What else you might like to know about Accidents and Illness Abroad Claim

If you believe you deserve compensation for an accident suffered abroad, a legal service provider is well positioned to begin legal proceedings on your behalf. Here is some basic advice and guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.

What is the difference between making a claim for an accident abroad and making a claim for an accident at home?

There is no difference in practice when making a claim for an accident or illness abroad because the claims are usually made against tour operators with an office in this country. This means that you can instruct a legal service provider in this country to handle your no win no fee claim. It is important to take expert legal advice as soon as possible as claims of this type can sometimes be complex. 

What type of injuries and illnesses can I claim for?

You can claim for any illnesses or injuries that you suffered within the hotel you were staying at as part of a package holiday or injuries suffered on an excursion that was part of the holiday package. Food poisoning is a common illness which can affect many people on holiday and could be caused by a hotel’s poor hygiene standards. A legal service provider can provide you with expert advice about bringing these types of claims.

Who is liable for my holiday illness or injury?

The holiday provider or tour operator is liable for an accident or illness that is sustained on the hotel grounds or as part of any activity or excursion included in the holiday package. It is not possible, however, to claim against the tour operator for issues out of their control.

How much compensation will I receive?

This commonly asked question varies from case to case and it is not always possible to provide an accurate estimate until all of the information relating to a case is gathered. Once you have selected your preferred legal service provider, however, they may be able to give you an estimate based on the compensation typically awarded for similar cases.

How can I choose the best legal service provider?

 It is important to choose a legal representative well qualified to handle an accident at work claim on your behalf. You can find out more about the legal service providers suited to your case by reading their company biographies direct from the comparison table.

I did look at other sites in my search for a solicitor, but The Law Superstore was the only site that didn't want payment upfront.
