You may have stayed at the Kenmore Hotel, which is said to be the oldest inn in Scotland, bearing the date 1572. Robert Burns wrote one of his poems in the plaster on one of the breast of the chimney in what is now called the Poet’s Bar while he was staying there in 1787, so the place has a rich history. You may, on the other hand be a resident of Kenmore, and if you have had an accident that you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence, you may be able to make an injury claim in Kenmore, if you file it within three years of the date of the accident.
Why you might make an injury claim in Kenmore
You may be thinking of making an injury claim in Kenmore after being diagnosed with an illness which you can claim was the result of someone else’s negligence. This might be a work-related illness or an occupational disease, and you and your solicitor would have to prove that your employer’s negligence caused your condition. You have three years in which to file an injury claim in Kenmore, or one from elsewhere in the country, from first being diagnosed with the illness or disease.
Claiming for an illness on a foreign holiday
You can also make an injury claim in Kenmore if you had an illness on a package holiday and had booked it through a UK tour operator. With the increased popularity of all-inclusive holiday packages to hot countries such as Turkey, Egypt and the Dominican Republic, more people are returning to the UK with tales of food poisoning. One of the problems is that hotels serve buffet-style meals which are left out for guests for a few hours. Bacteria thrive in such conditions and you might find you are the victim of a virulent bout of food poisoning. To make matters worse, sometimes hot food is added to cold or warm food and this also causes problems.
Chicken, pork and fish should be cooked at the correct temperature, and sometimes they are not. Try to avoid eating pink meat and look carefully at the eyes and gills of any fish you eat to ensure it is fresh.
If you have food poisoning while on a foreign package holiday, it is likely that you won’t be the only sufferer. Check with other guests, inform the holiday representative and have them send details of your illness to the tour operator. Ask to be given a copy of the report. When you return to the UK you may be able to make an injury claim in Kenmore or elsewhere for your illness which was caused by the negligence of the staff at the hotel who are representatives of the tour operator.
