Accidents Abroad Claims

More and more of us are embarking on international travel and while many enjoy problem-free holidays or periods of working abroad, unfortunately accidents do still happen.


If you have been injured in an accident while on holiday or travelling or working in a foreign country, you could be entitled to compensation. Fentons Solicitors has a specialist holiday accidents department experienced in handling accident abroad claims. Our holiday accidents solicitors can offer you all the help and advice you need to make a claim and ensure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.

Common accident abroad claims include:

  • Sustaining injuries from defective products
  • Slipping and tripping on hotel floors/around swimming pools
  • Being injured during organised excursions
  • Falling from balconies
  • Injuries sustained through sporting activities
  • Injuries caused by poor maintenance

Tour operators have a duty to ensure that their customers' accommodation is safe and that you are not unnecessarily exposed to the risk of injury while staying in a foreign country. Similarly whenever you are travelling abroad, the transport operator has the same duty to take steps to ensure your safety is not unduly compromised.

If you have been injured through no fault of your own, the holiday accident lawyers experts at Fentons can help you to make your claim for compensation. Depending on the circumstances of your injury, you may be able to bring your claim for compensation in this country or it may be necessary to pursue the claim in the country where your accident occurred. Our holiday accident solicitor’s specialists will determine this and provide you with the best advice, acting on your behalf whether your case proceeds in the UK or abroad.

We will liaise with members of our international network of experts to investigate the details of your case and the law as it applies in the country where you were injured. We will take the requirements of the foreign jurisdiction into account at every stage, to ensure your claim is dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In many cases, defendants can and often will make offer to settle your accident abroad claims at any time before or after the issuing of court proceedings. Our experts will use their knowledge and experience to consider each offer with you carefully.

If we take on your claim for compensation and can pursue it through the courts of England and Wales, we will offer you the benefit of our No Win No Fee scheme which provides a risk-free way to pursue compensation.

The time limits on when a holiday accident claim can be brought are different in every country throughout the world. If you have been injured in an accident abroad, it is vital that you seek expert legal advice as soon as possible.
