Over €5,500 recovered following a road traffic accident in France

Irwin Mitchell represented a woman who was injured in a car crash while on holiday in France in July 2007.  Our client was driving her vehicle correctly along a two-way street when another vehicle, driven by a French driver and coming in the other direction at high speed, turned left across her path when attempting to turn into a side road. 

The other driver collided with our client and she suffered fractured ribs and sternum, a severe whiplash injury to her back and neck, and considerable bruising.

Irwin Mitchell negotiated directly with the UK representatives of the French driver’s insurers and obtained an admission of liability very early in the claim.  Our client recovered over €5,500 for the pain and suffering caused by her injuries and her financial losses, which included the expense of hiring another car in France whilst her car was being repaired.
