Hotel illness claims

If you and your family have booked a holiday with a UK travel company and contract an illness in a hotel you may be able to bring a compensation claim.

Contracting an illness in a hotel whilst on holiday may be the result of low standards of cleanliness and poor hygiene standards at the hotel where you are staying.  When you are on holiday your expect your surroundings to be safe and comfortable but if you contract food poisoning or other types of illness this can be far from the case.

Media reports of mass food poisoning outbreaks often describe unhygienic and unsanitary conditions in hotels and such conditions may provide the grounds for a successful compensation claim.

For many people a bout of food poisoning will not have any long-term health effects, but, for some, serious health problems can arise following food poisoning. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and immune-compromised are particularly vulnerable to food poisoning.

Our travel illness team has extensive experience in bringing successful food poisoning claims.  Partner, Michelle Victor, has successfully pursued legal action against Thompson Holidays where more than 1,000 holiday makers staying at the Bahia Prince Hotel in the Dominion Republic suffered food poisoning caused by salmonella,

A holiday illness compensation claim may include:
  • Damages for the injuries sustained
  • Costs relating to your medical treatment
  • Costs relating to missed flights
  • Loss of earnings
  • Care costs
