Scots holidaymakers sue Jet2 after Tenerife bus crash
Passengers suffered fractured limbs and cuts from broken glass in the smash.
Scots holidaymakers are suing Jet2 after an airport bus crash in Tenerife.
Passengers suffered fractured limbs and cuts from broken glass in the smash at Tenerife Airport.
A lorry carrying concrete pillars crashed into the side of a transfer bus carrying passengers from the plane, which had arrived from Glasgow to the terminal.
More than 60 people were thought to have been injured in the smash in December, with 12 looking to sue Jet2 through Digby Brown Solicitors.
Mark Gibson, of Digby Brown, said: "This was a harrowing incident for the passengers. Those affected included elderly passengers or families with small children.
"Dozens were left with significant physical injuries while others are still suffering from mental trauma of being involved in a significant traffic collision.
"It has emerged in our investigations that some passengers, despite nursing multiple injuries, were reluctant to seek medical help as they were fearful about the upfront cost of medical care.
"Clearly this had a significant impact on their ability to enjoy holidays that they had been looking forward to for some time."
Around 150 people were on the Glasgow Jet2 flight, which had just landed at Tenerife South.
Mr Gibson added: "The civil claims are made possible against Jet2, without the need to sue abroad, due to an International Treaty called the Montreal Convention which provides that an airline is responsible for the safety and welfare of passengers until they have completed the disembarkation process.
"We are now pursuing a number of civil claims against Jet2 with the view of securing fair settlement for these holidaymakers."
A Jet2 spokeswoman said: "We have not been notified of any formal proceedings, however it would be inappropriate for us to make any comment in light of these details."
