Car Accident Victim Finland Question
My girlfriend and I were on a driving holiday across many European countries including: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland and Italy. This holiday was planned for 6 months.
When we travelling in Finland we were driving along a road in Helsinki and stopped a set of lights when all of a sudden our vehicle was thrown forward with great force.
I was knocked unconscious and I came round in an ambulance and learned that a small truck had collided with the rear of our car and had pushed us into a stone wall on the side of road. The police had attended and taken the details of the other driver who had accepted responsibility.
My wife and I were taken to hospital – I was diagnosed with severe whiplash, lower back vertebral injuries and concussion; my wife was diagnosed with a broken left foot, spleen damage, cracked teeth, whiplash and post traumatic stress disorder.
We have now returned home to Manchester in the UK and we wish to make a claim for the damage to our car and for all of the injuries which we suffered in the car accident in Helsinki, Finland.
Is it possible to make a claim from the UK?
