Road Traffic Accident in Taxi in Greece

A British family were involved in a road traffic accident whilst travelling in a taxi in Greece when the taxi lost control, crashing into a wall. The family suffered various injuries ranging from soft tissue injuries to the most significant injury, which was the husband’s permanent partial loss of function in his hand.

The family were hospitalised in Greece in terrible conditions before returning to the UK. The accident has severely affected the family’s life, in particular their livelihood due to the husband’s injuries and they suffered significant financial loss as well as the physical injuries. The family sought compensation for their injuries, damages for personal care and support following the accident and other financial losses, including loss of profit from their business.

Irwin Mitchell secured a global compensation figure for all four family members of approximately £85,000 after successfully obtaining an admission of liability from the defendant and obtaining medical evidence to support the claims.
