Holiday Accident Claim | Accidents Abroad | Irwin Mitchell Solicitors

Expertise And Understanding From Irwin Mitchell

Holidays are an important time for many of us – a time for us to rest and recuperate. Occasionally some of us may be injured in an accident while abroad and when this happens it may be possible to make a holiday accident claim.

At Irwin Mitchell we fight fearlessly to achieve the best outcome for your holiday accident claim. We are renowned for our understanding of the issues affecting you and your family due to a holiday accident, and we know what positive action to take to make a difference.

Our lawyers offer the highest level of professionalism and expertise, combined with dedication and sensitivity.

Above all, we put you first.

Irwin Mitchell has a team of holiday accident claim specialists who can guide you through the process of claiming holiday compensation for any injuries that you may have suffered as a result of your accident. We may also be able to secure damages to compensate you for the fact that your holiday was affected because of the accident, and any related financial losses or expenses that you may have incurred, such as loss of earnings, medical costs or transport costs.

Irwin Mitchell's dedicated team will be able to provide you with free initial legal advice in relation to your holiday accident claim, carefully explaining the process so that it is easy and stress free as possible.

In many cases we can help with holiday compensation claims even if you had no travel insurance, as it may be possible to bring a claim in the UK Courts against your tour operator or, especially in cases involving road traffic accidents, the insurers of the person responsible for your accident.
