Has your holiday been derailed by an unexpected injury or out-of-pocket loss?
Holiday troubles are not just disappointing, they can also cause you to lose the money invested into your trip or incur significant new expenses. At the same time, if the accident or incident occurred overseas you may be forced to navigate a foreign legal system, overcome a language barrier, or both.
The legal issues arising from travel incidents can be particularly complex, especially if you were abroad. Shine Lawyers has a dedicated Travel Law team who can help in navigating complex, international contractual and compensation claims.
The average holidaymaker will enter into a number of contracts for different services. Shine Lawyers can assist you with contractual disputes against third parties such as travel agents, airline companies, tour operators and insurers.
As travel takes many forms, this can occur in countless different circumstances. Some examples include
- your travel agent may have failed to organise your visa,
- you were charged you for a service not provided,
- your package holiday may not be as described, or
- your airline may cancel your flight and you’ve incurred a cost
Our travel team can also help with claims for injuries overseas.
Compensation for injuries abroad
You may sustain an injury on holiday while travelling to or from your destination, during a booked activity or even as you go about your regular day-to-day activities.
If the injury was a result of somebody else’s actions, then you may be able to claim compensation. Our team can also provide obligation free advice on whether it’s viable.
No Win No Fee Compensation Lawyers
Our No Win No Fee promise means that you only pay legal fees if your claim is successful, helping remove some of the financial stress.
If you think you may have a claim, Shine Lawyers can assist you with all travel-related contractual disputes and injuries, whether they occurred in Australia or overseas.
