Hamilton Lady Awarded £5500 in Compensation for Egyptian Holiday Accident


A lady from Lanarkshire was successful in making a personal injury claim against tour operator, First Choice Holidays, when she fell down a poorly covered manhole at the Coral Beach Hotel in Egypt.

Holiday Accident Compensation

Mrs Inglis from Hamilton in Scotland was represented by the Simpson Millar Holiday Law Team who achieved an “out of court settlement” for her Holiday Claim that she was delighted with.

The Dangers of Unexpected Manholes Abroad

As a result of her accident Mrs Inglis sustained soft tissue injuries to her wrist and ankle. Together with the shock of the accident she had to cope with the associated sleep disturbance.

Following her return from holiday, Mrs Inglis contacted Nick Harris who is Head of Travel Law at Simpson Millar, for free legal advice about making a Holiday Accident Claim.

The Importance of Specialist Knowledge in Holiday Claims

Owing to the specialist knowledge Nick has about making an accident claims in Egypt, it was determined that Mrs Inglis could make a claim against First Choice for the injuries suffered under a “no win no fee” funding arrangement.

Under the terms of the agreement, if successful, all of the holiday compensation would be paid to her and Simpson Millar would not take a cut.

A Great Result for Mrs Inglis

Nick Harris was able to use his specialist legal experience of Egyptian safety regulations and Package Holiday Law to bring about a successful result for Mrs Inglis.

Nick’s experience of bringing accident claims involving Egyptian hotels meant that a quick settlement was achieved for the Claimant.

Praise for the Simpson Millar Holiday Claims Lawyers

Following the successful resolution of the Claim, Mrs Inglis said of Mr Harris:

Nick was amazing, he would always respond to emails very promptly even when we sent them outside business hours. He explained everything clearly and sent regular updates and advice when needed”

Health and Safety in Egypt

Nick was also delighted for Mrs Inglis but cautioned about risk of accidents at foreign hotels;

“Places like Egypt do not always possess the high safety standards that exist in the UK. That does not necessarily mean you cannot claim for injuries that happen abroad”

“Simpson Millar have lawyers that have worked in the travel industry and know how tour operators like First Choice may defend foreign accident claims.”

The Simpson Millar travel team are happy to speak to anyone for a free consultation about their overseas accident involving a tour operator.
