At Aequitas Legal we appreciate the unique frustration of saving and looking forward to a holiday, only to have it ruined by illness or injury caused by negligence. We specialise in holiday and sickness claims and can help you to salvage what you can from a holiday that wasn’t what you were expecting, including compensation for illness or injury.
An accident abroad can be anything from a road traffic accident, an excursion trip, food poisoning or even if you have been working abroad. Suffering an accident abroad or illness abroad can be very distressing and it can also not just ruin your holiday but the holiday of all the people you are with.
We often find that people do not realise their rights when it comes to a holiday ruined by illness or injury – while a little stomach upset might be par for the course for some when travelling abroad and experiencing a new cuisine, this differs hugely from severe food poisoning caused by poorly prepared food. The first is an inconvenience, the second, a compensation claim.
If you have suffered an accident that was not your fault and could have been avoided, liability could lie with tour operator because it is their legal responsibility to ensure all customers are protected whilst abroad. This includes providing all relevant information to their clients before their travels and making sure healthy and safety regulations are in place.
With accidents that happen abroad, depending on where you are currently are in the world and where the accident happened, there are many ways of assessing compensation overseas. This means that the jurisdiction can make a great difference to the amount of damages that you may be able to recover.
To make a successful claim, you need to prove that the accident / injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, whether it was your travel operators or private excursions company you used whilst out there. This is where Aequitas Legal comes in. Our solicitors will help you compile evidence to present to your travel agents insurers and will ensure you understand where you stand at every stage of the process, as well as what your options are going forward.
With contacts in many countries especially in Europe, Aequitas Legal has the skill and resources to get evidence to support your claim.
Our solicitors will provide you with easy-to-understand advice and guidance throughout the claims process, helping to ease the burden of coping with accidents. We understand that accidents place pressure on you and your family, which is why we’re here to ensure you receive the compensation required to aid and support your recovery.
We approach each case proactively and with sensitivity and care. We are here to help you find the answers you deserve and to get the best possible results for you and your family.
Taking the step to ask for help after an injury that has happened through no fault of your own can be difficult. We use our many years’ experience in dealing with holiday injury claims to get the compensation you deserve to recover after your injury.

I’d just like to give a very positive feedback to Ansa Rashid took on my case & finally got things moving. Before that I had Susan Mason who never answered my calls or emails & the case was ongoing still 3 years on. Ansa took over, got things moving & even through her busy day rang me mostly every week, sometimes on the phone an hour or so. I can not fault this woman she is amazing at her job. Very professional, caring, trustworthy & motivational. Plenty of times I wanted to to throw the towel in but she just wouldn’t let me give up. The case took 4 years in the end & even though we didn’t win I’d still recommend her to everyone. Thank you Ansa you are a star In the making

I was involved in an accident which was not my fault, and was recommended to use Aequitas Legal. From the start, the whole journey with the team was both efficient, professional and sophisticated, with everyone essentially making the process so easy. Their ‘in-Case’ App made simple things like documents and letters so accessible, and meant I could access any import documents at anytime in seconds. I first spoke to Sucheet, who was the gentleman in charge of the company, who explained how everything would work, and pointed me in the direction of Connor, who would be my main liaison during the case. Together, they both ensured I was given the best advice, and seamlessly helped me through the case, which was concluded with a positive outcome! I could not recommend this company more, and will always be my go-to firm.
I was amazed on how determined the team were in seeing my case through. If you are looking for a reliable, easy and transparent team to handle your case, here they are. I would like to thank Somia who I believe either led or coordinated my case for doing a fantastic job in both seeing the case through and communication.
The team at Aequitas Legal were excellent. They were very responsive to questions with appropriate answers as well as being very supportive. They reassured my husband & I throughout our case & helped to acquire an amazing settlement of our case without having to attend court. I would greatly recommend their services to anybody unreservedly.
Highly recommend Aequitas who have recently dealt with my successful case. Special thanks to James Sloane who made the process much easier ; very professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply. Also very encouraging and supportive with regular updates as well as spot on with getting paperwork and documents organised.
For someone like myself who has never been involved in a legal process I'm delighted with how my case was handled with this company.
Fantastic service from Ansa. Shes worked hard on my case and kept me up to date and well informed on everything that was happening. Pleasure to deal with. She deserves the 5stars!
