Further advice

It’s best to get as organised as you can before you go travelling. Planning out your routes will prevent you from getting lost, and doing your research will help you to avoid unsafe neighborhoods. Ensure that you are covered by travel insurance and health insurance and that you understand how to make a claim. Unfortunately, accidents cannot always be avoided. If you are the victim of an injury or an accident, there may be signs your accident was caused by negligence. You should certainly seek legal advice if an accident was caused by someone else’s negligence.
