Illness on Holiday Claims

Getting sick on holiday is awful and can really ruin a break you’ve been looking forward to. Some illnesses are completely unavailable, but when you contract food poisoning while on holiday and it could have even prevented, it’s particularly upsetting.

Food Poisoning on Holiday

A holiday is a great opportunity to relax, be cooked for and cleaned up after and spend time with your family. When you get a resort with great food and drink options, that’s fantastic news. But it also means you’re completely in the hands of the staff on the resort, who it is hoped will take all necessary measures to keep you as healthy as possible.

From time to time, poor food hygiene or other issues can cause food poisoning and other illness. And this can absolutely ruin you holiday if it happens to you.

What to do if you get food poisoning on holiday on resort?

If you contracted food poisoning on holiday as the result of eating food in your resort or hotel, then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim.

While on holiday, you should:

  • Make a note of what you’ve eaten that you believe may be the cause of it
  • Speak to any other holidaymakers who may have also contracted food poisoning on resort
  • Report your illness to the hotel or resort management immediately
  • Report your illness to any holiday representatives from the company you booked with

If you did not do that, it isn’t to say it’s a lost cause.

Simply give us a call or complete our website enquiry form and speak to us in complete confidence. We’ll ask you for the details of your illness, the place you were staying and other information about your holiday and we’ll advise you without charge as to your potential next steps. If you decide to pursue a compensation claim for an illness on holiday and you’d like to instruct us, we will act on your behalf on a no win no fee basis.

Accidents on Cruise Ships

For the vast majority of Britons who enjoy a cruise holiday, it’s an enjoyable and incident free holiday. But sometimes, accidents happen and as the result, people get injured while on a cruise liner.

Most cruises booked by people in the UK will be covered by the Package Travel Regulations 1992. What this means, in essence, is that the organiser of the holiday has ultimate liability for personal injury of passengers.

Types of Accidents on Cruise Ships

Accidents on cruise ships could range hugely. They might be simple slips and trips on a wet floor or over a hazard that was in the way. In incredibly severe cases, injuries can be sustained on cruise liners due to crashes or fires on board.

There are a huge number of different types of accidents and injuries that could occur on a cruise ship and whatever the accident that caused your injuries, we can advise on whether you may be eligible to make a compensation claim.
