holiday sickness claims solicitors

Our solicitors in Treadstone Law, a leading firm in holiday sickness, recently won a trial for a Holiday Sickness Claim Against Jet 2. Our client will receive £18,000 in compensation for being left with permanent Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) after suffering from food poisoning during a family holiday in Spain.

The holiday took a turn for the worse when our client contracted food poisoning from the pasta served at the all-inclusive resort. They were confined to their hotel room with a 4-year-old and their 9-month-old baby required intravenous antibiotics. The hotel attempted to blame the illness on norovirus, but the hotel doctor prescribed antibiotics, indicating the presence of a bacterial pathogen like salmonella.

After a four-year fight, Our solicitors successfully argued that the hotel’s inadequate food hygiene standards were the cause of the client’s illness. The hotel could not provide proof that they checked the temperatures of cooked food, and 6.8% of guests reported upset stomachs that season. Jet 2, the tour operator, was found liable and ordered to pay compensation.

The victory serves as a reminder of the importance of proper food hygiene in the travel industry and the duty of care that tour operators have to their customers. The client’s permanent IBS symptoms have had a significant impact on their quality of life and the compensation awarded will help to alleviate some of their sufferings.
