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.

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.

    ‘Urgent Action Vital’ After Legionella Concerns Emerge At Dewsbury Care Home

    “In recent years, many of our cases have highlighted the devastating impact that Legionnaires’ disease can have on victims, often leaving them with long-term health conditions and in some cases even proving fatal. “Care homes, hotels and businesses of all kinds are responsible for the proper and effective management of legionella bacteria which can emerge in water systems, so it is very worrying that this report found the site in question was failing to do so. “Such issues put elderly residents, who are some of the most vulnerable in society, and employees at serious risk of harm and it is simply unacceptable. With this in mind, it is vital that this care home takes action urgently to ensure standards are improved and safety is made a top priority.”
