"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"

Legal 500 (2016)

£41,000 recovered following coach crash in France

We recently acted for a woman who fractured her hip whilst on a coach tour holiday of France.

The accident happened when the coach that our client was travelling in stopped outside one of the hotels that the coach party was to stay in in Cannes. Three or four of the passengers stood up to gather their belongings when the coach suddenly drove off again. This caused our client to fall in the stairwell of the coach, causing her to break her right femur and injure her left knee and shoulder.

The case was pursued in England against the package tour operator and against the French insurer of the coach. Court proceedings were issued and the case almost went to trial before the Defendants admitted liability in full and settled the claim to the client’s satisfaction in the sum of £41,000.

"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."
