Road Traffic Accidents Abroad

Have you had a road traffic accident whilst abroad on holiday?

I’m guessing that you’re here because your holiday didn’t turn out to be the holiday of your dreams? In fact, it’s highly likely that, you have (or someone you love has) recently had a road traffic accident on holiday and you feel that you or they may be entitled to financial compensation

As a result of developments in European law, we are progressively able to pursue European road traffic accident claims with the English Courts.

Many European countries have regulations where fault does not need to be demonstrated in cases involving passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. 

If you are involved in a road traffic accident abroad whether as a driver or passenger or whether in a car, taxi, coach or bus, it is possible that you may have a right to seek compensation if another party was in error and it is obvious. In certain countries you must seek medical attention straight away as this can be a requirement to compensation in some countries.


If you have unfortunately been involved in a road traffic accident abroad you could possibly be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Don’t assume making a claim must be in the country where the accident happened. At Aequitas Legal we have been in English Courts for foreign accidents. Make the right choice as to who you want your case to be handled by as this can be complicated area of law and it is important that your case is handled in the correct manner.

When you make that call here’s what will happen…

A member of my New Enquiries Team will ask you where you were on holiday and to describe your accident with as much detail as possible. Don’t worry about this bit, we realise this may be distressing. We speak to lots of people in a similar situation day in day out and we know a lot of our clients like to ask questions at this point and, of course, we are always happy to answer them. Oh, and if you forget to ask something don’t worry, we’ll give you a special number to call us back on at any time.

  • Once we have gathered all the facts about your holiday accident we’ll establish the best way forward and we’ll report back to you quickly. We’ll give you advice of course on how we think we should proceed to obtain a successful outcome for you but at this point it’s entirely up to you to decide what to do next armed with our advice. You are in full control, with a team of experts behind you.
  • Then if you do want us to pursue the claim for your holiday accident we’ll discuss the next steps with you.
  • …And remember, none of this will cost you a penny. If we are unsuccessful you don’t have to pay our fees. If we’re successful in pursuing your claim then as well as getting the compensation you deserve we recover most of our costs from the other party. You’ll contribute a percentage of your compensation towards our legal fees but only in the event we are successful and this is payable at the end of your claim. We’ll pay for everything needed to build your case like the cost of retrieving medical records and preparing reports.

Do you have a case? 

Taking the step to ask for help after an accident whilst on holiday through no fault of your own can be difficult. We use our many years' experience in dealing with travel claims to get the compensation you deserve to recover after your injury.
