Travlaw Statement On Illness Claims

We note that the Law Society Gazette is leading today with the news that The Solicitors Regulation Authority has contacted a number of Claims Management Companies (“CMC”s) regarding the still-increasing number of illness claims against holiday companies.

Travlaw warmly welcome this investigation. Acting as we do for so many holiday companies we know what a problem this is. The genuine claims that do exist are dwarfed by the many, many ones which are questionable. Access to justice is something we are firmly behind – but our clients also deserve that justice. Hopefully the SRA’s probe, in conjunction with the many efforts made by companies like Travlaw, plus the fine efforts of ABTA, will see a sensible end to this situation sooner rather than later.
