Who can make a motorbike or cycling accident abroad compensation claim?
Before we accept your case, we’ll investigate the circumstances of the accident to establish who was responsible. You’ll normally be able to make a claim when there’s evidence to show that:
- The accident was caused by the driver of another vehicle.
- The accident was caused by the driver of a vehicle you were a passenger in or on.
- There was a fault with the vehicle, which should have been fixed.
- The accident was caused by a poorly maintained road or traffic signal.
In circumstances where you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be able to claim some compensation. Contact our team today for free, no obligation advice about your claim.
How long do I have to make a claim?
How long you have to make a road traffic accident abroad claim will vary depending on which country you were in at the time of the incident and the law which applies to your case.
For accidents that occur in England and Wales, you normally have three years from the date of the accident to bring a compensation claim against those responsible. However, this will not be the case if your accident took place outside of England and Wales where English law does not apply. Some countries have much shorter time periods, some as short as 6-12 months from the date of the accident.
Our experienced travel litigation team can advise on the road traffic accident claims process for countries in the EU and around the world. We’d always recommend seeking legal advice at your earliest opportunity following an overseas road traffic accident.
Who can I make a claim against?
Who you bring a claim against will depend on the circumstances of the accident.
In cases where you were involved in an accident with a car, you can claim against the driver and their insurer.
If you were in or on the same vehicle as the person who caused the accident, you can bring a claim against the driver and their insurer.
If the accident took place while you were on a booked excursion or had hired a vehicle travelling as part of a package holiday, you could claim against the tour operator for failing in their duty of care to provide safe passage for you and your family.
If insufficient signage or poorly maintained roads were to blame for your accident, we can help you bring a claim against the local authority responsible for managing the upkeep and safety of the road network.
