    Compensation for holiday park food poisoning


    Food poisoning can be an extremely debilitating illness but it can be much worse if it is developed while on holiday. Visiting a holiday park is a great day out for the whole family and the last thing that anyone wants is a bout of food poisoning. There may not be a doctor nearby or you may be unaware where to seek medical attention.

    It may also cost you money to seek medical help and it may even become necessary to come home early which could cost more money. It may also be the case that the food poisoning does not subside after a few days therefore you may need time off work after returning home to get better. Some people also suffer complications if they have an underlying illness or they have consumed a lot of contaminated food.

    If you have booked a holiday with a UK company, you can make a complaint to the holiday provider. They should then carry out an inspection of the food business at the holiday park or hotel and ensure that other holidaymakers do not suffer the same illness.

    If you have contacted the holiday provider and they do not appear to be doing much to rectify the situation or they have not offered you any means of apology, you may want to pursue compensation for holiday park food poisoning.

    Compensation claims from a holiday provider

    It is relatively straightforward to claim compensation from a holiday company, provided that you booked your package in the UK. If you have consumed food from a restaurant that has failed to put the hygiene regulations into practice, then you could win a cash payout for your suffering. Where there is evidence that negligence took place, you may wish to make contact with a representative such as Accident Advice Helpline to pursue a compensation claim.
