8. What if I was injured in an accident abroad?

If you were injured outside the UK, you usually have to make a claim under the law of the country where it happened. However, sometimes this isn't so, particularly if the person or organisation responsible is based in the UK. For example, if you had an accident while on a package holiday, you may have a claim against the tour operator who sold you the holiday.

Claiming under foreign law can be difficult and expensive and you will need to get expert legal advice. Some personal injury solicitors in this country specialise in claims for people injured abroad.
