About norovirus

Norovirus is a viral infection that affects the stomach and intestines. It is usually passed on through contaminated food and water, or through contact with ill people or surfaces/objects that have been touched by those with the illness.

The most common symptoms include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • High temperature
  • Stomach cramps
  • Headache
  • Aching muscles

In severe cases, dehydration can occur. If this does happen, patients should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Who is responsible?

Often, when an illness is contracted, it is because of a lack of health and safety - surfaces not being cleaned properly or inadequate cleaning materials used. When this happens, the management may be responsible for the illness sustained. Falling ill on holiday means you may suffer a financial burden from having to access medical attention abroad, or through being unable to work while you recover. We will also help you recover the cost, or at least part of, the cost of your holiday.

Making a claim for compensation

When claiming compensation for contracting an illness abroad, it is important to have a solicitor on your side who is an expert in the field. YouClaim are specialists in holiday illness claims and the team have accumulated years of experience dealing with this type of case.

The most important thing is to secure strong proof, as soon as possible, which will link the contracting of your illness to the source of the illness. The Package Travel, Package Holidays and the Package Tours Regulations 1992 can assist those who can trace their illness back to the hotel they were staying in, and our team can discuss other possibilities with you, if you believe your illness is the result of something eaten outside the hotel.
