Austrian Coach Crash

In August 2004, a party of British tourists were returning by coach from an excursion to Berchtesgarten in the German Alps.  A minibus was overtaking the coach when it hit the front causing the coach to swerve and roll down a banking.

Holiday Accident Claim

The driver of the minibus was found guilty of causing the death of 5 people and injuring forty others and was sentenced to twelve months imprisonment, suspended from driving for 3 years and was fined €3,600.

We are currently acting for a group of twelve passengers injured and relatives of a further passenger who died in the accident.

A claim has been brought against the owners of the minibus in Austria, we are continuing to fight for compensation for our clients.

"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."
