Our expert solicitor wins overseas Road Traffic Accident case for couple

14 July 2010

Our clients were travelling in Libya in April 2007.  As a part of the holiday they took part in a ‘Desert Safari’, in which they were driving over sand-dunes.  Whilst driving over a dune they were involved in a road traffic accident when the car turned over resulting in severe injuries for both people.  One client suffered a fracture to the cervical spine, and the other received an undisplaced fracture to the lumber spine.
Since the incident, both of our clients have made excellent recoveries and have now returned to work. The couple made a claim to the travel company under the terms of the package tour regulations.  Happily both of our clients made an excellent return to health and were awarded damages equating to just under £250,000
