UK solicitor explains how you can claim compensation for a car accident from the UK if you have an accident in Corfu, Greece or any other EU country
Corfu car accident victim question
I am British and was on holiday in Corfu in Greece with my wife and two children. I have an international driving licence and decided to hire a car for the day to see Corfu island more fully,
I was stopped at a set of traffic lights when suddenly the car was thrown forward. We had been hit by another driver. My wife was a front seat passenger and my two children were in the back of the car.
I am uncertain as to who called the police, but they very quickly attended at the scene and the driver of the other vehicle admitted the accident was his fault as he was using his mobile at the time the collision occurred.
My family and I were taken to hospital and we were diagnosed with a variety of injuries, including whiplash and back pains.
We have know returned back to the UK, have all of the police details and wonder how we can go about making a claim for compensation.
European RTA solicitor response
