    If you have just come back from your holiday, and are suffering from an illness caused by salmonella or if you have contracted Legionnaire’s Disease, you might be in need of an accident solicitor in Hildenborough. 

    Claims for illnesses contracted on holiday

    If you have been on a foreign package holiday you might have food poisoning or Legionnaire’s Disease and had your holiday ruined. You can claim for such illnesses, if you can demonstrate that you contracted you illness at the hotel where you were staying. Other guests might also have had the same illness and water and food can be tested for any contamination.

    What is Legionnaire’s Disease?

    Legionnaire’s Disease can be caused by breathing in water droplets in the air which are infected by the bacteria Legionella pneumophila or by drinking water infected with it. You cannot pass the disease onto another person, which is the good news.

    You can get Legionnaire’s Disease from a contaminated air conditioning system, or from whirlpool spas and other water systems. The bacteria can be prevented from growing by keeping water storage tanks clean and free from rust and other organic matter. The cold water should be stored at a temperature below 20º Celsius and the hot water should be stored at temperatures above 60 º Celsius. So the disease can easily be prevented by hotel owners.

    An accident solicitor in Hildenborough can take up a claim for your illness if it can be shown that it was caused by someone else’s negligence and this is also the case for work-related illnesses. If you have been diagnosed with an illness that is the fault of another person, then you have a case for a personal injury claim against the person responsible. You must start your claim for compensation within three years of being first diagnosed with the illness or within three years of being injured in an accident which was not your fault.
