If your holiday has been ruined by an outbreak of food poisoning on holiday, the expert solicitors at Your Holiday Claims can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
Every year outbreaks of food poisoning in package holiday hotels affect thousands of holidaymakers, leaving them suffering severe symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea.
When sickness outbreaks at all-inclusive hotels do occur, affected holidaymakers are entitled to bring a claim directly against their tour operator.
In our latest article, expert holiday claim solicitors at Your Holiday Claims look at how we can help you make a successful claim.
What should you do after suffering food poisoning on holiday?
If you are still in resort after suffering food poisoning on holiday, there are a number of steps you can take to help you make a claim on your return home.
Report your illness to your tour operator
At Your Holiday Claims, we always recommend that you report your illness to a tour operator representative and request a copy of their report. This can be used as evidence if you choose to bring a no win no fee claim in the UK.
Speak to other guests at the hotel
If you have been unfortunate enough to have been struck by food poisoning on holiday, it is likely that others in your hotel will be suffering similar symptoms of illness.
By speaking to anyone else who has been affected and exchanging contact details, you will be able to bring a group holiday illness claim against the tour operator. This can strengthen your case as it becomes much more difficult for the tour operator to deny liability. You can find out more about bringing a group holiday illness claim here.
Visit your GP on your return home
If you are continuing to be affected by symptoms of food poisoning after returning home, you should make an appointment to visit your GP.
Your GP will most likely carry out tests to determine what has caused your illness and recommend the best course of treatment.
