Nobody wants to fall ill on holiday, but depending on how seriously ill you are, your trip could be ruined and you could still be ill after you return home. If that illness is someone else’s fault, for example your travel provider has been negligent and the hotel where you stayed hasn’t cooked your meals properly then you may be able to claim for compensation. Below, we have answered some of the most common questions asked by clients wanting to peruse a holiday illness claim.
If you suffered from food poisoning while on holiday then your tour operator can be held responsible. It is their duty after all to make sure that their venues are safe and clean for their customers. If they are not and you become ill you may be entitled to compensation.
Our team of highly trained personal injury solicitors can lead you through the claims process.
If you went on an all-inclusive package holiday then your holiday is protected by the regulations. It will be stated on your confirmation invoice whether or not you booked a package holiday.
If you suffer an illness abroad you can claim compensation for your own illness. You can also act on behalf of your children if they are under the age of 16, and anyone who lacks the capacity to manage their own legal case.
Our Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You Make A Claim And Get The Compensation You Deserve.
A claim must be made within three years from the date of the illness. If you went on a cruise, booked anything other than a package holiday or it was your child who suffered then your solicitor will advise you what time limits apply.
Yes. Booking a package holiday means that you have additional protections when you go abroad and things go wrong.
The success of your claim depends on what we can prove. Your solicitor will advise you once they have evaluated your claim.
