Accident Abroad Claims
Having an accident abroad can be very stressful. Being somewhere unfamiliar when injured can make recovery even more difficult, particularly when you can’t rest and get better in the comfort of your own home. In some cases, an accident overseas is the fault of another person or party, and ultimately could have been prevented. We understand how frustrating this can feel. If someone caused you, or a family member, to have an injury on holiday, you may be entitled to compensation.
At Fletchers Serious Injury, our specialist travel litigation team deals exclusively with accidents abroad claims, wherever in the world they happen, so you can be assured we will bring the best legal minds to your case. We believe that everyone who has suffered from an accident abroad that wasn’t their fault should be able to get the justice that they deserve. This is why we always operate on a strictly no win, no fee agreement.
What is an accident abroad claim?
