Latest news & insights:

While everyone looks forward to their holiday, the sad fact is that thousands of holidaymakers suffer accidents, injuries and illnesses abroad. This may ruin your holiday but can also have a life-changing impact on your future. There are usually laws to protect you and allow you to claim compensation - however remote the destination.

Our dedicated and highly experienced team of lawyers can help you pursue a claim at no financial risk to you wherever you are in the world. From a motorbike accident in Germany to medical mistreatment in the US, food poisoning on safari, a Turkish ballooning accident or a train crash in Ecuador, our friendly and efficient team has helped clients achieve the best possible outcome for their claims and to get their lives back on track.

We never forget that at the heart of every claim is an individual whose life and that of their family may be changed forever by a holiday accident abroad. Our priority is to seek the best possible outcome for you using our extensive knowledge of personal injury claims abroad and our global network of specialist lawyers.

From your initial enquiry through to the resolution of your claim, we will work closely with you to fully assess and investigate your case; to liaise on your behalf with insurance companies; and to negotiate with the defendants. We are well regarded within the insurance industry and have previously won the International Travel Insurance Journal (ITIJ) Award for Legal Services Provider of the Year.

Initial advice is offered free of charge and without obligation. This can include guidance over the telephone, a visit from one of our specialist solicitors or a review of your documents. We offer various forms of funding, including no win no fee (conditional fee) agreements. Our team aims to ensure that you receive maximum compensation while minimising the legal costs involved.
