Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.

FAQs

FAQs

Who can I make a claim against?

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may be able to make a claim against:

  • The hotel or resort management and their insurer for health, safety or hygiene failings.
  • The tour operator you booked a package holiday with, for failing in their duty of care to provide safe and secure accommodation and facilities for you and your family.

Our travel litigation solicitors will be able to advise you further as to who you’re able to make a claim against.

How much compensation can I expect to receive?

The amount of compensation you’re entitled will depend on several different factors, including:

  • The severity of your physical injuries — corroborated by an independent medical expert.
  • The psychological trauma you’ve suffered.
  • Your loss of earnings through taking time off work.
  • Your ongoing care and medical support requirements.
  • Mobility aids and home improvements you now require as a result of your injuries.
  • Other financial losses you’ve incurred in the wake of the accident, including overseas medical expenses and travel costs.
  • The loss of enjoyment you’ve experienced as a result of your holiday being cut short or affected.

Our solicitors are experts in achieving maximum compensation for accident claims abroad, both inside and outside the EU. To find out the value of your claim, contact our team now for a free no obligation consultation.

How long do I have to make a claim?

The amount of time you have to claim will depend on which country the accident took place.

If you were holidaying or working in the UK, you normally have three years from the date of the accident to bring a compensation claim. However, some countries have much shorter time periods, some as short as 6-12 months from the date of the accident.

We’d always recommend seeking legal advice at your earliest opportunity following an accident in a hotel abroad.
