What Will Lanyon Bowdler Do?
We understand that for many people holidays are precious. We therefore understand the disappointment you feel when your holiday is ruined through no fault of your own, due to accident or illness.
Whilst our expert personal injury solicitors cannot recreate the perfect holiday for you, they can prepare a compensation claim on your behalf, helping you pay for any damages, medical fees or bills you may have incurred as a result of your holiday accident.
Whether you have suffered a personal injury, a holiday accident or been affected by food poisoning whilst abroad, we can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
Our Holiday Accident Expertise
Despite the fact that the accident took place whilst you were abroad, you are still eligible to claim compensation. At Lanyon Bowdler our team of personal injury specialists have vast experience of successfully pursuing claims for clients who have been injured abroad.
We have built up a large number of contacts across Europe and beyond. Neil Lorimer, Partner and head of Lanyon Bowdler’s personal injury department, is a member of PEOPIL (Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers), as are solicitors Gayle Kinsey and Louise Howard. They have acted on behalf of clients injured in France, Germany, Netherlands, USA, Croatia, Falkland Islands, Spain, Greece and India.
Whilst claiming compensation for a holiday accident or an illness suffered whilst abroad may seem like a complicated process, especially as laws are different and a foreign language can cause problems, our personal injury solicitors are able to deal with these obstacles ensuring you get the maximum amount of compensation for the illness, sickness or injury which ruined your holiday.
Neil Lorimer and his colleagues in our personal injury department have settled a compensation claim involving a serious holiday accident, which included a large number of deaths and casualties. An accident occurred when a holiday coach careered off a French motorway killing eleven people, including six from Shropshire, and injuring a further sixty, all of whom were on their way home from a holiday in the Costa Brava. The double-decker coach crashed on the A6 motorway near Auxerre, 80 miles south of Paris.
Lanyon Bowdler’s personal injury department have also overseen a multi party action on behalf of 23 Claimants injured in a coach accident in Grenoble France, currently proceeding in the High Court.
Neil Lorimer recovered substantial damages for three clients including Carol Sharpe, injured in a minibus accident near Jaipur, India, which involved consideration of complex issues. Mrs Sharpe suffered fractured vertebrae in her spine. She commented, “Can I add my heartfelt thanks to you and your team for the way you have pursued my accident claim and for obtaining an outcome that came as a wonderful surprise.”
