Salmonella Food Poisoning at the Suntopia Pegasos Royal in Turkey – Holiday Illness Claims Success


Simpson Millar Solicitors have been instructed by holidaymakers returning from the Suntopia Pegasos Royal in Turkey, whose holidays have been marred by Salmonella Infection.

The troubles in Egypt have seen Turkey re-emerge as the UK’s holiday illness hot spot in 2011, with many holidaymakers returning with SalmonellaE. Coli or Campylobacter Food Poisoning.

Simon Lomax, the firms Holiday Illness Claims manager says:

“We have helped many travellers on package holidays claim compensation from their tour operators on a No Win No Fee basis.”

“Children as young as four years old have been affected by the recent spate of holiday illness at the Pegasos Royal! The Environmental Health Authority will inevitably have to be notified, as  Salmonella Food Poisoning is a communicable disease.”

Salmonella infections are often caused by Food Poisoning, poor hygiene, tour operator or hotel negligence. The symptoms can be debilitating especially amongst the elderly and children, and they include profuse diarrhoea, dehydration, vomiting, headaches and fever.”

Salmonellosis, the medical term for the illness, suffered by those who ingest the salmonella bacteria, can easily be prevented by cooking, serving and storing food at temperatures recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO).”

Simon continues to say:

“Holidaymakers returning from the Pegasos Royal ill with either First Choice or Thomson Holidays are able to rely on powerful consumer protection regulation in the form of the 1992 Package Travel Regulations. Travellers are often able to claim holiday compensation directly from their tour operator for what is termed ‘an improper performance of the contract’ if they suffer from salmonellosis on regulated holidays.”

“Holidaymakers are advised to seek immediate treatment from their GP as salmonella food poisoning can lead to secondary conditions, such as, irritable bowel syndrome, reactive arthritis and milk intolerance if left untreated.”

If you have returned from the Suntopia Pegasos Royal with an illness, and are suffering from the symptoms described above, our holiday lawyers are able help you claim compensation from First Choice or Thomson Holidays.
