40 holidaymakers injured in Gran Canaria coach crash
Thank you for all your time and excellent work and rest assured that if myself or family or friends require any legal help in the future I will refer them to yourselves.
A TRAVEL firm could be sued following the holiday coach crash that killed two Scottish tourists and injured many others.
The brakes on a bus failed as it ferried 54 tourists back from a welcome party in Gran Canaria on Monday.
Spanish police praised the actions of driver Maria Antonia Quintana who swerved into a barrier to avoid plunging over a 36ft drop near Amadores Beach. She escaped injury.
A full investigation into the cause of the accident, which left another 40 holidaymakers injured, is still going on.
Simon Taylor, foreign injury solicitor said: "Under the laws governing package holidays, tour operators are responsible for all services provided including flights and transfers and in this case coach travel."
"Unfortunately when dealing with a tragedy on a scale as the Gran Canaria crash pay-outs are likely to run into millions of pounds."
Officials at the Cheshire travel firm Seguro insisted the 15-year old coach was roadworthy. Spokesman Richard Burke said:"We use a bona-fide coach company. All the papers are in order."
Alexander Harris are currently representing five passengers who were injured in the crash.
