Holiday Claims

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.

So if you been unfortunate enough to have been involved in road traffic accident whilst abroad, whether you hired a car/moped/scooter or quad bike purely for pleasure or if you were driving for business, you may be entitled to road traffic accident compensation.

Ring us today on 0161 762 4949 to discuss your potential claim.  We will carry out a free no obligation assessment as soon as you contact us. And remember, we operate on a no win, no fee basis. Don’t delay, claim for your foreign road traffic accident today!

How can I protect myself?

If you are thinking of going abroad in the future, for a holiday or on a business trip, and you need to hire a car/moped or quad bike, we recommend that you take a look at the following information which has been provided by the AA (link to AA website here.)

Illness whilst abroad
