Making a claim for a road traffic collision abroad

Being involved in a road accident in the UK is stressful enough – but suffering an injury as a result of a collision while on holiday abroad can be traumatic for all involved.

Unfortunately, hundreds of holidaymakers every year are involved in road accidents. Whether they’ve been in a collision in a hire car or injured as a pedestrian crossing the street, these incidents can result in lengthy hospital stays, expensive treatment and even a loss of income on returning to the UK.

If you’ve been involved in a road accident while on holiday abroad, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation

European road accident claims

A recent change in EU laws means that UK solicitors can now make a claim for a European road accident through the English courts.

Although this change has helped simplify the claims process in some respects, in many road traffic accident claims, there can be conflicts of jurisdiction, and various legal issues to overcome which demand specialist legal expertise.  So if you have had a road accident through no fault of your own while on holiday abroad, you need to speak to Your Legal Friend.

Examples of road accidents abroad

  • Collisions between two or more vehicles on the road
  • Accidents involving coaches, taxis or other forms of private hire transportation
  • Injuries sustained on a moped, motorcycle or regular bicycle, as a result of someone else’s careless or reckless driving
  • Injuries sustained as a pedestrian as a result of someone else’s careless driving.

If you’ve been involved in any of the incidents above, get in touch with us as soon as possible. Many European countries have much shorter timeframes in which you’ll be able to make your claim, so it’s imperative that you talk to a specialist legal expert as soon as you can after the accident.
