    No win no fee holiday compensation claim


    You may have had an accident which was no fault of yours whilst on holiday and be thinking about making a no win no fee holiday compensation claim; or you may have contracted an illness whilst on holiday which was caused by another person’s negligence. You could also make a no win no fee holiday compensation claim for that.

    Any accident or illness you have whilst on holiday will probably ruin it, which is a pity as you may have been looking forward to it for nearly a year. Compensation can cover the pain, distress and suffering you endured. You could have the cost of your holiday reimbursed, as well as compensation to cover loss of earnings, if your illness or injury was such that you had to take time off work and of course, medical treatment and medical expenses.

    No win no fee holiday compensation claim for an illness

    If you contracted an illness such as food poisoning or Legionnaire’s Disease whilst on holiday abroad, then it is likely that other guests staying in the same hotel also suffered from the same illness. You will have to keep the doctor’s report so that you can make a no win no fee holiday compensation claim when you return to the UK. You can make a claim against the travel agent who sold you the package holiday, if you can prove that it was the negligence of their representative(s) that caused your illness.

    For example, if you had food poisoning (along with other guests) after eating in the hotel you were staying in, then you would have grounds to file a compensation claim when you returned to the UK, against the travel agent with whom you booked the holiday.

    Similarly, if hotel guests suffered from Legionnaire’s Disease and were admitted to hospital, or had to have medical treatment, then you would also be able to make a compensation claim. You would need to prove that it was caused because either the air-conditioning system had not been well maintained, or that the water system had been badly maintained. This would be the fault of the hotel owner and their failure to carry out responsibilities regarding the health and safety of guests.
