Holiday Sickness claims & Illness claims

9TH MARCH 2018

An illness abroad can cause serious health problems, as

well as ruin a holiday. Many of the most common holiday

illnesses are entirely avoidable if health and safety rules

are followed, so if you've become sick on holiday our

solicitors may be able to help you claim compensation.

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.


Our lawyers have helped thousands of people claim holiday illness compensation for conditions such as:

  • Food poisoning, including gastroenteritis, e-coli and salmonella

  • Norovirus

  • Legionnaires' disease

  • Bacterial infections

  • Typhoid


However, if you've become ill with any other condition as a result of the negligence of another party while abroad, you may be able to claim holiday sickness compensation, so it's best to seek legal advice.

Most of the international personal injury 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*.

We have a proven track record in holiday illness claims, including high-profile cruise illness cases such as the MS Sundream norovirus outbreak, as well as illness outbreaks at hotels such as the Alcudia Pins Hotel in Majorca and Holiday Village Turkey.

Claiming compensation for something that happened overseas can seem daunting, but with experts on your side it’s nothing to worry about. Our solicitors aim to make the whole process as straightforward as possible for our clients, with plain English advice free of legal jargon.
