Claimant wins £3,000 Award after Suffering Sickness in Egyptian Resort

Simpson Millar Solicitors have won another case involving Food Poisoning while holidaying abroad.

The company that specialises in compensation for holidaymakers were approached by Mr and Mrs Hillson who claimed they got ill from what they believed to be food poisoning while away and residing at the Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt.

Holiday Sickness

Their case can be read at Simpson Millar’s Manchester offices.

Both the Northamptonshire couple fell ill during their holiday at the Egyptian resort and called Simpson Millar on their return claiming the experience had marred their otherwise enjoyable holiday.

One of Simpson Millar's experienced Holiday Illness Claims Specialists Simon Lomax took on the Hillson's case. When approached, the operator who oversaw the holiday was happy to agree to a settlement of £3,000 out of court.

This fair result was welcomed by Mr Hillson who accepted the compensation payment by praising Simpson Millar's service saying: "I was thoroughly satisfied with every aspect".

Mr Hillson also complimented Simon Lomax in particular saying how he came as across as 'extremely helpful, patient with our enquiries and dealt with the whole case in exemplary fashion.'

Simon Lomax said: "I was happy that Mr and Mrs Hillson got the compensation they deserved and were satisfied with the service that Simpson Millar provided.

Holiday Hotel Watch

"I am sorry to say that their case is not an isolated one - many people fall ill while on holiday abroad due to poor standards of hygiene at hotels. Every year we deal with hundreds of cases of Salmonella, E. Coli and Campylobacter and Cryptosporidiosis.

"These infections are avoidable if tour operators and hotels exercise reasonable care.

"Thankfully the UK has some very good consumer laws. The Package Travel Regulations enable holidaymakers to claim compensation for injuries and illness if the holiday was arranged through a package tour company such as Thomson Holidays, Thomas Cook or First Choice".

Holiday claims need not be as stressful as the situations you endured while on vacation so contact Simpson Millar to discuss your case and see if there is an opportunity open to them to pursue your claim on a no win or no fee basis.
