Road Traffic Accident In Belgium

Irwin Mitchell’s specialised accidents abroad team has secured compensation for Mr Darke from Kent, in relation to injuries he sustained following a road traffic accident in Belgium on 21 June 2011.

Mr Darke is a lorry driver by profession and was driving his employer’s lorry in Antwerp. He was stationary in heavy traffic when suddenly and without warning he was jolted forward by an impact to the rear of his vehicle. This impact shunted his vehicle into the vehicle in front.

As a result of the accident Mr Darke suffered a significant whiplash injury.

Mr Darke decided to contact Irwin Mitchell’s specialised accidents abroad team and one of our legal professionals was able to deal with his claim. The team pursued a claim against the Belgian insurance company on Mr Darke’s behalf and successfully recovered £7,000 in compensation.

"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."
