  • J Williams

    From the moment we rung Versus Law and spoke to the receptionist on the phone to the moment we completed on our first home, Versus Law were excellent. Our solicitor was Tom and not only did he keep us updated every step of the way but he was very professional, efficient, offered valuable advice and made the process of buying a house stress free. We couldn’t recommend Versus Law enough and we just wanted to say a huge thank you to Tom and the team. Joe and Kara

  • H Cooper

    We would highly recommend Versus law, especially Nick Wintrip (selling) and Nicola Nolan (buying). They both kept us up to date throughout the whole process. They were easy to get hold of and were very prompt to answer any questions/email. We would have no hesitation in recommending Versus law for conveyancing.

Thanks again to Nicola, Nick and Francine

    Excellent service from start to finish from Nicola and Natalie! Super responsive to emails and all my questions as a first time single buyer. Natalie and Nicola make a great team and are so approachable. Definitely recommend them for property related legal services.

  • Frankie

    Really happy with my experience using versus law, from start to finish they put my mind at ease as I wasn’t buying a house in the normal way, it was through a family divorce and there were time scales and dead lines to meet, versus law managed to conker my mortgage and speed things up to avoid any extra costs, nicola was always there to ease my mind when I had any concerns as things do get stressful whilst purchasing a property, the ladies on the reception we also a delight and couldn’t do more to make you feel comfortable in any situation, if you are thinking of using versus law to assist you through your mortgage then look no further as these guys couldn’t have done more for me, I couldn’t have been happier with my experience

  • Matt W

    Nicola Nolan’s conveyancing service has always been excellent, I have used them several times in the last 5 years. In particular for my business I have found their relationship and understanding of Paragon Bank to be very useful. I would highly recommend.

  • Kay

    Excellent decision to go with Versus Law! Nick Wintrip handled the very stressful job of our house sale with professionalism, calmness and a good sense of humour. We did everything via email, phone and post, and he was always quick in responding and keeping me updated every step of the way. Very competitively priced too. I would highly recommend Versus Law without the slightest hesitation.

  • Colin and Yvonne

    Absolutely brilliant service as always.
    This is the third time using Versuslaw and they never fail to impress. Natalie and Nicola are real diamonds and you really get the sense that they actually care about you.

    We actually live in London, but continued to use them for our London property because of our previous experience with them.
    Thank you guys, would highly recommend you to anyone.

  • B Man

    Excellent service!!! We are really happy with the service VersusLaw provided to us. Being first time buyer, we dint have much idea about the whole process and had lots of questions. They have given proper and clear response on time to everything we have requested. For us, one of the property got cancelled in between the process because the owner decided to not to sell that property few days after accepting our offer. Though there were searches and procedures done already for that property VersusLaw did not ask Fee for that purchase as they understood the difficult situation we were in. When we found our next property, we had no doubt whom to contact. We are really happy and totally satisfied by the service Nicola, Natalie and their team offered. We will highly recommend your service to anyone,

  • Ross Grant

    Today I have completed on the purchase of my very first apartment, and it just wouldn’t have been possible without the INCREDIBLE knowledge, guidance and GENUINE care of Nicola, Natalie, and the entire Versus Law team.

    This purchase was far from straightforward, with lots of potential pitfalls – all navigated with professionalism, patience and an impeccable attention to detail by Nicola.

    Nic went well above and beyond the call of duty to look into some extremely complex accounts and repair budgets to the apartment block in question – something I would have completely overlooked.

    As a result, with her guidance, I managed to negotiate a £2,000 reduction in asking price – something I’m sure other solicitors would have let slip through the net.

    That’s a genuine £2000 saving – a lot of money for a first-time buyer.

    You get a real sense that these guys actually CARE – they make you feel more like a friend, than a client – and don’t leave a stone unturned when it comes to conveyancing. If there is anything to uncover on a property, trust me, Nicola will find it!

    In essence, Versus Law made what could have been a rather stressful situation, easy and straightforward.

    Communications and response times were brilliant, with daily updates coming via phone and email – and I never felt rushed by anyone when I had queries.

    I honestly cannot recommend Versus Law enough.

    I’m going to pick up the keys to my apartment now – and won’t be using anyone other than these guys for all future property purchases/ sales.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH Versus Law – I’ll be raising a glass of champagne to you all at the housewarming! 🙂

  • CW

    Great service provided by Nicola and her team.
    Always communicating with updates for the completion of my property.
    Would highly recommend

  • Jackie

    I used Versus Law to buy my first house. Had no idea how it worked but I must say that the conveyancing team held my hand all the way through. On the day of completion there was a delay and they stayed in office late to ensure it went through so I wasn’t waiting over the weekend. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Versus Law and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. It was nice to speak to people who I felt cared for me and put my interests first at all times. Thank you so much for your help

  • Andy

    Versus were great to deal with when they provided the conveyancing for my house purchase. I was able to complete the process without needing to physically travel to their offices and my solicitor was always available for any questions when I was completing all the paperwork. Everyone was very friendly to speak to.

  • T Baguley

    Fantastic conveyancing service from Nicola and Natalie, they kept on top of everything from start to finish and were always available whenever we had questions. I’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.

  • David JC

    Very impressed with every aspect of Versus Law, from service they provide to the attitude of the staff. Always called back when they said they would and had a laugh with them too. Will definately use again (if I need to).

  • Mrs Morris

    I would recommend Versus Law to anyone, particularly Nick Wintrip, who looked after us extremely well. They are very efficient and communicated with us fully at all times. We were able to contact them by phone and e mail and did not need to rely on letter going back and forth. Nick is really friendly too and put us at ease throughout the end to end sales process. Thank you.

