Daniel Scognamiglio, Partner in our Travel team, recently assisted a client following a spinal injury during a boating accident in Thailand.

The claim for damages was brought against the tour operator who provided a speed boat transfer between islands in Thailand. Unfortunately the boat hit a wave that caused the bow of the boat to bounce up and fracture the claimant's vertebra whilst she was seated. Our client underwent spinal surgery in Bangkok the claimant returned to the UK but was unable to work following the incident.

Upon instruction, our team were able to recover a substantial amount of damages for the client.
