Six Figure Payout For Quad Bike Death

17 August 2016

The family of a British holidaymaker killed in a road traffic accident abroad have been awarded a six figure settlement.

Slater and Gordon LawyerKieran Mitchell is a travel and international litigation solicitor at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in London.

Settlement: €200,000

 What Happened: We represent the family of a young man who was riding a quad bike abroad when a third party driver, who was speeding and over the drink drive limit, collided with him from behind.

Impact: Tragically, he died.  

How Slater and Gordon Helped: We represented the family at the inquest and brought a civil claim on their behalf against the other driver’s insurers using our expertise in foreign law. Despite there being fault on both sides, we successfully agreed a settlement which represented some form of justice for our clients.  

Decision: €200,000 settlement.
