Accident Abroad

In the 21st century so many of us are working and travelling abroad exploring the world we live, accidents do happen. When accidents occur abroad, all sorts of issues can arise, such as language barriers, foreign legal systems and difficulty in obtaining proof. Claims 4U always recommends that in case of an accident abroad, make sure you take photographic evidence and gather all other important documents of your complaint, so that on your return to the UK, we can help you start your claim for compensation. Also write down notes of how the accident happened, sketch the scene

if appropriate, take a not of name and numbers of witnesses. Its better to take notes straightaway.

Holiday tour operators, hotel staff and every company you encounter whilst on your holiday or on your travels have a duty of care to provide you with a safe service. Hotels have to provide a hygienic and a clean environment, tour operators have to ensure that you’re going to be safe, in your local hotel and while travelling to and from the airport.

Remember that holiday accidents don’t just include accidents in a hotel, but cover injuries on boats, cruises, in a airplane travelling in cars or rental vehicles etc. The cause of a holiday accident could include:

  • Road accidents
  • Water sport accidents
  • Wet flooring or misplaced objects causing a slip or trip accident
  • Food poisoning from the hotel restaurant/buffet
  • Illness resulting from bad hotel hygiene
