Not your average package holiday claim
Here at Thompsons we understand that working and travelling abroad is a part of many people's everyday lives. But, accidents can happen anywhere and when you are in a foreign country it can be frightening and overwhelming, especially if you are travelling alone.
If you are on a holiday, you are probably covered by the Package Travel Regulations, but if you are organising your own travel and accommodation etc, or are on an extended trip which allows you to work while abroad, you may not have the same protection.
Similarly, if you are visiting the UK on holiday or on an extended trip to live and work, you may find yourself suffering a non-fault accident and unsure of who to turn to for assistance in making a compensation claim.
These are the sorts of situations where the team at Thompsons can help.
Claim from abroad
If you are involved in an accident or suffer ill health at work, you don't have to struggle with the system abroad, contact Thompsons and we can assist you. We can even start the process of making a claim, so you will know all is in hand when you return home.
Personal injury solicitors here for you when you are away
We are based in Scotland, but we can help you wherever you are or wherever you are from. If you are a foreign national who has been involved in an accident anywhere in Scotland, we can assist you. Or if you are ordinarily a resident of Scotland but have suffered injury abroad, we can help.
A number of Thompsons' solicitors are members of PEOPIL - the Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers - which works in a not-for-profit capacity to improve and promote judicial co-operation and mutual knowledge of legal and judicial systems across European jurisdictions in the field of personal injury law.
