British passengers injured in Egyptian bus 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.
British passengers were seriously injured in a bus crash near Luxor in Egypt.
The bus veered across to the other side of the road crashing into a lamppost before it tipped onto its side. Passengers believe that the driver was falling asleep at the wheel when the bus went out of control.
Angela, a teenager from Lancashire was seriously injured in the incident. On a 'back-packing' holiday with three of her friends, she was thrown out of the bus as turned onto one side.
She sustained injuries to her arm, leg and has facial scarring. She also lost some of her teeth and is receiving dental and plastic surgery treatment.
Angela's solicitor Simon Taylor who specialises in injury and illness cases overseas explains: "As Angela travelled independently, as opposed to with a UK tour operator, legal proceedings had to be issued in Egypt against the operators of the bus service. This presents us with complications since we must work in conjunction with Egyptian lawyers to progress the legal case. Unfortunately, the levels of compensation in Egypt are much lower than here in the UK. Angela is also unable to have her essential medical treatment funded by the defendant."
