How to Claim Compensation for Legionnaire’s Disease
If you develop symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease as a result of poor conditions at your holiday hotel, resort or on board a cruise ship, you need to see a medical professional as soon as possible and get a proper diagnosis. You should also visit your GP after returning back to the UK, as their conclusions may serve as vital evidence to support your claim.
You can also boost your chances of succeeding with your claim by gathering evidence while you’re still on holiday. For example, photos and video footage of faulty water treatment systems, air conditioners or other potential sources of infection could be crucial in establishing liability.
Finding out if other holidaymakers have suffered with the same condition can also help to bolster your claim, so take their names and contact details, so witness statements can be obtained from them at a later date.
Your holiday tour operator is legally required to take reasonable steps to keep you and your family safe if you’re on a package holiday at an all-inclusive resort. So if we can prove they fell short in this duty and you became ill as a result, you could make a successful holiday sickness claim.
