Before embarking on the adventure of a lifetime, it’s not likely that you’ll heavily consider the laws of the country you’re travelling to. If something were to happen to you while abroad, though, the jurisdiction you’re in could greatly impact your rights. Similarly, if you were involved in an accident while overseas or you ran into trouble on your travel tour, you would want to make sure you could claim travel insurance or enforce travel operator’s contractual obligations.
Travel law is a niche area of expertise that our West Sussex lawyers can help you with. More often than not, time is very much of the essence if something were to go awry while overseas – you may be seeking urgent medical treatment or trying to get home after a travel bungle. Our team have experience in helping people keep safe, get home and recover. We have the legal expertise to address cross-jurisdictional issues, work within language and time constraints, consider the merits of pursuing a case abroad or seeing if a claim can be raised within the UK, and combing through the terms and conditions of travel insurers or tour operators.
If you need timely legal advice after suffering an accident, illness or dispute overseas, contact our travel solicitors today on 01403 858 648.
