Accidents Abroad

Every year, thousands of people are injured in accidents while abroad. Thankfully, much like in Ireland, there are usually laws in place to help people injured in accidents overseas. If you’ve been injured while abroad, whether for work or leisure, in an accident that wasn’t your fault, our professionals could help you claim compensation.

The laws around making compensation claims can differ from country to country, and the procedure may also be different depending on whether you were on holiday, or were working abroad. In these situations, it helps to have the experts on your side. We have Ireland’s largest and most successful team of experts specialising in making accident claims abroad, with several of our panel recognised internationally as leaders in the field. We also have more than 20 years of experience in pursuing claims following a wide range of accidents abroad, including:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Accidents at sea
  • Skiing and sports injuries
  • Medical negligence
  • Criminal and sexual assaults
  • Hijacking and terrorist incidents
  • Serious injuries
  • Accident whilst working abroad

Most of the international personal injury claims we handle are made in Ireland. But in some cases it may be beneficial to make your claim abroad. We can advise you on this in a free assessment about making a claim. Compensation claims in Ireland are normally funded through a No Win No Fee agreement. This means that there’s nothing to pay upfront, and that you won’t have to pay any of your own  solicitors legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful.

If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault while abroad, contact us  for a free initial consultation on your case.

There’s no obligation to continue with us after this conversation – you’re free to just ask us for our advice on whether or not you can make a claim.
