Accidents which happen in foreign countries can leave you with lots of problems, the least of which is that your holiday is over! Pursuing legal claims abroad can be expensive and complicated, and you need to make sure you get all the information you need before deciding on the next steps to take to claim compensation. Whatever your circumstances, our Wakefield team of specialist personal injury solicitors** will examine your situation and advise you about how to proceed.

Claims For Accidents Outside The UK

You may have travel insurance in place, but it may only cover smaller claims and you will need to pay excess costs. You may or may not be able to recoup some or all of these costs, if you can demonstrate that your injury or accident was not your fault. If you need to take a case for personal injury compensation against a company or organisation abroad, our solicitors** Wakefield will be able to advise you.

It is very important that you keep careful records of anything related to your claim. Your lawyer will be able to advise you on what you will need, but in general, any medical documentation or bills that are related to the incident will be important, as will witness testimony.

For road traffic accidents which occur in mainland Europe, you may have been given a European Accident Statement to fill in. Make sure you only sign the EAS if you are sure that you are completely clear about what you are signing. You may well need to deal with the local police, particularly if you were driving a hire car when the incident occurred. It may be advisable to contact your local British embassy or consul who can help you, and you can contact our solicitors** Wakefield for urgent legal advice connected to a personal injury claim abroad. When you get back to the UK, if you wish to make a personal injury claim, you can arrange to meet with one of our specialist legal team at our Wakefield offices who will help you get the best possible outcome for you and your family.
