If you were taken ill on a package holiday due to food poisoning, were sick because the swimming pool at your hotel was filthy, or injured yourself due to the negligence of hotel staff, you can claim compensation.

We have specialist solicitors representing holiday makers who have been diagnosed with the bacterial infections following holidays abroad ie:

  • Salmonella
  • Campylobacter
  • Cryptosporidium
  • E. Coli
  • Shigella

Symptoms of these infections include diarrhoea, stomach cramps and vomiting. In some cases, these illnesses lead to long term debilitating secondary conditions such as a reactive arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome or chronic fatigue syndrome.

There are various reasons why you may fall ill or injure yourself during your holiday, some of which are highlighted below;

  • Food being served luke-warm
  • Food not being cooked thoroughly
  • Food that has been reheated or left standing for far too long
  • Flies and insects contaminating food
  • Birds and other animals being permitted to contaminate food service areas
  • Infected or ill food handlers touching and preparing food
  • Ice which has not been prepared using filtered water
  • Salads and fruit washed in tap water
  • Swimming pools which have not been cleaned to any reasonable standard
  • Wet floors in the hotel may cause you to slip
  • Loose tiles in the hotel may cause you to trip and injury yourself

Whether you were on an all-inclusive, package holiday or just a night away at a hotel, we can help you claim compensation. We will help you claim compensation from the most popular package holiday and tour operators including Air Tours, British Airways, Direct Holidays UK, Thomas Cook, Tui, Thomson, First Choice, Monarch, Sky Tours and Co-Operative Travel.

These sort of holiday sickness / injury cases affect thousands of people each year. Holidays booked through UK tour operators are generally covered by The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992. In essence, this means that your transport, accommodation and food whilst on holiday are all covered by British legislation.
