Holiday illnesses abroad

Holiday illnesses abroad

Hotels, tour operators, restaurants and other services have a duty of care to their customers.

Overseas illnesses can result in serious health problems and many are entirely avoidable. The common causes of illness abroad that you may be able to claim compensation for include:

  • Food poisoning.
  • Bacterial infections.
  • Legionnaire’s disease.
  • Typhoid.
  • Norovirus.

If you or members of your family are taken ill abroad through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to claim compensation.

In cases where your holiday illness was avoidable, you can bring a claim against:

  • Package holiday tour operators — for failing to comply with their duty of care to you.
  • The hotel and their insurer — for breaches in health, safety and hygiene standards.
  • Cruise ship operators — for health and safety breaches and for failing to contain the spread of bacterial infections.

Our lawyers can provide free and impartial advice about the circumstances of your illness, helping you to bring a successful claim against those responsible.

We were put in touch with Hudgell Solicitors through the Advocate to represent us on a pro-bono basis. They assigned Iftikhar Manzoor and he has been fantastic- very down to earth and easy to talk to. Any queries are answered quickly, and there seems to be a real understanding of concerns raised regarding the inquest of a close family member. We are so very grateful of the support they have given us so far, and extremely confident in their ability to achieve the result we hope for.

FAQs

FAQs

Who can make a holiday illness claim?

In order to make a claim, our solicitors must be able to show that the sickness was caused by health and safety breaches, poor food handling, inadequate hygiene standards, or a hotel, tour operator or cruise company’s failure to contain the spread of a bacterial infection.

The claim can be for an individual, a family or a group.

If you’ve suffered an illnesses while on holiday, or another sickness bug which you believe could have been avoided, talk to our travel litigation solicitors today to see if you’re eligible make a compensation claim.

How long do I have to make a holiday illness claim?

If the illness was sustained in England and Wales, you normally have three years from the date of the onset of the illness to bring a compensation claim against those responsible.

The same may apply if you bring a claim against a tour operator based in the UK.

However, this may not be the case if your illness was contracted outside of England and Wales where English law does not apply. Some countries have much shorter time periods, some as short as 6-12 months from the date of the onset of the illness.

We recommend that you obtain advice from a travel litigation specialist at your earliest opportunity following an illness on holiday.

How much compensation can I expect for a holiday illness claim?

The amount of compensation you’re entitled to claim for a holiday illness will depend on the severity of your case and your financial losses.

When we accept your claim, we’ll assess the value of your case by considering the extent of your illness, and calculating your financial losses.

To do this, we’ll enlist the help of an independent medical expert who will consider the severity of your illness, and how much remedial treatment and care you require in the aftermath. We’ll also factor in any medical expenses you’ve incurred overseas, and the total financial loss you’ve suffered after being forced to abandon your holiday due to sickness.

For a free evaluation about the circumstances of your case and how much you may be entitled to claim, speak to our experienced travel claims team today.
