    Holiday accidents: Food poisoning


    Claims for travel accident compensation are a little more complicated than other personal-injury claims. While you are well within your rights to pursue a claim if you have been a victim of a travel-related injury, there are certain obstacles surrounding cases that occur outside the UK.

    How do I know if I am eligible to claim?

    First and foremost, before delving into the intricacies of your travel claim, you must be able to answer ‘yes’ to the following three questions:

    1. Did your holiday take place in the last three years?
    2. Did you suffer from an injury or illness that wasn’t your fault?
    3. Do you have medical evidence to support your claim?

    If these criteria are applicable to you, it is likely that you will be able to claim compensation for the holiday injury or illness.

    How do I claim?

    As the laws in every country differ, cases for holiday claims can take a little longer to process. Those who have booked package holidays through UK tour companies have the best chance of success, but that does not mean to say that other cases cannot be considered.

    Due to the complexity of travel accident claims, it is advisable to pass your case over to a no win no fee compensation provider, who has all the expertise needed to handle your individual case.

    Can I claim if I have suffered from food poisoning?

    To claim compensation for a holiday illness such as food poisoning, you must be able to prove that that your sickness was the fault of your travel company or hotel.

    This means that if you suffered food poisoning, due to eating at a town-centre restaurant or street-side café ,your case will not be considered. Food poisoning due to hotel food or even airline food is a valid case for travel illness compensation.
