How Much Does it Cost?
This is a question that many people ask when considering making a holiday compensation claim.
We accept holiday claims on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.
How Much Compenastion Will I Get?
You will get an award for pain and suffering – the amount you will receive will
depend on how long you were ill or injured and the extent of your illness or injury.
For example – The Judicial Studies Guidelines in 2010 indicated that claims for
illness should start at £600 for very minor illness to £33,500 for very serious
In addition to compensation for pain and suffering your holiday claim would also
include any out of pocket expenses or losses you have suffered - such as lost earnings,
medical costs, etc.
