Holiday sickness claim settlement without a court hearing

Rachel was instructed to represent the Claimant in a travel sickness claim against one of the UK’s largest tour operators.

The matter had been listed for a full day’s fast track hearing, and the parties had been ordered to prepare skeleton arguments in readiness.

Rachel’s thorough and persuasive skeleton argument was provided to the Defendant company’s solicitors who, within only hours of receiving it, offered to settle the matter, with the result that the Claimant obtained a large award without having to go through the pressure of a court hearing
