Claiming in the UK for sickness abroad

sick sid

For most of us a holiday is a once a year, long awaited and hard earned break – an opportunity to totally relax and spend time with the family.

Illness on holiday can be devastating and can, in some cases, lead to long term health problems and loss of income.

Your Holiday Claims, a division of Farnworth Rose Solicitors has a dedicated team of experienced professionals who have many years experience of successfully dealing with claims for holidaymakers who have contracted food poisoning during their package holiday.

If your holiday has been ruined by an outbreak of food poisoning, you can find out how our dedicated compensation solicitors can help,

The Package Travel Regulations 1992 protect the holidaymaker – and claims for compensation can be brought here in the UK against the tour operator who sold the holiday to you.  The Regulations also state that the tour operator is responsible for the faults of its suppliers e.g the hotel.  If poor food handling practices or poor hygiene procedures at the hotel are the cause of your holiday illness, you should be able to make a successful claim against the tour operator with our help.

What Illnesses Are Suffered By Holidaymakers?

There are many types of bacteria and other organisms which can cause severe Gastroenteritis, the following being the ones most commonly linked to holiday illness:

  • Campylobacter
  • Cryptosporidium
  • E. Coli
  • Giardia
  • Norovirus
  • Salmonella
  • Shigella

“Most holidaymakers are unaware they can claim compensation in the UK for an illness they suffer abroad. I have worked for two of the largest tour operators in the UK. I know how they operate and I have handled many successful cases against them. Some people fail to make a claim because they don´t think it is worth it, and others feel embarrassed at the thought of discussing their symptoms. We put all of our clients at ease straight away and guide them through the claims process with as little stress as possible, ensuring they receive the compensation they deserve.”

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
