Travel Accidents and Illness claims process
“The Travel Team were excellent in every respect.”
Making a claim can seem like a daunting process. At BL Claims Solicitors we make it as easy and hassle-free for you as possible.
Our team have experts in Travel Claims that are dedicated to dealing with accidents and illnesses that occur abroad. Our team has native French, Spanish, Italian, German, Bulgarian and Polish speakers as well as expertise in the laws and regulations in countries across the world.
Each claim begins with a friendly one-to-one discussion with a personal injury expert about whether you may be entitled to compensation. You tell us what happened, we listen and then advise you on your claim and explain how we will process your claim.
Our experienced Travel team will always put you at ease and reassure you that making a claim need not be as stressful a process as you may have imagined.
If you decide to make a claim, we will send you some paperwork that we can help you with completing if necessary. This gives us permission to start pursuing your claim.
Making the claim
For accidents abroad, we will determine the best country in which the claim should be brought. This will depend on where the accident happened, where the Defendant lives and how the trip was booked. Each country has its own rules and procedures. Our team will advise on the best location to bring your claim.
We will write to the Defendant or their insurer, with details of your claim, including injuries and any financial losses and why we consider them to be at fault. If appropriate, we will ask the Defendant to consider rehabilitation and agree to fund treatment.
