FAQs

  • Are there any exceptions to making an accident abroad claim?

    Read more

    When on holiday abroad you are ultimately entrusting your safety to the tour operator that you booked your holiday through. If you’ve suffered an accident or food poisoning in a hotel then the tour operator or hotel owners will be held responsible for your safety and well-being whilst staying with them. Accidents on flights are down to the airline or tour operator, and it's the latter who have a duty to ensure that you are safe for the duration of your trip abroad.

    If you have had an accident abroad related to your work then your employer will be responsible for your health and safety. They will have the appropriate insurance policies to cover the costs of any compensation claims but they have a duty of care to ensure the accident you’ve suffered doesn’t happen to anyone else.

    In most cases those responsible for causing a road traffic accident will be held liable for compensating the victim of the accident. However road traffic accidents abroad are slightly more complex than those in the UK depending on the country of the accident and whether you were in a car, coach or other vehicles. One of our fully qualified legal advisors will assess your accident for free to let you know just how much compensation you could claim for your road traffic accident abroad.

    Whether your accident was serious or minor, our expert accident abroad solicitors are here to help you.
