Legionnaires’ disease is a water droplet infection and it is important to be aware of the symptoms and sources of Legionella – Legionnaires’ disease is a very serous illness and 10% of cases prove fatal:

  • Legionella bacteria thrive in water systems, shower heads and air conditioning units which have not been cleaned and disinfected regularly
  • Large premises are usually affected by Legionella bacteria, such as hotels and sometimes prisons, hospitals, offices and schools
  • Legionella can also live in freshwater ponds and rivers, water features and fountains, windscreen wiping equipment, spas and Jacuzzis and any water-based system.

Freephone: 0808 145 1353 or drop us a line using the form above.

The amount of any claim for Legionellosis will depend on the severity of the symptoms you developed, including:

hotel watch
  • High fever and headache
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Dry cough which may produce sputum
  • Loss of appetite, sickness and diarrhoea
  • Skin and other infections

The symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease are often confused with flu symptoms – and those with a weakened immune system are especially vulnerable, including elderly holidaymakers, smokers and people with chronic illnesses.

If you have contracted Legionnaire’s disease while on holiday, get in touch now for a fee assessment of your case and eligibility to make a claim for Legionnaires’ disease compensation.
