Accident Abroad

Trips abroad are meant to be a time of relaxation and enjoyment, unfortunately though accidents can and do sometimes happen.

If you have been affected by an accident abroad, we are here to provide you with assistance in making a claim.

At Smith Jones, we are accredited personal injury solicitors by The Law Society and since 1988, we have successfully represented many people who have suffered from accidents abroad.

On average, we secure compensation of over £11,500 for clients making a claim.2

To find out how we can assist you, call us now on 0800 195 95 90 to talk to one of our expert solicitors. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are ready to take your call.

Did your accident abroad occur whilst on a package holiday?

If the accident you suffered abroad occurred whilst on a package holiday, your tour operator will be bound by “The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992”. This means that they have a duty of care to deliver the highest level of safety to you and those that you are travelling with. The regulations are in place to ensure that if you do suffer an accident abroad, not only will you be able to claim compensation from your tour operator, but you will also be able to pursue your claim in the UK courts.

We are here to assist you

Whatever type of injury you or someone close to you have suffered we are to assist you and ensure that you receive the most appropriate compensation for the injuries sustained.

We are here to help whether your case involves a clear-cut claim for damages, or a complex claim that requires future care and rehabilitation arrangements. With any claim, we will also work to ensure the victim is not only fully compensated for any injuries sustained, but also for any other unexpected expenditure you have incurred as a result of the accident abroad.

Having dealt with accidents abroad for many years, our solicitors are incredibly knowledgeable about the complexities of dealing with this type of claim. Our team have previously had success in recovering compensation for injuries sustained in countries including France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and Tanzania.

Common types of accidents that occur abroad

Unfortunately, we very often find ourselves coming across accidents that occur abroad that are very similar in nature. The most common types of accidents abroad that we deal with, include:
