Irwin Mitchell has secured a four-figure settlement for a woman left with ongoing health problems after contracting Salmonella during her holiday at the Laguna Park Hotel, in Bulgaria, in 2012.
Our client travelled to the Laguna Park resort for an all-inclusive ten day break with her best friend. However, she suffered with severe diarrhoea, abdominal pain and vomiting. When she returned home she was diagnosed with Salmonella food poisoning and continues to suffer with symptoms.
Our client complained that on occasions some of the food was served undercooked and birds were seen in and around the restaurant area. She also noticed that some of the hot food was served lukewarm in the restaurant and on occasions, fresh food was seen to be piled on top of existing dishes that had been left out on the buffet.
Following the commencement of legal proceedings, our team managed to secure a four-figure settlement for the client. She was very pleased with the outcome and commented: “I have now been awarded a sum much larger than I had anticipated and am grateful for this.
"I would not hesitate to use Irwin Mitchell again or advise others in a similar situation to do so.”
