Can I claim for personal injury compensation for an accident abroad?
Accidents happen, no matter where we are in the world. Travel abroad is as popular as ever, and whether you are on a business trip, or holidaying with family, there are as many ways to be injured in a foreign country, as there is in the UK. In fact, when you think about it, there are probably more ways to be injured whilst in holiday, because we tend to be more adventurous; from hang gliding, and jet skiing to scuba diving and quad biking- we do far more on holiday than we do in the UK. If you have been injured abroad, and want to discuss making a no win no fee claim for personal injury compensation, then contact one of our friendly personal injury solicitors for a no obligation chat.
Can I claim compensation if I was on a package holiday?
If your holiday is booked through a UK travel operator, either online, or in the travel agents in town, and you booked your flights and accommodation at the same time, then the chances are you have booked a package holiday. If you have had an accident whilst on a package holiday, and your injury was caused as a result of defect in the hotel, such as glass in swimming pool, something you tripped over in the hotel grounds, or suffered injury as a result of a hotel employee’s negligence, then any claim for holiday injury compensation would be brought against the tour operator or UK-based travel agent you booked with. So if your personal injury claim related to some element of a package holiday, it would be just as easy to pursue a claim for personal injury abroad, as it would if you suffered an injury in a hotel or resort in the UK.
How much will my claim be worth?
If you instruct a firm in the UK to pursue the personal injury you sustained on holiday, then your claim for compensation will be valued just the same as it would if it happened here in the UK. All personal injuries are governed by the 15th Edition of the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines, and will vary depending on the nature of your injury, and how long your recovery period will be. If you instruct MG Legal’s holiday injury team in addition to making a claim for personal injury compensation, we will also help you claim for the loss of enjoyment of your holiday, any medical expenses, and any other out of pocket expenses, such as lost earnings, and the increase in your holiday insurance. MG Legal’s holiday injury solicitors accept all personal injury claims abroad, on a no win no fee basis.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If you suffered an injury on holiday in the UK, then you usually have a period of 3 years from the date you were injured, or the date upon which you became aware that somebody else’s negligence was the cause of your personal injury. However, there are lots of countries in the world, and they do have different times limits within which to pursue a claim for injury compensation. If your accident was in the UK, then you are safe in the knowledge that you have 3 years to claim. If you were injured whilst holidaying an a cruise ship, The Athens Convention has a time limit for which you can bring a claim. The time limit is normally two years from the date of disembarkation (getting off the ship). The Montreal Convention 1999 states that you have 2 years to make a claim for personal injury from the date you were injured on an aeroplane. If you were holidaying abroad, and want to make a personal injury claim, then the best advice we can give is to get in touch with our expert solicitors, and we will be able to advise you how long you have to make your claim before you are statute barred, and unable to pursue compensation.
How long does a holiday injury compensation claim take?
The time it takes our personal injury solicitors to settle a personal injury claim arising out of an accident on holiday, is generally the same as if the accident happened in the UK. If an admission of liability is forthcoming, then we would press ahead, with a view to obtaining medical evidence, and attempt to negotiate settlement at the first available opportunity.
