Accidents and illness can happen at any time but when they happen while you’re abroad, they can prove to be a nightmare. Instead of relaxing on your holidays, misfortune could see you facing mounting medical bills and a range of other complications.
Browell Smith & Co Solicitors’ legal team has over 20 years of experience in handling holiday claims on behalf of clients.
If something does go wrong on holiday, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation against your holiday company or tour operator. In such cases, the claim can usually be dealt with on your behalf in the UK courts. However sometimes that is impossible and the case has to be brought in the country in which you were injured.
At Browell Smith & Co we have dealt with overseas matters of many types, from trips and falls to sporting accidents as well as air, road and sea accidents and illness or accidents while in transit.
Contact our expert team today to arrange a free initial consultation at any of our offices, in Newcastle, Cramlington, Ashington and Sunderland, or alternatively at your home, to discuss your particular requirements.

Should you decide to instruct Browell Smith & Co, our team will take full details of your accident or illness and will also explain your options in relation to how to fund your claim. If you choose to go ahead, we will require copies of your holiday booking documentation to assess whether your holiday was a ‘package holiday’ or not.
Much will depend upon whether your holiday is a ‘package holiday,’ or an ‘independent booking.’ If your holiday was a package holiday, then you will be protected by special package travel regulations.
In holiday accident/illness claims, it is important that you seek legal advice quickly. Strict time limits apply to these claims and are governed by different conventions and local laws, as are certain rules for transit by cruise ship, by sea or by airline. Some countries’ limitation periods for accidental injury can be only 12 months and not the three-year standard in the UK.
It is essential that as a preliminary matter you deal promptly with any claim and ascertain the limitation period appropriate to your claim.
Request a callback and our team will be back in touch as quickly as possible for a free initial consultation. We're continuing to deliver a quality service in these changing times and our teams are available to take new enquiries and manage existing caseloads via calls and/or video conferencing.
