Our team were recently instructed to assist a client, an English tourist, who was hit by a motor vehicle whilst on vacation in Hawaii.

Our client sustained whiplash type injuries as a result of the road accident. Daniel Scognamiglio, Partner in our Travel team, successfully recovered $45,000 in compensation for the client following the claim, which was the full extent of the indemnity provided by the motor policy. In this case there was no more money that could have been paid by the motor insurer in the USA.

Whilst it was a good result, this case does highlight the need to ensure anyone travelling to and from the USA has good travel insurance in order to receive a fair and full compensation payment following an accident abroad.
