    Can illness be a holiday accident claim?


    It is often the case that tourists fall ill on holiday for a variety of reasons. Food poisoning, dirty water and other causes of illness could put an immediate end to your holiday, causing financial loss and terrible inconvenience.

    Thankfully, if you have suffered an illness on holiday as a result of someone else’s negligence then you may be eligible to claim for travel accident compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.

    How illness could be lead to a holiday accident claim

    An illness abroad example:

    A family decides to eat at an Italian restaurant just around the corner from their hotel. Two of the family members order a chicken and mushroom pizza to share and later that evening they both come down with serious food poisoning and are rushed to hospital.

    The family believes that the reason for falling ill was that the chicken on the pizza was not cooked properly, and the hospital treatment resulted in them paying more than they had paid for their holiday.
