Our team of solicitors and claims specialists can assist you whether you've had an accident in Scotland or while travelling abroad.

From serious and fatal injury claims, to work accident and whiplash accident compensation, our team can help you and will be on hand to offer guidance in a language you understand.

Whether you have suffered food poisoning during a package tour, have sustained injury in a swimming pool accident or have been involved a road traffic accident while abroad, we can help you secure the compensation you deserve.

Legal advice from an experienced foreign travel injury claims solicitor is essential; the law as it relates to damages in cross-border, multi-jurisdiction cases can be complex and too confusing to be negotiated alone.

Time limits

It is important to remember that although Scottish law means there is a three-year time limit for the making of personal injury claims, this may be shorter when claiming compensation for an accident in another country.

Furthermore, the details of any settlement may be regulated by the law of the country concerned. Seeking legal advice is essential.
