How DAS Law can help you
Our experienced team of dispute resolution lawyers can provide you with practical legal advice and representation in the event of a dispute involving lost luggage.
Compensation up to approximately £1,000 for lost luggage.
Important things to consider
Here are some important things you should be aware of regarding your legal problem:
- If you are unfortunate enough to have your luggage damaged or lost altogether, you may be able to claim compensation from the airline or through your travel insurance provider.
- If this happens it is important to immediately inform the luggage handling desk at the airport and complete a Property Irregularity Report (PIR).
- The maximum amount payable for mishandled baggage claims is just under £1,000 per passenger, unless you made what is known as a ‘special declaration of interest in the delivery of your luggage’ before it was lost.
- Airlines generally do not accept liability for any stress, inconvenience or further problems resulting from the mishandling of baggage.
How much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you with your claim for lost luggage, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:
Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
If you have a motor or home insurance policy this may include LEI cover. If so, your legal costs may be covered by that policy, subject to its terms and conditions. If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.
If you do not have LEI cover, then we have a host of fee options which we will tailor to suit your needs. Where appropriate we will offer competitive fixed fees for each stage of your case so that you have complete certainty on your legal spend. Where this is not suitable, we offer a range of discounted hourly rates, depending on the experience and seniority of the person dealing with your case.
Our legal advisers are always happy to discuss our fee options with you in more detail.
