Holiday accidents and Illness claim lawyers in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee
We have helped thousands of people just like you successfully claim compensation following an accident abroad. The lawyers at Calio Claims have broad and extensive experience and can help you make a claim in the following areas;
- a skiing accident
- road traffic accident whilst on holiday
- an injury on a cruise ship
- an accident involving a flight
- accidents on a package holiday

We have successfully dealt with countless travel compensation claims, from simple fractures to food poisoning cases on cruise ships. We also handle vehicle, public transport and motorcycle accidents that took place abroad. For accidents involving spinal injuries, we have a separate team of specialist lawyers, given the specific legal and medical issues involved. You can also claim for medical and dental negligence suffered abroad that has caused you injury.
In each case, we offer pragmatic and empathetic advice, looking at all the possible areas for which you can claim compensation including:
- medical costs in the UK or abroad
- costs of rehabilitation or future care
- compensation for pain or injury
- loss of earnings or earning potential
- loss of enjoyment of a holiday
If your injury or illness was sustained while you were on a package tour or holiday, your claim might be covered by the Package Travel Regulations. These regulations make it easier to claim for compensation abroad; however, there are some restrictions and we can guide you through the process.
The time limit for making a compensation claim in the UK is three years; however, this will vary where your injury or illness was sustained abroad. Do get in touch with an expert personal injury solicitor on 0800 988 8082 as soon as possible in order to make your claim within the time limit.
Claiming compensation for an accident abroad
At each stage – from immediately after an accident to the final settlement – we take clients through all the practical steps they can take to secure their financial position. This ranges from helping collect the evidence they need, to advising them about ‘after-the-event’ insurance to litigate if necessary.
When you approach us about your potential claim, our aim is to have a full understanding of your position to help give you the best possible outcome. We will, therefore, ask you detailed questions about your travel, and the injury sustained. We will also require details on the types of treatment you have received and would ask you where possible to provide any evidence relating to this, as well as evidence relating to the treatment costs, or the cost of any care or medication. This way we can measure the amount you have lost out financially as a result of your injury and can begin to value your claim.
Throughout each claim, we use state-of-the-art case management software to maximise ease, efficiency and convenience for clients – from enabling them to upload photos from smartphones, to prompt progress reporting.
We can also use our extensive networks to connect clients and their families with specialists in anything from rehabilitation and care provision to home modifications.
Our membership of the Law Exchange International network means we can offer you access to high-quality legal advice in other countries, where appropriate.
Wherever possible, we aim to deal with claims on a ‘no-win, no-fee’ basis.
