Illness and Food Poisoning

Contracting salmonella food poisoning on holiday because chicken has not been cooked properly or ecoli because vegetables have not been washed thoroughly are no laughing matter and certainly illnesses that are avoidable. These bacterial infections (and other common types such as amoebic dysentery and shigella) with their symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting are very upsetting, ruin holidays and can prove to be a frightening experience for those who require medical treatment.

All Inclusive

When food poisoning at an all inclusive hotel strikes it often affects many people. Our Claim Specialists are used to handling group action claims involving large numbers of holiday makers who have been sick or ill at the same hotel because the food was not fit for human consumption.

Being ill or sick on holiday because of someone else’s lack of care should not happen and the Package Travel Regulations 1992 give you a legal right to claim compensation if they become ill due to food poisoning or because their hotel was unclean.

Salmonella at Cuban Hotel

£3,750 Holiday Illness Compensation - Mr A of Colchester who contracted Salmonella food poisoning has been awarded £3,750 in compensation. Mr A became ill during a holiday at the Sol Cayo Guillermno Hotel in Caya Guillermno. Thomas Cook settled the claim out of court.

We carefully monitor hotels in Cuba and our Hotel-Watch section is dedicated to highlighting hotels we have recently been contacted about regarding outbreaks of sickness.

Accidents in Cuba
