Assault Abroad Injury Claims

Being assaulted in a foreign country can be a really scary experience so when it comes to choosing a solicitor to make a claim, you need someone who understands that.

Our approach to helping you claim

The team at Russell Worth Solicitors are human beings, just like you. From the experience gathered since we started in 1997, we understand as much as anyone can, what it is like to be assaulted in a completely foreign country.

We understand the frustration of having to deal with a judicial system that doesn’t speak the queens English. That’s why we’re here to help you – to get you the compensation you deserve for the assault or hijacking attack that has caused the injury and trauma you have endured.

Why not give us a call to discuss your claim – 0800 028 2060 or complete our Online Claim Assessment and we will get in touch with you at your convenience.

What to do if you are assaulted abroad

The most important step to take if you are the victim of an assault abroad is to find your nearest British Consulate or Embassy. They will be able to assist you with:

There are strict limitations on what embassy staff can do for you. They are not permitted to give legal evidence, provide funds to get you home, influence the outcome of any trial or investigate the crime committed against you.

When can you claim

Depending on circumstances, if you have been the victim of violence abroad then there is a possibility that the claim could be made under the British judicial system. If we can make a claim against the tour operator with which you booked your holiday then this is the first route we would explore. We will advise you on this when we know more about your claim.

What can you claim for?

There are a many different factors that are considered when making a claim – it is not just a figure that is plucked out of the air for a particular injury.
While the injury is a very significant detail in making a claim, we are also able to claim for expenses incurred as a result of the incident so things like:

Regardless of whether you had travel insurance or not, we will strive to achieve compensation from one of the following parties:

Rape, assault or hijacking claims carry rather large compensation amounts, and our solicitors will work tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve, regardless of where it happened.

Steps you can take to help your case

If you have been assaulted abroad there are steps you can take to increase your chances of claiming compensation. These can include:

Our commitment to you

We will go the extra mile to get you compensation that you are happy with. Assault, rape or being the victim of a hijacking, is a serious event to go through and we promise to do everything within our power to bring them to task for their crime.

Where applicable, we will offer you a No Win No Fee contract; also known as a conditional fee agreement. This means that should we work on your claim and lose, we will not take a fee. It essentially means that the onus is on us to win your claim but we will explain all about this and more when we speak with you.
