Austrian Bus Driver Slams On Breaks and Injures Holidaymaker

Irwin Mitchell represented Mrs L from Chesterfield, in respect of injuries she sustained following an accident in Austria on the 21 September 2010.

Mrs L boarded a coach at Bergbahnan Fieberbrunn, to take her to the Ski Gondolas at Fieberbrunn. As Mrs L was about to disembark, the driver of the coach slammed on his brakes so hard that she fell forward hitting her shoulder on one of the chairs. As a result of the accident Mrs L sustained a broken humerus.

Irwin Mitchell pursued a claim directly against the Austrian Insurance Company, and successfully recovered £4,000 on Mrs Loach behalf.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
