Have you or a member of your family been unfortunate to suffer an accident or illness on holiday?

Our Holiday Sickness Solicitors are able to support you if you have suffered because of negligence. Also, there is no financial risk to you as our holiday sickness claims are funded by a No Win, No Fee agreement.

What are Holiday Sickness Claims?

An illness abroad can cause serious health problems, as well as ruin a holiday.

Many of the most common holiday illnesses are completely avoidable if proper health and safety rules are followed. Tour operators, hotels, restaurants and other service providers have a duty of care to you as a customer.

Holiday sickness claims can be made for a number of different conditions caused by a failure by these parties to make sure that all necessary steps have been taken to ensure your safety.

What types of holiday sickness can I claim for?

The most common holiday sickness conditions are:

  • Food poisoning, including gastroenteritis, e-coli and salmonella
  • Norovirus
  • Legionnaires’ disease
  • Bacterial infection
  • Typhoid

How much can I claim for being sick on holiday?

The amount you can claim will depend on the specific details of your case and the nature and severity of your illness. Mild food poisoning on holiday involving stomach pain, cramps and diarrhoea continuing for several days would, on average, settle for between £700 and £3,000.

    How long do holiday sickness claims take?

    The process can take slightly longer than a claim within the UK, as your tour operator legally has 6 months to investigate your claim internally. As a guide, the average length of a holiday claim is around 18 months; although this can be reduced if there are multiple cases of sickness in the same resort.

    Does travel insurance cover food poisoning?

    If you suffer from severe food poisoning, the doctor may recommend that you stay in a hospital for a few days or a week. As a result, your medical bills may add up to thousands of pounds.

    A travel insurance policy does not only provide compensation for medical fees; it also enables you to recover your lost travel investment. However, the insurance only covers the costs incurred and does not compensate you for the loss of enjoying your holiday.

    How long does a travel insurance claim take?

    How long does it typically take travel insurance companies to pay a claim? It will depend on the type of your claim. But generally, once you have provided your travel insurer with all the necessary documentation, you should receive an outcome within 10 to 14 business days. If you wish to pursue a claim for compensation against the holiday company then we recommend you get in touch with our experts at Treadstone Law.

    “I was inundated by phone calls from dodgy companies telling me to put a claim in, but a colleague recommended Treadstone Law. I gave them a call and was astonished that, nine months later, I got a cheque for £4,700. Brilliant result!”

    Mr S / Wythenshawe

    “My son was injured at a holiday club. Treadstone Law came out to see me the same day I contacted them, and the solicitor who showed a real interest in the case. He explained it all well and was really nice to my son who was a bit frightened as he thought he was in trouble . We went to the scene of the accident and he did a full report taking loads of photos . This was really important as the play scheme moved all the incriminating evidence the next day.”

    Miss C / Cheshire

    “I had a simple road traffic accident and I was astonished when my solicitor called me and said she has settled my case for £13,000. I was very happy with the customer service that I received from Treadstone Law. They were always happy to help me with any questions I had and made me feel so welcome when I visited their offices. I will recommend my friends and family to use them if they require legal services.”

    Mrs O / Manchester

    “I was treated as a real human being by Treadstone Law. I was asked how I was, and the Solicitor did more than I had come in for, as I asked his advice about several other things. He answered all my questions and advised me what I should do, or what he would do if it were him. He made up for a lack of sensitivity shown by another solicitor’s firm, who treated me like a cash cow, were mercenary and lacked empathy. Unfortunately, I still have to deal with these solicitors, but not for long hopefully. Thank you again, and I will recommend you. Treadstone Law have restored my faith in solicitors!”

    Mrs D / Manchester

    “I was very impressed with the service I received, from the start of my claim to completion.”

    Mr S / Bolton
