If you or a member of your family were injured in an accident in the USA that was someone else's fault, call our No Win, No Fee Personal Injury Solicitors on freephone 0800 916 9046 or contact us online.
The USA remains a popular holiday destination for Brits, and we have a team of Solicitors that specialise in securing compensation and rehabilitation support for people injured in accidents whilst working, travelling or on holiday in the USA. We offer a free consultation to help you understand if you can claim compensation, and what evidence will be required.
Many accidents result from the negligence of another person. However, most holidaymakers tend not to seek compensation as they are unfamiliar with the US legal system and ultimately their main objective following injury is to return home and recover. To claim compensation you should contact Slater and Gordon Lawyers as soon as possible.
Compensation claim payouts in the U.S. can far exceed compensation figures paid in the UK. This is because, in addition to compensation for the injury itself and financial losses as a result of the accident, a Claimant may also be awarded punitive damages to punish the Defendant.
For Brits unaware of their legal right to bring a holiday compensation claim in America, they could be missing out on compensation to facilitate their recovery and to provide rehabilitation support.
If injured in the USA, you may have a choice as to where to pursue your claim, you may be able to pursue your case in the Courts of England and Wales, or you may need to act in the USA to recover the compensation you are entitled to.
