Bott and Co solicitors has settled a landmark 1000th claim against airlines in their fight for passenger rights. Since their foundation in February 2013, Bott and Co’s flight delay compensation department have recovered over €1million (£825,000) for 2,100 passengers on delayed and cancelled flights across 36 different airlines, thanks to European legislation.
Passengers whose flights are cancelled, delayed over three hours, or are denied boarding are entitled to compensation under EU Regulation 261/2004.
Bott and Co are the leading UK law firm offering a flight delay compensation service and have settled cases in as quick as 7 days and from flights dating as far back as October 2007.
We are helping David take on Goliath, we have issued small claims track proceedings on behalf of over 1,000 passengers. We will continue to battle until airlines recognise their legal obligations.
Delayed passengers can use the flight delay claim calculator on our site to instantly assess whether they might have a claim and are also offered a free claim letter to send to airlines. If they don’t want the hassle of dealing with the claim themselves or, as has proven to be the case, the airlines attempt to fob them off they can use the firm’s no-win no-fee service.
Bott and Co have access to an unrivalled wealth of historical flight data and technical expertise provided by their partners EUclaim, allowing them to put together detailed weather reports and reports to combat airline’s arguments.
Paul Hinchliffe, Managing Partner at Bott and Co said: “We have shown we will stand up to the airlines on behalf of passengers. We are helping David take on Goliath, we have issued small claims track proceedings on behalf of over 1,000 passengers. We will continue to battle until airlines recognise their legal obligations. Regulations are clear and if the airlines pay consumers where they should then it won’t be necessary to involve a law firm.”
