If you have had an illness while on holiday which you can prove was caused by the negligence of another person, then you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim for holiday illness compensation. You may have been unfortunate enough to get a severe case of food poisoning after staying at a hotel; perhaps you took an all-inclusive package and had buffet-style meals. If food is left for a while, as buffet food so often is, then bacteria will grow in a warm climate.
Holiday illness compensation
If you and a group of other holidaymakers from the UK have had the same illness while staying in the same hotel, then you can make a group claim for the illness. The sooner you do so when you return to the UK the better, as some claims take longer than others to be settled.
If you booked your holiday with a UK tour operator or travel agent, you can make a holiday illness compensation claim against that company. An accident or personal injury solicitor is available to advise you on whether or not it would be worth pursuing a claim under such circumstances.
