Has food poisoningÂ on holiday ruined your hard-earned break?
Food poisoning as a result of poor hotel standards usually happens when all-inclusive buffet style food in hotel restaurants is not stored, served or cooked correctly.
Food poisoningÂ a quite common form of holiday illness and is caused when food that has been contaminated with bacterium such as salmonella, E. coli or by viruses such as the Norovirus is consumed.
The main symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps, however you can also experience aching muscles, a fever, weakness and a loss of appetite.
These symptoms usually occur a couple of days prior to consuming contaminated food, and most of the time symptoms will pass over a few days without any specific treatment.
Hotels in Mexico, Spain, Cuba and the Dominican Republic have been in the spotlight over the past few years for food poisoning outbreaks, usually caused by food served at buffets where poor standards of health and hygiene may exist.
Here at YourHolidayClaims, we help hundreds of holidaymakers every year to obtain the compensation they deserve after beingÂ affected by food poisoning on holiday. You can read more on how we help holidaymakers make a food poisoning abroad claim here.
What to do when food poisoning strikes
Your condition is paramount when you fall victim to food poisoning on holiday.
Although most cases of food poisoning pass without any medical treatment, if your symptoms progress to a severe stage or you begin to suffer from additional symptoms such as dehydration, it is important that you seek local medical attention as soon as possible.
We would also advise that holidaymakers never accept an offer of compensation directly from the tour operator, as you could be entitled to much more.
Finally, we strongly advise that you take a numberÂ of precautionary measures to ensure that you have the best possible chance of making a claim for compensation on your return home.
