Choosing the Right Holiday Compensation Claims Solicitors
Before instructing a solicitor you must be careful to choose the right firm for you. Here we offer some tips which you may wish to consider;
Are you instructing a law firm or a ‘claims farmer’?
Be very careful to choose a law firm to conduct your holiday compensation claim.
There are many companies who allude to being solicitors but are only interested in selling on your claim at a profit. They are usually known as claim referral or claims management firms – many of them advertise on TV.
Claims referral and management firms will try to hide the fact that they are selling on your claim and so they should as they are doing nothing for you apart from putting you in touch with one of their panel solicitors – which you can do for free.
Tip – Ask the firm if they will be conducting your case or whether it will be one of their panel solicitors. If the company puts you in touch with another firm of solicitors this is a very good indication that your claim is being sold to the highest bidder and not the necessarily the best firm to handle your claim.
You have a right to be told at the outset how much your claim will be sold for.

Is the firm sincere?
Would you trust a law firm who calls for a particular hotel to be closed when an outbreak of sickness happens?
Some law firms and claims referral firms claim to be consumer champions by calling for tour operators to close hotels. In truth these firms depend on these hotels to generate their work – so why should they want the hotels to close?
At Simpson Millar we are not crusaders and neither do we pretend to be. We are plainly honest.
We make profits by winning cases for holidaymakers injured abroad. It would be insincere for us to want to close hotels where people become ill as this would lead to less work for us.
