Was your holiday in the Dominican Republic ruined by Salmonella food poisoning? Are you wishing to claim compensation for your illness abroad?
Your holiday to the Dominican Republic was expensive and you worked hard to save for it. Don’t allow your tour operator to escape their responsibility. If you or a family member were poisoned by food supplied at your Dominican hotel you have a right to be compensated.
The Package Travel Regulations 1992 make your tour operator responsible for every aspect of your holiday and this includes ensuring that the food supplied to you is fit for consumption. If the food served at your Dominican Republic hotel was contaminated by Salmonella then it was unfit and should not have been supplied to you.
Salmonella is a bacterial infection and can be avoided by good food handling and hygiene practices. Cooking food properly and storing it at the correct temperature are just two very basic measures that can substantially reduce the risk of food poisoning.
At Simpson Millar Solicitors our Holiday Claims team has more than 40 years of shared experience helping thousands of holidaymakers to make successful compensation claims for ruined holidays.
We recently won more than £500,000 for a group of holidaymakers who were struck by sickness and diarrhoea at a foreign hotel.
After falling ill with symptoms of Salmonella whilst on holiday in the Dominican Republic Mrs S Bishop of Southampton said after receiving more than £6,000 in compensation:
“Brilliant! Friendly, professional and always kept us up to date. Very thorough and made the whole process stress free, simple and got us a great result.”
Another satisfied client, Mrs D Spalding of Norfolk had to say:
“I wish to express my sincere thanks to all the staff for your support and help and for your outstanding service.” When asked to describe the service she had received Mrs Spalding replied; “Professional, prompt, organised, outstanding service - Direct and honest. I will definitely recommend you.”
