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 illness.

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.
