"The team has so many contacts with foreign insurers and so many people with foreign languages that it is miles ahead of others."

Car Accidents Abroad


We have unrivalled experience in acting for clients injured in car accidents all around the world. We have successfully recovered compensation for hundreds of clients, several of whom have won record damages. Many claims can be pursued in you home country.

If it is not possible to bring your claim in your home country, we have several foreign and dual qualified lawyers who are able to advise you and negotiate with foreign insurers on your behalf.

Basis of claim

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident abroad, whether as a passenger, driver, or pedestrian, then you may be able to claim compensation. In most cases, a driver’s fault must be proved. However, in some countries, such as France passengers, pedestrians and cyclists may have an automatic right to claim compensation for a road traffic accident, even if nobody is at fault.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
