Personal injury in a foreign country

Accidental injury

Accidents are in a small corner. If you suffer personal injury while abroad, it is important that you have the right information on how best to handle it and whether you can claim the damages. Generally, when settling damages, the laws of the country where the accident occurred apply. In this case, it is best to hire a lawyer who specializes in the law of that country. A personal injury lawyer will support and advise you in what you can do to establish liability and recover damages.

Liability and compensation for personal injury abroad

If you are unexpectedly involved in an accident in Turkey, we can support you in filing a compensation claim and whether you qualify for compensation. With personal injury abroad, the applicable law will have to be checked on a case-by-case basis.

In some cases, there is an exception based on an applicable treaty, as a result of which a different law applies when determining liability. An example is when you have booked a vacation through a Dutch travel agency. In such a situation, you can hold the tour operator liable and Dutch law will be used to determine whether the damage will be compensated.  

There are a number of things you need to consider. First, it is important to know that you can file personal injury claims abroad with a Dutch insurer. If you took out travel insurance before your trip, you would do well to check the policy terms carefully. That way you will know whether the insurance policy provides coverage for personal injury abroad.
