Holiday Compensation Claim in Sheffield


If you and your friends were on holiday and suffered from an illness caused by the salmonella bacteria after eating at your hotel’s restaurant, then you could be considering filing a holiday compensation claim in Sheffield or a claim based elsewhere in the UK. You could make a large claim against your UK tour operator or travel agent if you were ill because of salmonella while on holiday, and could make a holiday compensation claim in Sheffield.

Holiday compensation claim in Sheffield

Perhaps you are thinking of making a holiday compensation claim in Sheffield after suffering from an illness for which another person’s negligence was responsible, or perhaps you were the victim of an accident which was the result of another person’s negligence. If the person responsible was a representative of your British tour operator or travel agent, then you can make a claim against the operator or agent. If, however, a local person was responsible any holiday compensation claims would be more complex and you would have to find a solicitor who has the expertise you need in dealing with claims in the foreign country where you had the illness or accident.

Salmonella poisoning

Salmonella bacteria may be present in food in the following circumstances:

  • You may have eaten the bacteria in undercooked food (chicken which was still pink, for example). It may also be found in eggs and unpasteurised milk;
  • People can spread the bacteria if for example they touch contaminated food or surfaces and then touch plates;
  • Hotel staff can spread the bacteria in hotels which have a low standard of hygiene.

Salmonella has an incubation period (normally) of between 6 and 48 hours. Symptoms may last for between a few days or a few weeks. Children under the age of five may carry the strain for more than a year after contracting the illness.

You could receive compensation of between £2,000 and £20,000, depending on the severity of your symptoms if you had food poisoning after being infected by the salmonella bacteria.
