What’s My Claim Worth can assist you in pursuing your claim for compensation for personal injuries if you have been involved in an accident outside of England and Wales.
If you were involved in a road traffic accident which occurred in the European Union or in any of the countries in the European Economic Area (Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein) we may be able to assist you in pursuing your claim.
There are a number of EU directives that deal with road traffic accidents in one European country where the parties involved are from another country.
If you have been injured in an accident on a package holiday, you may be able to pursue a claim against the tour operator under the Package Travel, Package Holiday and Package Tour Regulations 1992, if the accident has occurred as a result of a failure to properly provide any aspect of the holiday package you have booked.
In order to bring a claim under these regulations the holiday needs to be a ‘package’, with two out of three components from transport, accommodation and any excursion or significant activity being booked with the same supplier at the same time.
If your claim arises from a road traffic accident occurring in the EU or EEA, or has happened on a package holiday you are usually able to bring a claim in this country rather than having to claim through the legal system of the country where the accident occurred.
If your foreign accident has occurred in any other way, you may still be able to pursue a claim, depending upon the circumstances of your accident.
