If you've been injured in a workplace accident, road traffic accident or other incident abroad – perhaps while on holiday, on an extended stay outside of the UK or while visiting friends – Thompsons's specialist lawyers in Scotland can help you make an accident abroad claim for the maximum possible compensation.
It is important to remember that you can start your claim with Thompsons even while you are still abroad, this is particularly imperative as there are strict time limits in place for the making of a claim, and these vary from country to country. Another advantage to taking swift action is the fact that collecting evidence is much easier when carried out an early stage, particularly in relation to gathering witness statements.
Thompsons is one of Scotland's leading personal injury firms with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Peebles, Galashiels and Aberdeen. We win around 90% of the cases we take on and secure more than £1 million in compensation for our clients each week.

There are, however, various factors that impact on the viability or otherwise of an accident abroad claim and foremost among these is timeliness, so talk to us today for more information about your rights – the sooner you begin your claim, the better its chance of success.
