Do you need to claim following an accident or illness on holiday?

Have you or a member of your family been unfortunate to suffer an accident or illness on holiday?

An illness abroad can cause serious health problems, as well as ruin a holiday. Many of the most common holiday illnesses are completely avoidable if  proper health and safety rules are followed, so if you’ve become sick on holiday our solicitors may be able to help you claim compensation.

Whether your holiday was in the UK or abroad, we can help you to claim relevant compensation.  Depending on the type of incident involved all you need to do is speak to us.

We have been instrumental in helping our clients claim significant sums for both accidents and illnesses whilst on holiday.

Tour operators, hotels, restaurants and other service providers have a duty of care to you as a customer. Holiday sickness claims can be made for a number of different conditions caused by a failure by these parties to make sure that all necessary steps have been taken to ensure your safety. Our lawyers have helped thousands of people claim holiday illness compensation for conditions such as:

  • Food poisoning, including gastroenteritis, e-coli and salmonella
  • Norovirus
  • Legionnaires’ disease
  • Bacterial infections
  • Typhoid

How long does a claim for holiday sickness take?

As a guide, the average length of a holiday claim is around 18 months although this can be reduced if there are multiple cases of sickness in the same resort.

If you suffer from severe food poisoning, the doctor may recommend that you stay in a hospital for a few days or a week, and your medical bills may add up to thousands of dollars. … A travel insurance policy does not only provide compensation for medical fees; it also enables you to recover your lost travel investment, however, the insurance only covers the costs incurred and does not compensate you for the loss of enjoying.
