Thanks for your question, I will do whatever I can to help you. Please remember to rate my answer SMILEY FACE OR ABOVE.

I am sorry to say yes but it is difficult.

What you would need to do is issue proceedings in Egypt.

You can not issue proceedings in the uk as the accident happened in Egypt and uk judgements are not recognised there.

So while you could issue proceedings you would need to instruct and pay for a lawyer in Egypt.

This could be very complicated and expensive. As a uk lawyer I can not advise on the legal process in Egypt.

So while in theory yes you could sue cross border litigation is very expensive.

I realise that this may not be the answer you want but I hope this helps.
