With summer around the corner, most of us are thinking about or planning our summer holiday. It’s easy to get lost in a daydream whilst pouring over images of beautiful villas, glittering seas and pearly white beaches.

Unfortunately that dream holiday can turn into a nightmare if you have had an accident abroad or become ill whilst being in a foreign country.

We strongly advise that you take out a travel insurance policy before going abroad.  In some parts of the European Union medical costs may be covered but in other parts of the world you could find yourself in several thousands of pounds worth of debt if you don’t have travel insurance in place.

Having an accident anywhere can be an overwhelming and frightening experience but in unfamiliar surroundings the anxiety of not knowing where to go or who to turn to can be equally distressing. You could be on holiday, working abroad or travelling abroad when an accident or illness occurs.

When you need to seek professional medical advice and have been left out of pocket by such expenses, then TLW Solicitors could help you claim for an accident abroad if the holiday was booked as part of a package deal through a travel agent in the UK. The accident would also need to be the fault of the travel agent or their representatives. Alternatively, if you were working abroad through an employer based in the UK we may be able to pursue a claim against your employer on your behalf.

The Personal Injury team at TLW Solicitors have a wealth of experience when it comes to holiday accident claims and if you’ve found yourself in a financial pickle from picking up a medical bill, our injury lawyers have helped hundreds of people reclaim costs and seek rehabilitation services from an injury or illness abroad that was no fault of their own.
