Serious Injury Abroad

Sustaining a serious injury is harrowing enough, but when it happens abroad, it can be an even scarier and uncertain experience. Whether it’s a head injury, a broken limb or any other serious injury, being stuck in a foreign country where you don’t speak the language, and receiving medical assistance while not quite knowing what’s going on is daunting. It might help to know that the specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte are here to help you obtain the compensation you deserve once you get back to Scotland. We will run through everything that happened with you and give you an honest opinion as to your chances of being successful in a claim for compensation. Get in contact with us today and we can discuss your claim.

How Solicitors in Glasgow can Help you with a Serious Injury Claim

A serious injury sustained abroad can have a hugely detrimental impact on your standard of living. As such, it is very important that we have all the evidence before us to enable us to pursue your claim most effectively. This means that we need all the reports and records of your visit to hospital, both in the country in which you were injured and when you were back in Scotland. We also need the contact details of any potential witnesses and the booking documents and other information about the holiday itself.

It is important to remember that the limitation period for bringing a claim is usually around three years, so the sooner you get in contact with us the better.

Serious Injuries While on a Package Holiday

If you were injured while on a package holiday, and your tour operator was negligent, it will be them against whom we bring a claim. While you are on a package holiday, your tour operator is liable for every aspect of the holiday.

Serious Injuries While Abroad

Where you have suffered serious injury abroad and you weren’t on a package holiday, the rules are a little more complex. Different rules will apply depending on if you were on holiday in an EU-country or a non-EU country. The specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte are experts in traversing the complex issues of jurisdiction, and the different rules that apply. That is why it is important to have us on side.
