British Ministry Of Justice Clamps Down On Fake Sickness Claims

New rules have now been introduced by the British Ministry of Justice, severely limiting the amount of money that lawyers can charge when they file sickness claims for tourists.    In the past the lawyers´ fees sometimes tripled the amount of compensation that hoteliers had to pay.     In the last three years alone the scam has cost Balearic hoteliers more than 80 million euros and the number of bogus sickness claims made by tourists soared from 5,000 in 2013 to 35,000 in 2016.
