What to Do if You Are Involved in a Vacation Accident in Another Country

What to Do if You Are Involved in a Vacation Accident in Another Country

| Dec 15, 2013

In preparing for a vacation to another country, there are so many things to think about. Often, we forget that our everyday securities such as health care and insurance might not travel with us. Checking your insurance policy is on the bottom of a list that involves packing, notifying the post office, and planning your trip.

However, your insurance is very important - it is your protection while you are away. Make sure to check with your personal insurance to see if you are covered in other countries and what you are covered for. If you find out that you do not have coverage, inquire about traveler's insurance to help you.

If you are renting a car, it is important to read through the insurance policy they offer and decide if it is for you. These policies can vary, but should cover any issues with your rental as well as accident insurance.

It is also important to read up on the laws and regulations of the country you are visiting, particularly if you will be driving a lot. Knowledge of the laws should help you abide by them and you can become familiar with that country's policy concerning auto accidents.

If you are caught in an accident, it is important to contact an injury lawyer in that country. They will be the one who is most familiar with the laws and practices of the area. They should also be easier to contact or visit. If you have language barriers, try contacting the US Consulate for the country to be directed to lawyers that can help and speak your language.

In fact, the US Consulate can be very helpful in an accident. They can help you find a lawyer, doctor, and manage any language barriers that might occur. In addition, they are an authority and should help document the accident information.

In essence, knowledge is your strongest friend if you are caught in a car accident in an unfamiliar place. Many of these tips are similar to what you should do when involved in an accident in another state . Following the country's laws, being knowledgeable of their policies, and acquiring the right amount of insurance coverage either through travel insurance or the rental agency are all important steps in the process. If you have more questions and are planning a trip, call George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers for a free consultation .
