Here at Recovery Assist we understand how easy it can be for road accidents to happen abroad, perhaps while you were on holiday or on business.
Driving on the wrong side of the road, in a vehicle and along roads and motorways you’re not familiar with can increase your chances of a road traffic accident.
Can I claim?
If you were involved in an accident while abroad on holiday and it wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Did you realise that action can be taken in English or Welsh courts for foreign accidents?
Imagine you were involved in an accident as a passenger whilst abroad with your husband/wife driving the car. European law says that you can either start your claim in the country where the accident occurred or in England or Wales.
If your road traffic accident happened in Europe, Recovery Assist Solicitors have the skills and European contacts to make sure your claim is dealt with as quickly as possible. We have experience of dealing with a number of road traffic accidents abroad including in Spain, France and Italy.
The European Union 4th and 5th Motor Insurance Directives require European insurers to appoint a UK handling agent to deal with your claim in English. Our specialist team of solicitors will try to deal with the claim in the English courts. However, sometimes it may be necessary to take action in the relevant foreign court.
