If you were involved in a road traffic accident in Europe and it wasn’t your fault - or even if it was partly your fault - you could be able to make a claim for accidents abroad compensation.
It’s also possible to bring the claim in the English courts, which is usually much more straightforward than going through a foreign legal system.
Your claim will be governed by the law of the country where the accident happened - which will include how long after the accident you are able to make the claim. This can be less than a year, so it’s really important to get in touch with a solicitor as soon as you can following the incident.
For all accidents after 11 January 2009, the foreign law will govern the assessment of your damages, which can often require expert evidence from a foreign lawyer. The team of specialists here at Lanyon Bowdler are highly experienced at dealing with these kinds of cases and have first-rate contacts with expert lawyers across the world.
This guide offers some helpful tips on what to do in the event you have been injured or suffered illness whilst abroad.
