Food poisoning is one of the most common illnesses to affect people who are on holiday abroad. If you've caught food poisoning because of negligence on the part of a hotel, restaurant or tour operator, our lawyers could help you claim compensation.
Anyone serving food, wherever they are in the world, has a responsibility to ensure they're following health and safety procedures properly. Tour operators also have a responsibility to ensure that the hotels, cruise ships and other venues they use are following food safety best practice. If they've failed to do this, the tour operator could be held liable for your illness.
Food poisoning is a common collective name for a number of different conditions, mostly with similar symptoms such as diarrhoea and vomiting. These conditions not only ruin a holiday, but can have long term health effects too. Our lawyers have a great deal of experience making holiday food poisoning claims that involve:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome (HUS)
Claiming for something that happened abroad can be a daunting prospect, and it helps to have the experts on your side. When you make a claim with us, we handle every aspect of your case so you don't have to worry about language barriers or overseas regulations.
Most of the international food poisoning claims we handle are made in England & Wales. But in some cases it may be beneficial to make your claim abroad. We can advise you on this in a free initial consultation about making a claim.
Compensation claims in England & Wales are normally funded through a
No Win No Fee agreement. This means that there's nothing to pay upfront, and that you won’t have to pay any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful*.
