€240,000 recovered following fatal road traffic accident in Greece

We recently successfully recovered €240,000 for our clients, the family of a 61-year-old woman, who was killed when the car in which she was travelling flipped over onto the side of the road in Crete.

Because of the accident, our clients sadly lost their mother and grandmother. We were able to consider the case and sensitively advise them on all of the options open to them for pursuing their claim, in particular, where they would recover the highest award of damages. The claim was ultimately pursued in Greece.

The Greek Defendants appealed this case, nevertheless, we strongly fought off the appeal and successfully recovered €240,000 for our clients. We also set a legal precedent for the first Greek case in which Greek damages were awarded to English family members (as defined under English law).
 
The Greek Defendants have advised that they will appeal this case a second time. This appeal is due to be heard later this year, however, we are extremely optimistic and our clients are now thinking only of the future.

"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."
