the accident happened. You must also keep all of the travel documentation, receipts and paperwork including medical letters, receipts for treatment, hospital discharge letters or any other documentation relating to or arising from the holiday and injury. It’s better to take these notes straight away, as it’s hard to return to take photos and gather information at a later date.
The recent changes in UK and European law mean that it has become much easier to make accident abroad claims so get in touch today and our team of expert personal injury solicitors will help you get deserved compensation.
