Hotel hygiene standards leads to salmonella claim
Salmonella food poisoning is a bacterial infection which travel solicitors claimspoils hundreds of holidays for many UK travellers every year. … Symptoms of food poisoning include diarrhoea, stomach cramps; headaches; fever; and nausea.
Treadstone Law recently took instructions from “Miss P” who had been on an all-inclusive holiday to Tunisia and as a consequence of the poor hygiene standards in the hotel she contracted salmonella, which resulted in diarrhoea and vomiting and naturally ruined her holiday.
Package holiday rules and regulations state that “a Tour Operator is responsible for the negligent supply of food, drinks, accommodation, etc which results in harm to the person enjoying the holiday”. This particularly applies if you become ill as a result of poor hygiene standards.
We are experts in this area of the law and we vigorously pursued a claim against the tour company for damages and succeeded.
If you contracted a virus while from food consumed in your hotel, we need to be able to show that the hotelier or tour operator was aware that there was an outbreak of illness, and ought to have warned you to be on your guard against contracting it and this will help when making your claim.
