When you book a tour bus holiday, you’re probably daydreaming about exploring exotic locations, seeing places off-the-beaten-track and meeting some new people along the way. The last thing you want to worry about is getting sick on holiday. In enclosed environments such as tour buses and cruise ships, disease and infection can spread more quickly than in some other environments, which means if somebody else gets sick, for example with a vomiting bug or food poisoning, it might not be long before you are also struck down.
Being ill on holiday is no laughing matter; it can be even worse if you’re ill whilst on a tour, as you’re expecting to only spend a short time in each place, and you may be ill whilst on the road. Food poisoning usually causes vomiting and diarrhoea, and with only one toilet on board most coaches, a bus full of sick travellers is a serious matter. If you’re considering claiming compensation for tour bus food poisoning, there’s usually a three year time limit in place to make a claim. Get in touch with a personal injury lawyer today, to see if you could claim.
Have you been struck down by food poisoning?
When on a coach tour, you may become ill after eating at a local hotel or restaurant – you could even be poisoned by snack food bought and consumed on the bus itself. If a number of people, or the whole group, eat the same food, it’s likely everyone will become ill. Food poisoning can be caused by food not being cooked or stored properly, or by poor hygiene practices when preparing food. If you’ve been affected and you’re considering claiming compensation for tour bus food poisoning, the good news is that you’re unlikely to need to attend court, as most personal injury claims can be processed in full over the phone.
