A Guide To Claiming Compensation For Accidents On Holiday In Romania

Romania has become more accessible to tourists in recent years and now enjoys visits from 2.2 million overseas holidaymakers every year. The UK makes the top ten, on a list of nationalities that visit Romania on holiday. Popular reasons to go on holiday to Romania include going on city breaks, visits to the mountains, skiing holidays and historical monuments of Transylvania. Romania is a relatively safe country to visit and most holidays to Romania, are trouble free. This is with the exception of Romania’s roads, which are known for being particularly dangerous, so driving in Romania is more dangerous for tourists from the UK, than it is back at home. If you have become injured or ill because of an accident on holiday in Romania that was caused by negligence on the part of a third party you could be owed compensation.

Accident Claims UK has created this guide for people who have experienced an accident on holiday in Romania and wish to claim compensation.

I Had An Accident On Holiday In Romania, What Should I Do?

If you experience an accident on holiday in Romania that was caused by negligence on the part of someone else, you could be entitled to make an Romania holiday accident claim for compensation. Below is some advice for collecting evidence to support your compensation claim at the scene of the accident. The advice below is legal advice not medical advice. If you are seriously injured or ill the most important thing is to get the right medical treatment at a doctor’s surgery or hospital. Everything else can wait. If this happens you can ask a friend or family member to collect evidence for you to support your claim.

Follow these steps at the scene of the accident in Romania, to collect evidence to support your claim:

  • Photograph your injuries to provide visual evidence. Include a date stamp if possible.
  • Photograph the health and safety hazard that caused your accident to provide visual evidence. Include a date stamp if possible.
  • If you need to buy anything because of your injuries keep the receipt, as you could be reimbursed for these expenses. The receipts may also provide evidence to support your holiday accident claim.
  • If you are injured because of a car accident in Romania, speak to the other driver and take down their contact details. Make a note of the model, colour and registration plate number of the other car or vehicle. Do not sign any paperwork given to you by the other driver, the driver’s lawyer, or insurer without first consulting your holiday accident solicitor.
  • If there are any witnesses to your accident, take down their name, telephone number and email address. They may be able to provide evidence to support your claim later.
    Report your accident to your tour operator, or the relevant management of the establishment where you had your accident. Make sure it is accurately recorded in the accident log book.

How Do I Contact The Emergency Services In Romania?

The number for contacting the emergency services in Romania is 112. This includes the ambulance, fire brigade and police services. You should only dial 112 in emergency situations. If you are injured or ill, but the situation is not critical, you can visit the A&E department of a hospital or get the treatment you need at a doctor’s surgery.

If you require diplomatic assistance in Romania, such as a member of your party being attacked or arrested, you can contact the British embassy in Romania on this number: +40 21 201 7200. There is more information about contacting the British embassy in Romania, at the end of the guide.

Healthcare In Romania For Tourists

If you are an United Kingdom citizen you can use a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to obtain the same state healthcare in Romania that local citizens are entitled to. You can apply for an EHIC card here using this online guide. At Accident Claims UK we recommend that you also purchase fully comprehensive travel insurance to cover the costs of any healthcare that may need when travelling to Romania, or any other foreign country. Firstly this is because the state healthcare system in Romania may not be as comprehensive as the NHS’s healthcare system, so health insurance will guarantee that the treatment you need is covered. Insurance will also cover the costs of repatriation and other services you may need if you are seriously injured.

Because the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union in 2019, UK citizens may no longer be able to use an EHIC in EU member states after this date.

Personal Injury Claim Time Limits In Romania

If you are injured on holiday in Romania, or made ill on holiday in Romania, you could make a Romania holiday accident claim for compensation. How much will depend on your injuries. There is a personal injury claims time limit which applies, which is the time allowed for beginning your holiday accident claim. The personal injury claims time limit will begin after the date you became injured or ill, or realised you had been harmed if your symptoms were not immediately apparent.  We have included more information about personal injury claims time limits in the table below:

Tour operators selling package holidays to Romania, have a duty of care towards their customers. What does this mean?

This means that your tour operator has a legal obligation to take every reasonable step to provide you with a safe and hygienic environment on holiday, when using facilities or services they are responsible for. This includes high standards of health and safety at the hotel, during airport transfers, or during excursions and sports activities that they have organised.
