Jordans Solicitors Expert Support and Legal Advice on Accidents on Holiday
Falling ill or having an accident in a foreign country can be an awful time. Inability to properly communicate through a language barrier and, the potential costs of treatment in a foreign country all add to the stress and worry it can cause. In certain circumstances, you may be able to claim from the tour operator where your injury or illness is due to the negligence of staff at your resort. This is a complex area of law but here at Jordans, we are experts in making claims against tour operators in these circumstances. We can advise and assist you through the minefield of making a claim as a result of injuries or illness suffered abroad.
Limitation periods for accidents abroad, depending on the circumstances, can involve shorter limitation periods than the standard 3 years allowed for accidents in England and Wales so, it is important that if you wish to seek legal advice about an accident or illness abroad that you do so promptly.
Frequently Asked Questions
It is important to remember that personal injury claims are subject to a limitation period. In most cases the limitation period will run for 3 years from the date of accident however, for accidents which occur outside of England and Wales the timescales can be much shorter therefore it is essential, as soon as you feel able, to contact expert lawyers who can advise you on the prospects of you making such a claim.
