Australian Travel Lawyers to present at annual PEOPIL conference
Stacks Goudkamp are proud to announce that Managing Director Tom Goudkamp and Practice Group Leader Victoria Roy have been invited to present to the annual PEOPIL conference in Madrid on 9 September 2016.
PEOPIL (Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers) is a not for profit organisation to share and improve knowledge of personal injury law, particularly in cross border cases. Whilst PEOPIL has a predominantly European membership, its members include lawyers from across the world including Australia and the United States. The highlight of the PEOPIL calendar is the annual CPD conference, this year held in Madrid, Spain, and it is with great pride that our Tom Goudkamp and Victoria Roy will be presenting to delegates on personal injury law from an Australian perspective.
Tom and Victoria are both long standing PEOPIL members and have dozens of cross border cases between them. Tom has grown a particular speciality in acting for foreign visitors to Australia who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents. Tom understands the complexities experienced by foreign Plaintiffs bringing a claim in Australia, and makes the claims process as easy as possible for them by gathering evidence in the foreign country to support the claim. This is often done in conjunction with local lawyers with whom Tom has worked on numerous past successful cases.
Victoria specialises in representing Australians injured overseas, and in particular on cruise ships. Victoria practised in this area of the law in the UK before emigrating to Australia, and uses the supportive network of foreign lawyers through PEOPIL in cases where advice on foreign law is required.
Tom and Victoria will be speaking on respective panels about evidence in personal injury claims and fatal accidents claim, both from an Australian perspective.
If you were injured whilst visiting Australia and need a lawyer who understands your situation, or are an Australian who has been injured overseas, contact our friendly and knowledgeable lawyers online or on 1800 25 1800 for a no obligation assessment of your claim, or make an online enquiry.