  • Tanita

    Nicola and Natalie did a wonderful job. They were friendly and patient. Answered my many many questions and got the job done very efficiently. I am highly impressed and would definitely recommend them.

Denied Boarding Claim


Denied Boarding Compensation Claims

Anyone who has ever been denied boarding or bumped from a flight without a reasonable explanation may be entitled to compensation of as much as 600 Euros under EU Regulation EC 261/2004.

Denied boarding is a situation which prohibits passengers from boarding a flight even if they have a valid flight reservation and are on-time for check in. Another common term for such an eventuality is when a passenger is involuntarily ‘bumped’ from the flight.

An airline has the capability of booking you a seat on an alternative flight; should this flight encounter a delay of more than three hours you can also claim for compensation too

Should a passenger be denied boarding or be ‘bumped’ from the flight without a reasonable explanation, an airline must offer them an alternative flight or a full refund for the price of their flight ticket under EU Regulation EC 261/2004.

As nonpareil denied flight boarding compensation claim solicitors in Manchester, Versus Law has the experience to help passengers who have been denied boarding or bumped from a flight.

What Compensation Am I Entitled To?

If you have been denied boarding or have been bumped from a flight without reasonable explanation you can receive a reimbursement of the cost of your ticket. Airlines must give passengers the option of being reimbursed or offered a seat on the next available flight. Airlines must also compensate passengers for the cost of their meals and telephone usage whilst they wait for their flight.

Passengers can claim denied boarding compensation under EU Law if:

  • Your flight was from an EU airport
  • You have landed at an EU airport with an EU registered airline
  • You have reached your destination with a delay of no more than 3 hours
  • You checked in on-time or reached the airport gates on-time

It’s important to remember that reimbursement is not the same as compensation. Reimbursement is when passengers are refunded the total cost of their client. Compensation is money paid to cover any additional incurred costs to you or losses, including stress and lost holiday time.

How Much Denied Boarding Compensation Can I Receive?

The amount of denied flight boarding compensation – or compensation anywhere in the UK – is dependent on the length of the delay after you’ve been denied boarding and the distance travelled. Generally, the longer the delay and the longer the distance travelled, the greater the amount of compensation that you could be owed.

Versus Law is a solicitors in Manchester with significant experience helping clients to receive notable compensation and reimbursement if they have been denied boarding or bumped from a flight. We work tirelessly to help our clients to get the compensation they deserve and receive full reimbursement for any flight that they have been denied the opportunity to board. Are you curious about how much compensation you could? See the table below.

Length of Delay Travel Distance Compensation
Up to 3hrs Any distance None
3+ hrs Less than 1500km 250 Euros
3+ hrs Between 1500km and 3500km 400 Euros
3+ hrs More than 1500km and within the EU 400 Euros
3 to 4 hrs 3500+ km flying from an EU to a non-EU airport 300 Euros
4+ hrs 3500+ km flying from an EU to a non-EU airport 600 Euros

*Note: compensation is paid based in how late you arrive at your destination, not how late departure is.

No Win No Fee Denied Flight Boarding Claims

It’s important to understand that if the airline has given you the option of rerouting your flight, and the arrival of the new flight is within two hours of your originally scheduled time for short haul flights, three hours of medium haul flights and four hours of long haul flights, the compensation that you’re entitled to will decrease by 50%.

We offer a no win no fee denied flight boarding claims compensation service. This means that there is no upfront cost. You also won’t have to pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful.

Throughout your claim, our solicitors in Manchester will keep you informed of your claim’s progress. We will always also provide you with sound legal advice and communicate professionally with the airline.

FAQ

Q

HOW MUCH COMPENSATION CAN I CLAIM FROM THE AIRLINES?

The flight compensation amount is set by the EU Law, EU Regulation 261/2004. The amount will be based on the length of the delay and the flight distance. They are not related to the cost of your ticket, so whether you paid £50 or £1000 for your ticket, the amount of compensation stays the same.

Regulation (EC) 261/2004 states that all airlines should compensate passengers if a flight is heavily delayed or cancelled. They must also offer meals, refreshments and hotel accommodation (if appropriate) while you wait for a rearranged flight. It is the airlines duty to cover the transport costs between the hotel and airport, regardless of the costs incurred.  If the airline does not provide this service then keep all receipts so that you may to claim reimbursement from the airline.

Yes. The passenger is the only person who would be entitled to claim, not the person who paid for the ticket. (Unless that person was with you, in which case you would both be entitled to claim).  Provided the ticket was purchased and paid for and was not free.

Under the English law there is a time limit of six years to claim, so you cannot claim any further back than flights in the last six years.

If your flight departed more than three hours late but landed under three hours late by making up lost time in air within the journey, then you are not entitled to compensation. But if the flight departed and arrived more than three hours late then you are entitled to claim.

Check out our flight calculator to see if you have a valid claim.

Airlines refer to an ‘extraordinary circumstance’ as anything unexpected or outside of their control and they do not have to pay compensation if your delay was caused by “extraordinary circumstances”.

The following situations are considered extraordinary:

  • Industrial action: Strikes by ground staff and/or air traffic control
  • Political circumstances: Terror attacks, political unrest, security risks
  • Weather conditions: Heavy rains, snow, storms etc
  • Illness: Sick crew member or passenger
  • ​Delays caused by the airport staff (long queues during security checks)
  • Security risks

Technical faults do not count as examples of extraordinary circumstances.

It is impossible to give a 100% exact time scale on settlements as each case is different. Claims vary from as quickly as 2 weeks to as long as 8 months. It will depend on the type of claim and Airline but rest assured, our fully qualified team know the quickest way to secure compensation and will issue court proceedings against an airline as soon as it is necessary.

No. Versus Law will be acting on your behalf and will attend any hearing on your behalf if need be.
