BBQ Accident in France

Our client was invited to a barbecue while on holiday in France. Unfortunately, the host carelessly lighted the barbecue with fuel and it exploded, causing serious burns injuries to our client’s legs and resulting in a hospitalisation both in France and in England.

The case proceeded in France. Following negotiations, compensation in excess of €68,500 (approximately £56,520) was secured for our client, not only for her injuries but also for the earnings she lost during her time off work and in reimbursement of her private medical expenses.

"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."
