We had an accident in a taxi on 8th December 2019 in Gorda

Customer Question

We had an accident in a taxi on 8th December 2019 in Virgin Gorda (British virgin Islands) whilst on a Caribbean cruise with P & O Cruides. The taxi firm paid all our medical Bill's but we want to obtain legal advice on how we die the company for loss of our 2nd week of the cruise and the injuries that we are still recovering ftom6. Do you know of any Legsl team here in UK who could help us fight this case?
Assistant: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: We live in Coventry, England.
Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: We have contacted our travel insurers who won't get involved as we have no outstanding medical Bill's. I have contacted 2 legal firms who have told me that the claim needs to be made in Virgin Gorda. Although one suggested I contact CAB to see if you could suggest anyone
Assistant: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just to say that my husband and I both had cuts that required stitches. My husband badly hit his chest I thought I had broken my back (was badly bruised no breaks). My husband had to push me around in a wheelchair the second week of holiday. Since being back my husband has been to doctors and hospital for CT scan
