Eating out is always something of a treat. You don’t have to do the washing up for one thing, but you also get to enjoy a variety of different dishes cooked to perfection. For many people, going on holiday is about relaxing and enjoying themselves. This includes not having to cook in many cases, and as such you can imagine how pleasant it is to have restaurants and buffets to look forward to each day.
Sometimes, although thankfully only quite rarely, things can go wrong. Food poisoning is never a pleasant experience and you can find you end up being very ill if food has not been stored, prepared or cooked in the proper manner. In these cases the people affected by illness may be able to seek holiday food poisoning compensation.
Ruining a good holiday
Whether you stay full- or half-board somewhere in the UK or you choose a UK tour operator to handle your request for a foreign holiday, you have a right to enjoy a safe stay that causes you no illness. If you end up being ill because the hotel or other facility you are staying in provides substandard food, you have a right to find out whether you could get holiday food poisoning compensation.
In the UK, food safety laws are applied to any outlet that provides food of any kind to people. However, even though the laws may be different in other countries, if you booked your holiday through a UK tour operator you may have a potential claim to make against them.
Finding out whether you do indeed have good cause to claim
This can be difficult to work out, but in reality you only have to seek legal advice on a no-obligation basis to find out whether you have a good claim to make if you have suffered from food poisoning. The sooner you get in touch the easier it will be to find out the answers.
All you have to do is call Accident Advice Helpline on our free 24/7 enquiry line on 0800 689 0500. This is by far the best way to get access to the no-obligation advice you will need in this instance. The more you know and the faster you get those answers, the faster you could potentially be compensated for the illness you suffered while on holiday. Don’t let your chance go unnoticed.
