More Than 40 British Holidaymakers Thought To Be Affected
Urgent investigations must be undertaken into fresh reports of illness problems affecting a number of British holidaymakers staying in the Riviera Maya and Cancun regions of Mexico, according to specialist international personal injury lawyers.
The Sun has reported that 46 Britons are believed to have been affected by illnesses associated with the cyclospora bug, which is thought to be linked to food which has been contaminated with faeces.
It added that this marks the fourth time in recent years that the area has been affected by such problems.
Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury team has a huge amount of experience in providing advice and support to holidaymakers affected by illness problems both in resorts and on cruise ships across the world.
Reacting to this latest news, Jatinder Paul, a legal expert who specialises in representing holidaymakers who have suffered serious illnesses abroad, said:
Expert Opinion“It is a huge concern to hear reports of these problems in Mexico and at present the priority must be ensuring that those affected are given the support they need in order to recover.
“Following that, attention must turn to thoroughly investigating these issues and determining whether they may be linked to the previous issues. Ultimately, every effort must be made to ensure lessons are learned from the problems so that they are never repeated in the future.
“Many holidaymakers will be seeking reassurances and these should be provided as quickly as possible.” Jatinder Paul - Partner
