Liability row to High Court

Liability for injuries received in a horrific fire at a ski resort hotel in Andorra is the subject of a High Court row. Three women, two of them South Africans who had to jump for their lives from a 40 foot high bedroom window, are suing Top Deck Ski, trading as Top Deck Travel Agencies, of 131-135 Earls Court Road, London SW5. They accuse the company of negligence for failing to ensure the hotel where the accident happened in December 1992 had adequate safety precautions.
