Compensation success for bedridden Bedfordshire family

Your Holiday Claims have helped a family from Bedfordshire secure £8,150 in holiday illness compensation after their stay at Holiday Village Algarve, Portugal was ruined by illness.

Jon Wright and Melissa Cannon looked forward to a well-earned holiday with their young family at First Choice’s extensive holiday village in May 2014 when sickness and diarrhoea left them bedridden with illness.

Sickness stricken mum Miss Cannon told our holiday claims experts of her alarm at witnessing “mould on the placemats” and “birds flying in and out” at the resort’s all-inclusive restaurant.

“We reported on the first day that the resort wasn’t what they advertised on the internet but they wanted £100 to move us” added Miss Cannon.

Symptoms Suffered By Guests At The Holiday Village Algarve

Symptoms of “nausea, sickness, diarrhoea and stomach cramps” left Miss Cannon and Mr Wright struggling to attend to their two young children, one of which also fell ill at the resort.

The ill-fated family of four were also not the only ones to suffer poor health at the resort.

Over 40 British holidaymakers have contacted the holiday illness specialists at Your Holiday Claims to pursue a claim for compensation and report hazardous standards hygiene at the First Choice resort.

With the help of Your Holiday Claims, Mr Wright, Miss Cannon and their family have successfully recovered £8,150 holiday illness compensation.

Sue Robinson, holiday illness expert and solicitor dealing with the case, commented: “I am very pleased to have helped Mr Wright and Miss Cannon to secure compensation following their ruined stay at Holiday Village Algarve.

“We continue to hear from countless families who have suffered illness due to poor hygiene at this and other Holiday Village resorts and strongly advise any British holidaymakers affected to seek expert legal advice on pursuing a claim.

Your Holiday Claims client Jon Wright commented: “We are so pleased with the service Your Holiday Claims provided. Thank you Sue and the team for all your help.

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.

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.
