£34,000 Holiday Village Costa del Sol Compensation Success

Simpson Millar’s Travel Team is pleased to confirm that a settlement has been reached with First Choice Holidays for 3 families who suffered illness at the Holiday Village Costa Del Sol in Benalmadena, Spain.

The 3 families whose children were affected by sickness and diarrhoea will receive a grand total of £34,000 as compensation for their ordeal - 2 members of this group were confirmed as suffering from the parasite, Cryptosporidium, shortly after they returned home.

This holiday illness bug is a communicable disease which we suspected originated from contaminated swimming pool water at the Holiday Village Costa Del Sol.

Simon Lomax, the firm’s Holiday Illness Claims manager says:

“Having finalised the settlement of the claims against First Choice Holidays I am concerned to read about other families returning from the hotel ill this autumn with similar symptoms to those suffered by our clients.”

“The problem appears to be happening again, with both children and adults currently returning with symptoms which include profuse diarrhoea, stomach cramps, headaches, fever and dehydration. These symptoms implicate the cryptosporidium bug once again.”

Simon continues to say:

"I can only assume that Thomson’s health and safety checks, auditing procedures, and investigations etc, have yet to identify the problem!”

"Thomson Holidays can be congratulated however for working with us to eventually settle these Holiday Claims and for compensating our clients fairly. However, we are obviously concerned that lessons not been learnt.”
