International Injury & Travel Claims
Outer Temple Chambers is a set with an international reputation with manned offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and New York.
Where an accident or injury has occurred abroad, or in the course of travel by air, land or sea, conducting a subsequent claim can be technically difficult and practically challenging. We specialise in navigating the legal and jurisdictional maze.
Our international injury and travel team are experienced and knowledgeable in handling a wide variety of claims, whether package travel claims, direct claims against insurers as a result of road traffic or other accidents, skiing and other sporting claims. This work includes other specialist areas of Chambers such as clinical negligence and catastrophic injury claims where there is a multi-jurisdictional aspect.
Our team regularly deal with group and class action claims with a foreign element, including product liability, multiple victim accidents and wrongful death. Members of Chambers are experienced in representing and advising clients in respect of accidents and claims concerning the course of carriage, especially by sea and air and involving the Athens or Warsaw / Montreal conventions, typically cruise ship claims and air accidents.
We have particular expertise in respect of vehicle accidents abroad, which potentially involve the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
We handle claims to which foreign law applies and can advise clients on the correct approach to obtaining and effective use of foreign law expert evidence, including the assessment of damages, appropriate discount rates, periodical payment orders and other significant issues revolving around the quantum of cases.
Members act on behalf of both Claimants and Defendants, including those based outside England and Wales, and in respect of contribution and contractual indemnity claims for and against suppliers of services to UK consumers abroad.
We act regularly in cases where European social security providers and other insurers raise subrogated or assigned claims arising as a result of a personal injury accident or injury.
Chambers are regularly instructed in contractual disputes involving tour operator liability and product liability claims.
