Injuries can happen anywhere, at home, at work, and even while traveling. Experiencing an injury can be difficult, especially in another country, and knowing your rights can help improve your compensation.
Automobile Collisions in Another Country
Anytime you rent a car, be sure you are covered by your personal insurance, or purchase rental insurance through the rental agency. Suing another driver for damages depends on the law in the country where the incident occurred.
Receiving Medical Care Abroad
We understand that emergency surgery cannot be avoided whether you are stateside or abroad. Just as personal injury claims differ in other countries, bringing a malpractice suit may vary in other countries as well. Before bringing a claim, speak with an attorney to become more knowledge of the laws in the country where you received medical care and if your case if viable within the country’s legal system.
Suing for a Personal Injury Sustained Abroad
Legal systems vary from country to country, however, in most foreign countries if you sustain an injury statutes and legal protections may be in place for you to be compensated for your injuries.
Injured on a Business Trip Abroad
Worker’s compensation claims solely rely on the injury occurring due to a work-related task. If you experienced an injury while traveling abroad for work purposes, and were performing a work function, you may have a claim for worker’s compensation.
If you have been injured at the fault of someone else, always consult with an attorney to learn more about your options. For questions contact Cook, Barkett, Ponder & Wolz for a free case consultation, 1 (877) 337-6651.
