Simon Lomax, Simpson Millar Solicitors’ Holiday Illness Manager states:

"We are already pursuing claims on behalf of a large number of holiday makers that returned from First Choice’s Holiday Village, Sarigerme, Turkey with bacterial infections such as CampylobacterSalmonella - Cryptosporidium and ear infections in 2009. The tour operator, First Choice is still in the process of investigating these compensation claims some 12 months after the event!"

"We have previously won compensation for holiday makers who suffered sickness at the Holiday Village Turkey in 2008."

"Recent reviews suggested First Choice Holidays had rectified hygiene issues but we are now finding holiday-makers approaching us once again with campylobacter, bacteria commonly linked to food poisoning and particularly undercooked chicken."

Simon continues to say:

"Many holiday makers have suggested that the complex is far too big to monitor closely. We are therefore not surprised that TUI is intent on separating the two hotels which currently accommodate holiday makers in the Holiday Village Turkey, re-branding one side the Hotel Tropical under the Thomson Holiday brand for summer 2011."

Holidaymakers are contacting Simpson Millar Solicitors intent on claiming compensation for illnesses experienced at a number of First Choice’s flagship Holiday Villages including the Holiday Village Turkey in Sarigerme – the Holiday Village Red Sea in Egypt and the Holiday Village Costa Del Sol in Spain.

First Choice is currently offering 9 Holiday Villages in summer 2010: Costa Del Sol – Turkey – Rhodes – Algarve - Viva (Majorca) - Red Sea (Egypt) - Flamingo Beach (Lanzarote) and Aliathon (Cyprus).
