Thomas Cook Pays £20,800 for Shigella Illness Victims at the Tropicana Azure Club

Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors recently secured compensation for 8 holidaymakers struck down by severe gastroenteritis whilst staying at the Tropicana Azure Club resort in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.

The holidaymakers who booked a package holiday through Thomas Cook, the 2nd largest UK leading tour operator, developed symptoms consistent with dysentery, an issue which was later confirmed after tests revealed the bacterial pathogen, Shigella Sonnei.

Holiday Food Poisoning Claims

The holidaymakers concerned suffered symptoms which included profuse diarrhoea, stomach cramps, fever, tiredness, fatigue and headaches which lasted for several days.

It was against this background that Simpson Millar LLP Travel Lawyers sent compensation claims to Thomas Cook whose solicitors subsequently denied responsibility. After obtaining further medical evidence it was found that all 8 holidaymakers had suffered from severe infective gastroenteritis, one of which had mild on-going post-infective irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Thomas Cook Food Poisoning Claims

Holiday Hotel Watch

Thomas Cook’s solicitors continued to be difficult by repeatedly failing to disclose all the relevant documentation and court proceedings were prepared and served on Thomas Cook.

Despite the robust stance taken by Thomas Cook’s lawyers in defending these holiday illness claims for bacterial food poisoning, Simpson Millar LLP recovered a substantial amount of compensation with the claim for a child being approved by a District Judge to ensure it was sufficient.

Simpson Millar LLP is already handling a multitude of claims against Thomas Cook for illness.
