Marc Dando is a Bott and Co Holiday Sickness Team Manager. His experience has been broadened and deepened by positions in an insurance company and law firm over the last 25 years.
Prior to joining Bott and Co in 2017, he worked for Colemans / Simpson Millar for just over 18 years, and the last 6 years were in the holiday sickness / accident area. He became an Associate with the firm in 2008.
Having developed a specialism in general Personal Injury, Marc has successfully helped many clients to recover substantial sums of compensation in fast and multi-track road traffic accidents claims.
However, following the significant changes to Road Traffic Accidents at the time, an opportunity arose to move into the holiday sickness and travel sector and develop a young team. Marc found this an extremely exciting challenge to develop in a totally different area of law.
“Falling sick while away on holiday can really ruin your trip especially when you’re abroad or when treatment has to continue when returning back home, because sometimes you need to take time off work to recuperate,” said Marc.
Marc’s expertise in holiday sickness compensation means he is able to understand his client’s needs and provide relevant practical solutions in a clear and concise manner. His current role involves managing a team with a caseload of over 300 files.
“Thanks to the dedicated team and developed relationships we’ve had over the years with both old and new clients, we continue to be committed in ensuring our clients receive the maximum amount of compensation they deserve, and as quickly as possible,” commented Marc.
He passionately believes in fighting for justice for claimants, and holds a vital role as team leader. Marc’s main objective is to prepare current and new cases ready for court issues in the ever changing world of holiday sickness claims.
When asked what the most rewarding part of his role, Marc said: “The team I work with are exceptional and we work together tirelessly to secure the right settlement for our clients and ensure the claimant’s journey is as stress-free as possible.”
When not busy helping Claimants with their cases, outside of work, Marc is kept very occupied by his two children, although he still manages to play a round golf most weeks and has been a member of the Bolton GC golf club for over 30 years. He also enjoys cooking and the occasional game of 5-a-side football.
