Having an accident in a foreign country where you may not speak the language is a really upsetting experience for anyone.  An accident anywhere is bad enough but having a serious accident abroad involving critical injury is a disaster, especially if you did not do anything to cause the accident. When faced with the additional factors that an accident overseas brings: the language barrier, cultural and sometimes medical procedural differences and the prospect of having to take legal action in a foreign jurisdiction, it can seem overwhelming.  

Should you or a relative suffer a catastrophic injury that carries ongoing long term consequences, the importance of immediately seeking legal advice cannot be overstated.  The lawyers in the Giambrone personal injury team will stand by your side in the initial aftermath of an accident and help to orchestrate everything and keep you informed of all actions. They will go above and beyond at such a difficult time to put your mind a rest and let you concentrate on supporting your relative.

Many people are concerned that by instructing an Italian or Spanish lawyer located in the country where the accident took place that means they will have to journey back and forth during the course of the case to keep updated. Giambrone’s multi-lingual personal injury lawyers are in Europe and the UK, the burden of endless travel is removed, except for key dates. 

There are so many factors that must be considered that can be taken from your shoulders by Giambrone’s first class professional advisors. We have extensive experience of obtaining substantial compensation for clients and will ensure that nothing is overlooked to make certain that the best possible result can be achieved for an injured person.  One of the most compelling aspects of building a case for compensation in a personal injury matter is whether the effects of the injury are likely to have a long term consequence.  Serious injuries can affect your earning power in the future. Depending on the nature of the injuries and how well you recover, the compensation you receive must take into account the potential for on-going ill effects that are only revealed after a period subsequent to the accident; or additional health issues develop as a result of the accident.  These factors should form part of the basis of the compensation a court will award you in recompense for the accident that was no fault of your own.   

It is far harder to rectify an under-valued claim than it is to get it right in the first place.  A comprehensive review of all effects your injuries have or may have on your ability to work and the potential for other detrimental consequences to arise over time, must be thoroughly investigated to establish the actual chance of further impediments emerging that will prevent a return to full working life; this includes taking into consideration your age, your skill set and proficiency up to the accident, the projected effects your injuries have or will have on your work and whether you could realistically work in any other sector.

Once absolutely all relevant information has been acquired and examined we can negotiate your settlement in the full understanding of all the implications, risks and consequences.  Our lawyers will assist and support you through the process from the very start to the final conclusion.

We are experienced in getting the best out of a bad situation.
