Our illness solicitors secured compensation for 50 holidaymakers who contracted gastric illness during a stay at the Gran Canaria Princess Hotel in 2003.
A number of our clients were diagnosed with salmonella, and some were hospitalised because of the severity of their symptoms. Many developed irritable bowel syndrome, a long term and sometimes permanent condition. The complaints the guests had about the resort concerned:
- The quality of the accommodation
- The attitude of the hotel staff and tour representatives
- The poor food hygiene standards
TUI UK Ltd, the tour operator, denied liability for the illness outbreak. However, our specialist travel lawyers negotiated a compensation settlement for the 50 holidaymakers, recovering more than £117,000.
We secured £5750 for Mr Jones, who developed severe gastric illness at the Gran Canaria Princess Hotel. He said: “Everyone at Irwin Mitchell Solicitors was very helpful and professional. I am very happy with the result and the way the case was handled.”
