30.09.2014

Expert holiday illness lawyers at Irwin Mitchell have been instructed to represent a number of tourists who suffered severe gastric illnesses during their stay at the Hotel Marmaris Palace in Dalaman, Turkey.

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury team, which has vast experience in representing victims of outbreaks of illness at holiday resorts in the UK and abroad, is now investigating the source of the reported illnesses which include diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps.

Expert lawyers at the firm have heard first-hand from victims of the problems that have been linked to the hotel, which are thought to have affected a large number of people, including around 25 children. 

Irwin Mitchell has now commenced its own investigations into the problems on behalf of those who have been in touch and has informed tour operator Thomas Cook of their client’s concerns. Among the problems reported to lawyers were:

• Undercooked food 
• New food was on occasions added to old food
• Dirty cutlery and crockery

Amandeep Dhillon, a Partner at Irwin Mitchell leading the case, said:
Expert Opinion
The symptoms described to us by our clients are extremely concerning particularly as a number of children are reported to have been affected.

“Gastric illness such as this can have a long-lasting effect on sufferers, with problems sometimes leading to the development of long-term health conditions which they may never fully recover from.

“Our clients want answers and we hope the hotel and tour operator conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of the outbreak at the Hotel Marmaris Palace to reduce the risk of further illness in future.”
