Travel and International Injury
What our barristers do
We act in cross-border personal injury claims arising from accidents abroad. We offer expertise in the conflict of laws issues arising in such cases (typically jurisdiction and choice of law) and the handling and resolution of the injury aspects.
Our barristers have experience of the full range of such claims, typically brought against tour operators, hotels, transport companies or overseas motorists and insurers.
We also act in claims brought under international travel conventions such as the Montreal Convention for injuries to air passengers and the Athens Conventions for injuries to passengers at sea.
Our barristers are also experienced in clinical negligence claims arising from medical treatment abroad, both elective and emergency.
We act in individual and group litigation.
Who our barristers act for
We act for injured claimants and for defendants, including overseas insurers, corporations in the travel, transport and holiday sectors, medical practitioners and hospitals and the insurers of all the above.
Where our barristers act
We appear in the County Court, High Court, appellate courts, mediations and inquests. Our barristers also give evidence on English law for the benefit of foreign courts and tribunals.
