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.
