Food poisoning on family holiday

Compensation: £4,424

Our customer was on a package holiday at a hotel complex with her children and they had all been enjoying the swimming pool. However, they fell ill with sickness and diarrhoea just a few days into their holiday.

They were diagnosed with a stomach bug, and the family discovered that other holidaymakers also suffered from the illness.

When the family came back to England, they decided to make a claim because their holiday had been totally ruined by the stomach bug and their tour operator was not being cooperative. They contacted us and we agreed to undertake their case.

Our solicitors found that tests had been carried out on the swimming pool following complaints from other visitors and it had tested positive for the Cryptosporidium parasite. The tour operator who arranged the hotel admitted liability and a settlement of £4,424 was agreed for the claim
