If you are visiting this page there is a strong possibility you have suffered from illness on holiday and are seeking an experienced Holiday Illness Claims Experts specialist advice.
Recovering substantial compensation for our clients is what our reputation is built on - and our reputation is second to none.
Your case will not be handled by just anybody – your holiday claim will be handled by a dedicated and highly skilled lawyer and a team of experts in the field of personal injury claims involving holidaymakers who suffer illness abroad whilst on holiday through food poisoning, poor standards of hygiene and contaminated swimming pools at hotels.
The infections are bacterial and avoidable if reasonable standards of food hygiene and water treatment are upheld.
Claiming compensation for illness on holiday can seem a daunting prospect.
Where do you start? How much compensation will I get? How much will the legal fees cost?
Suffering from illness while on holiday is devastating. You have worked hard to save for your holiday. You have precious little quality time with your family. You have gone without to put money aside to pay for what should have been a wonderful time.
Why should you sit in silence when the food at the expensive hotel is stone cold and covered in insects?
Why should you and your family accept shoddy and damp accommodation not fit for an animal?
Why should you put up with a swimming pool that is dirty and so murky you can’t see the bottom?
The answer is you don’t have to put up with it. The Package Travel [Etc] Regulations 1992 provide people who purchase “package holidays” with powerful consumer protection.
Your tour operator is responsible for providing the services that make up your holiday to a reasonable standard and they are liable to pay compensation if those services fall below a reasonable standard.
At Simpson Millar we manage large class actions involving often many hundreds of holiday makers who shared the same experience.
We have recently won compensation for large groups who become ill during their holidays in the Dominican Republic – Cuba and Mexico.
It is not uncommon for a whole hotel to be struck by an illness bug resulting in frequent instances of hundreds of holiday makers falling ill. This seems to happen at all-inclusive hotels when a contaminated batch of food might be served or the swimming pool has been polluted.
If you were at a hotel where almost everyone seemed to fall ill then contact us and see just how much you can claim.
Other Holiday Village resorts our specialist Claims team have won compensation for clients include the Rhodes Holiday Village following a mass sickness outbreak in 2010 and the Golden Beach Holiday Village in the Dominican Republic further to an illness bug that swept the resort in 2009.
When you travel abroad on holiday you let your guard down and expect the same standards of hygiene that you are accustomed to here in the UK.
So what should you look out for?
These are only a few ways in which bacteria can be innocently ingested which then leads to illness. The typical symptoms being diarrhoea – vomiting – stomach cramps – fever – headaches – aching joints and nausea.
