Legal 500 (2016)

$60,000 recovered for British tourist injured in Road Traffic Accident in Los Angeles

We successfully recovered compensation of $60,000 for our client, a British tourist who was injured in a road traffic accident whilst on holiday in Los Angeles. Our client was a passenger in the vehicle driven by her friend when they were involved in a collision with another vehicle at a road junction.

Our client was taken to hospital where she remained for 3 days. She was diagnosed as suffering with 3 broken ribs and a fractured sternum as well as whiplash injuries to her neck. On her return to England she was seen on numerous occasions by her GP but eventually made a full recovery from her injuries within 6 months of the accident.

We were instructed shortly after the accident and following extensive negotiations with the Defendant’s legal representatives in the USA, and following the issue of Court proceedings in Los Angeles, were able to agree settlement in March 2011 in the sum of $60,000.

If you, or someone you know, has suffered a similar accident, please contact us.

"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."
