Simpson Millar's Holiday Illness Solicitors are renowned for their expertise and accept claims on a 'No Win No Fee' paying basis. If this is the first time you have considered instructing lawyers to pursue a holiday illness claim you are likely to be concerned about how much it might cost.
You will not pay for our services unless we successfully recover compensation for you and you have taken our advice about insurance.
Provided we believe you have a valid claim for compensation, holiday illness complaints valued at over £1000 are suitable for No Win No Fee funding especially if there is no alternative means of funding is available to you.
Our solicitors and lawyers are specialists in helping people who have suffered from an illness on holiday or during a sickness outbreak at a hotel abroad.
Being ill on holiday is distressing and expensive. We will do all we can to redress this and ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible from your tour operator.
Provided your holiday illness claim has merits and we agree to pursue your claim on a "No Win No Fee" basis, we will only be paid at the end if your holiday claim is successful and we recover compensation for you. If we are unsuccessful we simply do not get paid.
If we win, we are paid by your tour operator, recovering our basic costs and expenses from the other side at the end of your claim.
Furthermore, because our Holiday Illness Experts risk not getting paid for the work we do when we take on travel claims we charge a success fee in the event that we successfully win compensation.
Success fees are only paid after we win and the sum charged will not exceed 25% of any compensation above the first £1000 you recover. You will receive 100% of the first £1000 of relevant damages recovered which is ring fenced.
We guarantee that you will only pay a success fee on the amount of compensation we recover which exceeds the first £1000 which is yours to keep.
Provided you have taken our advice on insurance, even if we do not recover all our expenses and costs from your tour operator or opponent at the end of the claim we will not ask you to pay any shortfall in our legal fees.
Expenses for medical reports, court fees etc, are also recovered in full or part from your opponent.
In the event that your holiday illness claim is unsuccessful and we discontinue your claim you will:
After the Event Insurance (ATE) is taken out to protect you and costs from only £150 plus 10% tax it ensures that if your holiday illness claim is unsuccessful you pay nothing.
If we are unable to settle your claim amicably with your tour operator and we have to issue court proceedings to further your claim, there is the risk that you could lose your claim or discontinue it. Whilst in these circumstances you would not pay us a penny, you may have to pay some of your opponent’s legal costs and your own expenses.
Our Holiday Illness Claims lawyers are authorised to arrange suitable ATE insurance for you to cover these risks and will recommend a policy to suit your requirements.
The ATE cover available to Simpson Millar is unique in that:
