If your holiday abroad has been ruined by an outbreak of illness, you could be entitled to bring a claim for compensation with other holidaymakers at your hotel.
The most common causes of illness in package holiday hotels are food poisoning and contaminated swimming pool and drinking water. This often means that if you have fallen ill on holiday, it is likely that other holidaymakers will be suffering similar symptoms.
How can I bring a group holiday illness claim?
If your holiday has been ruined by illness on a package holiday in the past 3 years, you will be entitled to bring a claim against your tour operator on your return to the UK.
By making a group holiday illness claim, it becomes much more difficult for your tour operator to deny liability for the outbreak of illness.
At Your Holiday Claims, our experienced holiday claims solicitors regularly help groups of holidaymakers claim the compensation they deserve after widespread outbreak in package hotels around the world.
The first thing we would recommend is that you report your illness to the tour operator representative at your hotel. They should fill out a sickness form to document your illness. Ask them for a copy of this as it can be used to support your claim.
We would also recommend speaking to other British holidaymakers who have been affected by the illness at your hotel. By exchanging contact details, you can agree to pass on your claim to the same solicitor on your return home.
Will making a group claim affect the compensation I receive?
Even though your claim is brought as part of a group, the expert solicitors at Your Holiday Claims will still negotiate settlement based on the individual circumstances of your case.
The holiday illness compensation you receive will still be dependent on the severity of your illness, the number of days lost of your holiday and any out of pocket expenses you incurred.
At Your Holiday Claims, our goal is to achieve the best possible settlement for each individual case we handle.
By bringing your claim as a group, you will have many other holidaymakers to back up your claim, which can reduce the time it takes for you to receive the compensation you deserve.
