Our team settled a claim following a serious road accident in France. Our client's husband was driving their vehicle when he turned across traffic on a busy road, unfortunately causing an accident and leaving our client with serious but stable injuries.

As a result we were able to resolve the claim for damages of almost £100,000 to include the recovery of an insurer's outlay. We settled the claim within about 9 months of instruction.

Were the claim to be assessed in accordance with French law it would have taken a great deal more time and our client would not have received damages at such a high level.

As were able to successfully argue that English law applied to the claim we were able to obtain a very good result for our client.
