Holiday Sickness Compensation 100% No Win, No Fee

I am a Consultant Lawyer at MJW Law. I have over six years of experience in personal injury claims and I am specialised in holiday sickness claims. I have acted for numerous clients in pursuing compensation for illnesses which have been contracted whilst on holiday. Many clients have attempted to obtain redress directly from the Travel Agent/Tour Operator with little or no success.

Why Do People Bring Claims For Holiday Sickness?

Many people are initially reluctant to make a holiday sickness claim. Some are embarrassed about the idea of having to talk about the symptoms. Some read the news and see the stereotype attached to making holiday sickness claims (suggestion of fraud and a ‘compensation culture’). The common feature is that most of my clients wouldn’t even need me if the travel agent simply acknowledge that there was an illness, that it was likely caused by the hotel and that they were sorry it happened. I would say at least 8/10 of my client would not have made their holiday sickness claim if the travel agent simply apologised.

The main reasons for bringing a holiday sickness claim is to get recognition that their holiday was ruined. Some clients feel they wasted many days of the holiday feeling sick, needing to use the toilet so frequently that they could not enjoy the holiday…. some even have to spend time in a hospital being treated by medical staff who may or may not have a sufficient grasp of the English language.

One of my clients were outright accused of lying and making the illness up. My client was so outraged by the allegation that this pushed her to make a holiday sickness claim where previously, the thought had never crossed her mind.

Many people incur a financial loss as a result of a holiday sickness. Some do not have insurance and have to pay the medical bills up front (or may still pay an excess), some return to the UK still ill and lose time off work. A holiday sickness claim is just not about claiming compensation, it is also about getting recognition that the holiday was ruined as a result.

FAQ

Why should I instruct Alec Hancock rather than a law firm directly for my holiday sickness claim?

As a Consultant Lawyer, I do not have the same overheads as a law firm (such as paying for office space, equipment, staff members) and as such do not have to take on as many client compared with lawyers in a law firm. Some holiday sickness law firms can have lawyers dealing with a case load in excess of 100 cases.

I do not have that issue and as such will have more time to deal with your holiday sickness claim. You don’t have to compromise quality yet your claim will be still dealt on the same “No Win, No Fee” as any other personal injury firm.

How can I afford to pursue a claim? I cannot afford to pay the legal fees

Our claims are run on a No Win, No Fee basis (called a Conditional Fee Agreement) which means that you don’t have to pay anything out of your own pocket. If you are unsuccessful or if the chances of your case winning decrease because of some unexpected evidence, you will walk away with no cost to you and no liability for the other side’s legal costs.*

Will I still be able to book a holiday with the travel agent if I bring a claim against them?

Of course, it is your statutory right to bring a claim for redress if there has been a failure to perform contract or there has been a breach of your terms. Many of my clients book holidays with the Defendant whilst bringing a holiday sickness claim claim again them with no issues.

What Have My Clients Said About Me?

From the very start of the very complicated process right up to the end Alec has been extremely helpful, sympathetic, and understanding he always answered our many questions straight away and was really good in also explaining the process of the claim procedure at each stage through to its successful conclusion.”
