Over £5000 for Ruined Majorca Holiday
Have you suffered food poisining while on holiday?
If you have food poisoning, you may be able to establish a claim against the operator if it is contracted to provide you with food as part of the holiday package. However, if you purchased additional food not included within the price of the holiday, you may find yourself in difficulty because it would be hard to show that the tour operator was responsible for the provision of the food that made you ill.
If, however, you can show that you fell ill with food poisoning contracted as a result of eating contaminated food provided as part of the holiday package, you have good prospects of persuading the tour operator to compensate you for your lost holiday. The amount of compensation will depend upon the severity of your illness and how long you take to recover.
We recently took instructions from a ‘Ms H’ from Urmston who had been on holiday to Majorca. She was on an expensive all-inclusive package which was her first family holiday with her children. Unfortunately, she contracted food poisoning as a consequence of badly cooked meat at the hotel and both her and her family were very ill whilst on holiday. As you can imagine this ruined the remainder of their holiday and they continued to be ill after they returned. At Treadstone Law we claimed against the holiday company who initially denied liability. After our intervention they went on to make a generous offer of over £5,000 which adequately compensated her for the cost of the holiday and damages for food poisoning.
