Man with a case at the airport about to go abroad on holiday

Accident abroad claims

Whether travelling abroad on holiday or business few people like to think that their time away will be ruined by an accident, but each year many Scottish holidaymakers are involved in accidents abroad.

Accidents on the road, in hotels and swimming pools do happen.

An outbreak of food poisoning can turn a holiday or cruise into an ordeal.

Compensation for accidents abroad

Digby Brown can help with all types of accident abroad claims.

Our specialist Foreign & Travel Law Department can help you to receive the compensation you are entitled to, whether you have been injured in an accident on holiday or you are a foreign national who has been injured in Scotland.

The laws relating to jurisdiction and damages in cross-border accident cases are complex.

That is why you need expert advice from an experienced lawyer.

Our Foreign & Travel Law Department has successfully recovered compensation for clients who have been injured abroad on holiday or on business. We have also helped clients who have been injured while travelling abroad for example, on the plane.

In addition we have acted for hundreds of foreign nationals who have been injured in Scotland and have recovered millions of pounds on their behalf.

We provide translation and interpreting services so that language is not a barrier.

Global network of specialist personal injury lawyers

Our membership of The Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL) and the American Association for Justice (AAJ) gives us access to a global network of specialist personal injury lawyers.

If you have been injured in an accident abroad we can ensure that you obtain prompt expert legal advice.

Claiming for injuries abroad - what is the time limit?

Although it may be possible to pursue certain foreign accident claims in the Scottish courts, the time limit for bringing a claim may be governed by the law of the place where the accident happened.

The foreign time limit may be shorter than the Scottish time limit of three years.

In addition, the damages which can be recovered may be regulated by the law of that country rather than by Scottish law.

It is important that you take specialist advice as soon as possible.
