Compensation for Accidents Abroad
Trouble in Paradise – If you injure yourself abroad you may still be able to claim compensation
Going on holiday should be a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Unfortunately accidents do happen and being in another Country can mean that you are not only practically inconvenienced but financially inconvenienced as well. Not only will you have to deal with the usual pain and discomfort, you may be confused about how to seek help wherever you happen to be.
Boyd Rice Solicitors’ niche experience in dealing with these cases means that you can be assured you receive the best possible advice. We can help in two ways. We can give you advice which will assist you with your immediate difficulties whilst you are still abroad. Secondly, we can make sure you receive the compensation you deserve by instituting legal proceedings from here in Northern Ireland. Many people will be unaware that there is legislation which may permit you to bring your claim in the Courts here even if your accident occurred in the Republic of Ireland, Europe or elsewhere.
Boyd Rice Solicitors have recovered compensation for clients who have been injured in popular holiday destinations such as France and Spain and have also secured very significant settlements for clients involved in accidents in the Republic of Ireland. These are difficult claims and early advice is recommended as different procedures and time limits will apply.
Package Holiday Claims
If your package holiday does not match the description in the brochure or the website then you are entitled to compensation from the tour operator. The tour operator is responsible for all the services that you receive, whether that is the airplane you take to arrive at the destination or the hotel you were staying in, as long as it was part of the package.
