As the children are counting down to the six week’s holidays many families are looking forward to getting away to enjoy the sun.

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from an injury abroad, knowing what to do may help alleviate some of the stress.
Here we highlight some things to consider, should you or a loved one get hurt whilst on your summer holiday.
Seek Urgent Medial Attention
Paying For Treatment
Once You Are Home
Often an accident or injury abroad can completely ruin your holiday and a serious incident can become a blur due to the shock or upset. Once you are home you may recall more information about what happened and start to consider whether you have a claim.
Even if you do not feel that you require any further medical attention, it is recommended that you visit the hospital or see your GP as often the levels of service are different to those in other countries and a second opinion may be critical if something has been missed or you have been ill-advised.
If your injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party then you may be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering you have endured along with financial losses incurred as a result. To bring a successful claim you will need to prove that the accident was caused by negligent actions of another party – i.e. the hotel or tour operator.
