We all know how stressful a road traffic accident (RTA) can be but when you are involved in one overseas the experience is even worse. Whether you are working or on holiday, a RTA will certainly ruin your trip and you may find yourself with severe physical injuries and psychological trauma.
Many people struggle to adapt to different ways in which roads are used in foreign countries and their chances of being involved in an accident are significantly higher as a result. Alternatively, you may have been a passenger in vehicle, taking a coach tour or getting a taxi for example.
The law surrounding overseas RTA compensation claims is complex but fortunately, you do not need to take legal action in the country in which the accident took place. The EU has established motoring insurance directives which protect those travelling within the EU. Under these rules, insurance companies operating within the EU are asked to provide a UK handling agent who can conduct the claims process in English and set a claims timetable.
An expert personal injury solicitor will be able to quickly determine whether or not you are eligible to claim accident compensation and set about recovering the damages you deserve.
