The Facts about Jessica Clarke’s International Injury Accident and Settlement Process
Jessica Clarke, a business analyst, was in Scotland when she applied for an internship in Vietnam through a Sydney-based company. The company promised safe travel arrangements, but this entailed being a motorcycle pillion passenger. During a ride back to her bungalow, her skirt got caught in the bike’s spokes, causing a severe accident. Jessica funded her medical treatment and evacuation back to Scotland via ‘go fund me’. Her solicitors in Scotland, along with Peter Carter, sued the Sydney company for failing to implement safe travel protocols for its interns. The claim was settled for $500,000.
