Hello I'm John Bennett, I'm part of the Forbes personal injury team.

We claim compensation for people who have been injured in accidents.

We understand that if you suffer an injury it can be very difficult, not only can it affect your work it may affect your family, your friends.

Over the years we've claimed millions of pounds of compensation. That compensation can be used to help put your life back on track and improve your quality of life.

We'll give you straight forward practical advice. We'll guide you and support you through the process, every step of the way.

So if you have suffered an injury in an accident, please give us a call, don't worry about costs, it won't cost you anything, we do it on a no win no fee basis, that means if we win we claim our costs from the other party, if we lose we get nothing.

So if you've suffered an injury in a road traffic accident, in the street, at work or elsewhere, please give us a call or contact us via the website.

If you or a member of your family suffered injuries in an accident abroad caused by the fault or negligence of another person or party, call our Personal Injury Solicitors for a free consultation on freephone 0800 689 0973 or contact us by email.

Holiday accidents and personal injuries claims can be dealt with on a No Win No Fee basis.

Firstly we would need to know the details of the accident. Were you injured on an aircraft, a coach, in a hotel or in a car accident abroad?

Car Accidents Abroad Compensation

If it was a car accident were you driving a hire car, in your own car or were you a pedestrian? If the accident happens in the European Union (EU) then it may be possible to bring a claim for compensation in the UK against the insurance company of the other car.

If the car that caused the accident was not insured or cannot be traced then it still may be possible to bring a claim for compensation, as long as the Police have been involved.

If the car accident happened outside the EU then normally any claim needs to be brought in the Country where the accident happened. This will involve the laws relating to that Country.

Other Types of Accident Abroad Claims

Another common type of holiday compensation claim relates to injuries suffered in a hotel or resort. The number of tourists claiming compensation for food poisoning at holiday hotels has increased dramatically in recent years. Food poisoning in a hotel can affect hundreds of people at the same time, but fortunately there is law to protect British holidaymakers.

If the holiday is a package deal then a claim for compensation can be brought in the UK against the travel company or tour operator.

Should the holiday not be a package deal or the accident occurs during an activity that is not part of the package then any claim is usually direct against the hotel or resort where the accident happened. This will involve the law and regulations relating to that Country.
