Tunisia is a country situated in North Africa, which has become more and more popular in recent years with British tourists. While most people may have a great time while visiting this part of the world, there is no denying that things could quickly turn sour if you are injured while there. One thing a lot of people may not realise is that there are specific time limits for personal injury claims in Tunisia in place. They may assume they have three years, as this is the standard limit on most claims. However, time limits for personal injury claims in Tunisia differ based on how your holiday was booked and the circumstances of your case. With that being said, in this guide, we will explain the time limits for personal injury claims in Tunisia so you can get a better understanding. Not only will we answer the question of how long do I have to claim for an injury in Tunisia? We will also take a look at some other key elements of claiming too. This includes providing details on the law for Tunisia package holiday injury claims, as well as revealing how much money you may get if you claim compensation for injuries in Tunisia. If you still have any queries by the time you get to the end of the guide, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Is there a time limit to making a claim? The short answer to this question is yes. However, time limits for personal injury claims in Tunisia depend on the circumstances of your case. Please refer to the table below.
|injury that has happened during a flight that was privately booked.||2 years may very.|
|Illness or injury during a private trip.||Contact us for more information.|
|Illness or injury on a flight, excursion, or at your hotel, as part of a package holiday.||3 years may very.|
From holiday food poisoning or an allergic reaction to whiplash caused in a road traffic accident, there are many different injuries that could happen in Tunisia. Before going ahead and making a claim, you should check that you have a strong case. No one wants to waste their time and money on a service if they don’t actually have a leg to stand on. So, ask yourself the following three questions first…
Who caused the incident?
There is only one place to begin. Who is responsible for the incident? You need to be able to prove that your suffering occurred as a result of someone else’s error or negligence. You certainly cannot be at fault for the incident in question. If you are partially to blame you still may be entitled to compensation. However, the amount will reflect the fact that you were partly responsible, and so you will not receive as much compensation as you would if you were completely blameless.
When did the accident happen?
A lot of people may be shocked to discover that there is actually a time limit on all personal injury cases. Please refer to the table above for time limits for personal injury claims in Tunisia or give us a call for more details.
Did you see a medical professional for your injuries?
Last but not least, it is advisable that you have seen a doctor for your injuries. If you haven’t, how are you going to prove that you sustained injuries to begin with? The medical report is the most crucial piece of evidence. It documents your injuries and the recommended treatment, which will be used to calculate the amount of compensation you will get. If you have not seen a doctor yet, your lawyer could arrange this for you.
While the law for personal injuries does have similarities to the UK, it may seem complex to navigate yourself, which is why an expert may be required. Nevertheless, you can be assured that illnesses and injuries could be claimed for, including illnesses on cruise ships, food poisoning, watersport accidents, swimming pool incidents, road traffic accidents, hotel incidents, and such like. Whether you claim under UK law, international law, or Tunisian law, depends on the circumstances on your case, which is why a wise thing to do is give us a call.
Damages for a personal injury claim are at the court’s discretion. You could claim for both general damages and special damages, which are explained in full later in the guide.
If you are injured on a package holiday, you could claim under UK law instead of law in Tunisia. This is because you could make a claim against the tour operator. This makes the process a lot more straightforward. If you were injured on an excursion in Tunisia, yet it was booked as part of your package holiday, you could claim against your package tour provider rather than having to go directly to the company in Tunisia.
We know that you may want to know how much compensation you may get if you make a claim. You may have even used a personal injury claims calculator. We haven’t put one of those on this page. Instead, we ask you to refer to the table below to see the guideline payout for cases made within the time limits for personal injury claims in Tunisia relating to yours. If you cannot see your injury, just give us a call.

Did you know that Tunisia holiday accident compensation is split into two different parts? You may be compensated for general damages and special damages if you claim within the time limits for personal injury claims in Tunisia. General damages are those relating to the suffering you have experienced in the accident abroad. They are usually calculated based on the seriousness of your injury and the impact it is going to have on your life. Special damages are essentially out of pocket expenses. They are thus any costs you have encountered because of the accident in Tunisia. Examples of special damages include prescription costs, travel expenses, loss of income and childcare costs.
