Family Awarded Compensation after Car Accident in France

03 March 2015

Slater and Gordon Personal Injury Lawyer Matthew Tomlinson secured over £6,000 compensation for a family involved in a car accident whilst on holiday in France.

Matthew’s clients were travelling home to the UK with their two children after holidaying in France. They were travelling by car when suddenly they were hit from behind by another car driver.

This situation became quite frustrating for Matthew’s clients, not only because of the car accident itself but also due to the issue of cross jurisdiction. The family were from England, but they were involved in a car accident in France.

Although liability was admitted by the car driver who crashed into the back of the family’s car, Matthew was successful in his lengthy negotiations with the French insurance company and reached a healthy settlement of £6,750 in compensation for his clients.

Matthew’s clients were very grateful to Matthew and can now use the money to go on another, less traumatic holiday.
