How to claim for giardiasis holiday illness compensation

If youve been diagnosed with giardiasis on holiday, you could be entitled to claim thousands of pounds in holiday illness compensation.

Giardiasis causes severe symptoms of illness and any holidaymakers affected by the infection will know that it can quickly ruin a holiday. Despite this, many people are unaware of the amount of the compensation that they may be entitled to claim.
In our latest article, we take a look at how you can claim for giardiasis holiday illness compensation with the expert solicitors at Your Holiday Claims.

Seek medical attention

If you havent already, you should seek medical attention if you begin to suffer symptoms diarrhoea, cramps, bloating and nausea. If your child has had six or more episodes of diarrhoea in a 24 hour period, you should request that they see a doctor.
Your health is the most important thing. If you are diagnosed with giardiasis, it will most likely be treated with antibiotic medicine to kill the parasite. If you do receive any medication or pay any medical bills you should keep a record of these. The cost of any medical treatment you receive can be recovered as part of your holiday illness compensation claim.

Report your illness to at your hotel or on your return home

It is important that you report your illness either in the hotel or if this isnt possible, when you return home. By making your tour operator aware that you have suffered giardiasis, you will guarantee that there is a record of your illness. This can be beneficial if you choose to bring a holiday illness claim on your return home.

Talk to other guests at the hotel

Giardiasis is spread through drinking contaminated water and through eating food which has been contaminated by an infected person or washed in infected water.
This means that you have been diagnosed with giardiasis on holiday, it is likely that other people in your hotel will have suffered a similar illness. If you do speak to anyone who has suffered a similar illness, you could bring a group claim on your return to the UK.
When you bring a group holiday illness claim, it becomes much more difficult for the tour operator to deny liability for the outbreak of illness. This can help you receive the holiday illness compensation that you deserve.
