International Travel Lawyers Investigate Airport Shuttle Bus Crash in Lanzarote

Irwin Mitchell Receives Reports That Multiple British Passengers Were Injured In Collision


International travel lawyers at Irwin Mitchell have been instructed to investigate a collision between a car and airport shuttle bus in Lanzarote that had British tourists on-board.

The incident happened on the morning of 19 September on the way to the airport after picking up holidaymakers at various hotels, including the Playa Blanca Resort, Corbetta Apartments. 

The leading law firm has been instructed by a couple who were travelling on the bus who reported there were multiple passengers who sustained fractures and lacerations before being taken to a nearby hospital.

Kirsty Green, a travel law expert at Irwin Mitchell who specialises in helping people who suffer injury abroad, said: “We have been instructed by two passengers in relation to this incident who have reported that there were more people on-board who suffered injuries.

“It is vital that steps are now taken by the relevant authorities in Spain to understand the circumstances which led to the crash, with the ultimate aim of ensuring those affected can get the answers they will no doubt be seeking. 

"Through our work on behalf of passengers injured in such incidents we have seen how crashes can lead those involved to suffer both physical and psychological trauma. It is vital that victims are able to access the support they need following the crash. 

“Spanish law requires claimants to pursue legal action within one year of an alleged incident occurring and we urge anyone with any information about this collision to get in touch.”
