Car Accident Abroad Claims

Have you been involved in a car accident abroad that wasn’t your fault? Accident Assistance is here to help you claim.

Car Accidents in or out of Europe

Accident Assistance can help you claim compensation if you have suffered an injury in a car accident abroad that wasn’t your fault. The EU has abolished many restrictions on car travel within Europe, meaning more British drivers are travelling between countries more frequently. While this is a good thing, it also increases the chances of car accidents occurring abroad. If the accident took place in Europe, our UK based solicitors could assist you in making a claim for personal injury compensation or we could help you with access to a European network of injury solicitors. If the accident took place outside of Europe, we could help you claim in the country where the accident took place.

What You Can Do

Due to legislation changes (The Fourth European Union Motor Insurance Directive) that took place in 2003, it has become much easier for a British citizen to claim for a car accident that took place abroad. However, there are a few things that you can do that will significantly increase your chances of making a successful claim:

  • Keep any photos taken of your personal injuries, damage to your vehicle and the accident scene.
  • Keep any paperwork or receipts relating to the incident.
  • Document and keep as many details as possible in relation to the accident. This includes registration plates of any vehicles involved, the location and any witnesses.
  • Make your claim as soon as possible. If you had an accident in Spain, for example, you must make your claim within 1 year of the accident. Each country has a different deadline as to when claims have to be made.

How Accident Assistance can help you

Being the victim of a car accident abroad can be a traumatising experience, resulting in a reluctance to drive abroad again. This can severely affect your career and your holidays. Accident Assistance can quickly connect you with our claim specialists, making your claim as easy and simple as possible.
