Amandeep Dhillon

Partner

Biography

I specialise in both international and domestic group illness claims, accidents abroad which involve foreign laws and jurisdictions, and incidents at sea and in air.  I have successfully acted for thousands of people in this regard, and have a great passion for seeking justice which has been translated with many rewarding results.

I have secured damages for passengers aboard the ill fated Costa Concordia vessel, and for people affected by the fatal Grand Hotel Italy outbreak.  My experience also extends to high profile domestic cases such as the tragic Stoke Legionnaires case, and the highly publicised salmonella outbreak at the Newcastle Spice Festival.

I take great pride in securing exceptional settlements for my clients in sometimes challenging circumstances, and great reward from helping them secure justice.

Testimonials

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I was inspired to take up a career in law as I have a keen sense of justice and a background in social justice.  My mother has been awarded an OBE for her work in this area, and whilst my familial leanings are more political, I seek to promote fairness and justice on behalf of those wronged in a legal sense, particularly consumers.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The most rewarding aspect of my role is securing justice in challenging evidential circumstances, and helping secure redress for these clients.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell is committed to providing exceptional support for our clients, whilst fighting on their behalf with great tenacity.  Compassion and resilience are two of my own core characteristics which make the firm and I an ideal match!

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I enjoy playing sports and reading, particularly historical pieces.

    Lawyers Instructed To Investigate After Boy Who Fell Ill With Salmonella On Egyptian Holiday Diagnosed With Sepsis

    “This is a hugely troubling case which highlights the devastating impact that salmonella food poisoning can have, with those most vulnerable such as children often going on to develop further complications and health problems. “After the Egyptian authorities have confirmed last week that E. Coli, which is a potentially fatal bacterial infection, was the cause of Mr and Mrs Cooper’s deaths at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic in August, it is even more concerning that yet another Egyptian case has come to light where a young holidaymaker has been left with potentially life-long complications. “Sepsis is incredibly dangerous and can prove fatal if not diagnosed quickly. It is not an exaggeration to say that the swift actions of the staff at Birmingham Children’s Hospital may have saved Luay’s life. “It is still not known what Luay’s long-term prognosis will be but we are investigating what Luay has faced and are determined to get answers following confirmation upon his return from holiday that he was suffering from Salmonella. It is vital that, where possible, lessons can be learned from this case so others do not face similar issues in the future. “As part of our investigations we would like to hear from other guests who may have information about conditions at the Tia Heights this summer.”

    Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel Hurghada: Irwin Mitchell Instructed By Over 45 Holidaymakers To Investigate Egyptian Hotel

    “Through our work we often see first-hand how serious E coli can be and we know of the significant and potentially life-threatening impact it can have upon those affected. “We are receiving an increasing number of first-hand accounts from holidaymakers who stayed at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel this summer who have concerns about hygiene standards at the resort. Many clients fell ill with serious gastrointestinal symptoms which, for many, have required hospital admissions. “Our investigations are continuing but it is vital, where possible, that lessons are learned from this case to ensure that holidaymakers do not face such hygiene problems in the future. “We would be interested in speaking to any other guests who have stayed at this hotel over the last few months to provide us with further information and eye-witness accounts of the issues reported at the hotel in order to assist us with our investigations.”

    Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel Hurghada: Irwin Mitchell Instructed By 16 Holidaymakers To Investigate Egyptian Hotel

    We are advising a growing group of holidaymakers caught up in these problems. We have heard a number of concerning first-hand accounts from people who were staying at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel this summer and who fell ill with serious gastrointestinal symptoms which, for many, have required hospital admissions. “We are now investigating these accounts to determine the cause of illness. As part of our investigations we would like to hear from other guests who may have information about conditions at the hotel this summer. “Sadly, this is not the first occasion where we have been instructed to act for holidaymakers who have suffered illness, including Salmonella, following stays at this hotel, as we also represent people who have fallen ill with serious gastric illness in 2016 and 2017. “However, it is important to stress that the investigation into the sad deaths of John and Susan Cooper is continuing by the tour operator and the authorities. Therefore, it would be inappropriate at this stage to draw any comparisons between our investigations and those being carried out by the Egyptian authorities, or to speculate as to whether this is a link to this issues which we have been advised of.”
