£9,335 compensation for Family’s Dominican Holiday Illness Ordeal


Simpson Millar Solicitors expert Travel Claims Solicitors successfully claim compensation for families whose holidays are marred by sickness caused by waterborne parasites and Food Poisoning!

Mrs. Tandy’s case study is genuine and available for inspection at Simpson Millar LLP’s Manchester office.

After falling ill whilst on holiday in the Dominican Republic with Giardiasis, the Tandy family from Blaina in Gwent are expecting to receive over £9,000 in compensation for their holiday from hell after accepting the settlement proposal put forward by their tour operator.

Holiday Illness Claims Expert, Simon Lomax, took on the Tandy’s cases on a no win no fee basis shortly after they returned home.

Asked to sum up the advice they received Mrs. Tandy said; “We always received clear advice and Simpson Millar were always dedicated to acting in our bests interests.”

Referring to Simon Lomax Mrs. Tandy stated; ”He is easy to speak to and always explained things clearly.”

Asked if she would recommend Simpson Millar’s Holiday Illness Claims team Mrs. Tandy said, “Yes” and continued to explain that she was very satisfied with the outcome of her family’s compensation claim against Thomas Cook.

Giardiasis Infection - Dominican Republic

Simon said: “Giardiasis is a nasty infection caused by a parasite that is ingested from faecal-oral transmission or contaminated water – many travellers become ill on holiday because of poorly maintained and infected swimming pool water.”

“We are currently assisting many other travellers who have had the misfortune to fall ill whilst on holiday in the Dominican Republic because of either Food Poisoning or the ingestion of faecally contaminated water.”

“In most cases the problem of waterborne infection is due to Cryptosporidium or Giardia Lamblia, but occasionally E. Coli is the implicated holiday illness bug.”

“The Package Travel [etc.] Regulations 1992 protect holidaymakers who purchase regulated holidays through reputable tour operators such as Thomson Holiday, Thomas Cook, Virgin Holidays and First Choice Holidays”.

“If a holidaymaker falls ill with Giardiasis because of contaminated pool water at a Dominican hotel or elsewhere because of poor hygiene standards then compensation can be claimed from those responsible.”

Simpson Millar Solicitors are leading Holiday Illness Claims Specialists and accept compensation claims on no win no fee terms.
