Food Poisoning on Holiday

The team at JPS Walker have years of experience in dealing with claims arising from illness on holiday so we will ensure we recover the maximum compensation for you.

If you have suffered with food poisoning on holiday or illness due to an unhygienic swimming pool, call our specialist team now on 0161 713 5575 to start your claim.

We have pursued holiday illness claims from all over the world but the more common countries include Spain, Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Cuba, Portugal, Morocco and Tunisia.

We have handled cases against numerous tour operators with regular claims being brought against Thomas Cook, Thomsons, First Choice and Jet2 Holidays.

Holiday illness is often caused by poor standards of hygiene adopted by your hotel. This can include:

  • Serving undercooked food
  • Buffet food being left out for long periods of time in hot weather
  • Unhygienic swimming pools
  • Failure to refrigerate food
  • Poor standards of cleanliness
  • Failure to keep animals out of the restaurant area

The practices adopted by the hotel can often cause illness and spoil the enjoyment of your holiday. Even if you only suffered illness for three days you will be able to make a claim to compensate you for your illness and loss of enjoyment of your holiday.

If you have suffered food poisoning or illness on holiday, you could be entitled to the following amounts of compensation:

  • Food poisoning for a few days: £700 – £4000
  • Mild food poisoning: £3000 – £8000
  • Serious food poisoning: £7,700 – £15,910
  • Severe food poisoning: £30,000 – £45,000

We will also be able to claim on your behalf any other losses which you have incurred as a result of your illness and this can include the cost of your holiday.

We have handled cases dealing with different types of bacterial infections including:

  • Salmonella
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Campylobacter
  • Cryptosporidium
  • E. coli
  • Shigella
