But did you know, if you’ve experienced food poisoning at an all-inclusive hotel, a norovirus outbreak on a cruise or a slip or trip by the pool, you could be entitled to thousands in compensation?
Don’t settle for excuses and don’t get fobbed off; our expert Holiday Claims Lawyers are here to help you receive compensation.
No Win No Fee Lawyers You Can Trust
We work on a no win no fee basis, so in the unlikely event we don’t win your holiday claim, you don’t pay us a penny.
Plus, we guarantee that we’ll never charge more than our fixed fee of 25% of your final compensation amount. We take our fees from the compensation before we pay it to you – so you never have to deal with any legal bills.
Have Your Holiday Complaints Been Ignored?
If you’ve suffered an injury or illness on an all-inclusive holiday, you’re protected by The Package Holiday Regulations 1992. That means British legislation is on your side, no matter where you went on holiday.
But if you’ve tried to claim direct from your tour operator, you may already know how difficult it can be to claim the full amount of compensation you’re entitled to.
Our Holiday Illness and Injury Solicitors are experts on the Regulations and how they are applied all over the world. We’ll listen to your complaints so we can assess how much compensation you are owed before we seek out the best offer from your holiday company.
We help you receive compensation from all the major UK tour operators including:
- Thomas Cook
- Thomson/ Tui
- First Choice
- British Airways
How do I claim for illness or injuries abroad?
Claiming is a simple process: All you have to do is call 01625 415 850 and tell us about your holiday and the injury or illness you suffered. We’ll ask you for all the information we need to get your claim started, and we’ll take it from there.
That means all you have to do is sit back, and let us take care of everything for you.
How much compensation am I entitled to for a holiday illness?
As well as any out of pocket expenses, how much compensation you will get depends on your symptoms and how long they lasted. You don’t have to be seriously ill to claim, mild food poisoning that lasted a week or more can attract thousands of pounds.
How much can I claim for food poisoning?
For example, the typical amounts for food poisoning are:
- Mild food poisoning – £700 – £3,000
- Moderate food poisoning – £3,000 – £7,000
- Severe food poisoning – £7,000 – £40,000
How much can I claim for an accident abroad?
The final amount of compensation that you can claim depends on the severity of your injuries, how long your symptoms lasted and whether or not they will affect you in the long-term. For example, if your injury affects your ability to work – this will increase how much you can claim.
As a guideline, the average payout for some of the more serious injuries are:
- Broken arm (up to £15,510)
- Broken leg (up to £31,680)
- Severe ankle injury (up to £56,320)
- Moderate whiplash (up to £31,130)
In addition to the compensation for the injury we will recover any out of pocket expenses and in some cases the entire cost of the holiday from the third party.
