Legal 500 (2016)

£36,000 awarded to holidaymaker after Spanish road accident

We have successfully recovered compensation for a client who was injured in a road traffic accident whilst on holiday in Spain.

Our client was travelling with her husband in a car on a motorway near Huesca when, without warning, a car driven by a Spanish driver collided with their car. The impact was so violent that the car slid along the road on its side before it eventually came to a stop. When it did, the car windows had been smashed in and most of our client’s personal possessions had been destroyed.

The emergency services took our client to the local Spanish hospital where she received treatment for lacerations. Glass was removed from her cuts and her wounds were cleaned and dressed. When she returned home, our client spent many more months going to her local hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, even with treatment, she now has some permanent scarring.

We pursued our client’s claim against the Spanish driver and commenced formal legal proceedings in the English courts. Shortly before trial was due to commence, we successfully negotiated settlement of our clients’ claim with a payment of £36,000 in compensation.
