Holiday Illness Claims
We are specialists in making compensation claims for holiday illness
Was your holiday ruined by sickness or injury? If you have been on a packaged holiday and you were taken ill whilst on holiday you may be able to claim compensation.
Under the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tour Regulations 1992, your tour operator is responsible for making sure that the services which make up the package holiday i.e. accommodation, transport and food are provided with reasonable skill and care. If you suffer from food poisoning whilst on holiday your tour operator is responsible. In order to make a claim under these Regulations you will need to demonstrate that your tour operator has fallen below the expected skill and care in relation to the standards in the country where your illness or accident occurred.
Illness and accidents on holiday can vary greatly, they can include food poisoning, slips and trips, illness from dirty swimming pool. If you have suffered any kind of illness such as Salmonella, E.coli, irritable bowel syndrome during a packaged holiday contact us today for further advice and assistance.
