"If several people are ill at a holiday hotel bring a joint claim against the tour operator"
The benefits of group holiday illness claims
Group Holiday Illness Claims, Group Actions or Holiday Illness Group Actions occur when a group of holidaymakers who have become ill abroad, make a joint claim against the tour operator.
Group claims often strengthen the position of the claimant, especially in cases of holiday illness, including food poisoning in package holiday hotels. Outbreaks of illness often occur in package holiday hotels abroad, and many guests can be affected after eating the same food in the same hotel restaurants.
Holiday representatives may try to cover up any wrong doing by tour operators, and will not usually accept any responsibility for outbreaks of food-related illness. If you are ill after eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated liquids in a holiday hotel, and you think that poor standards of food or hygiene are to blame for your sickness, you should make a note of the contact details of other guests suffering the same illness, after eating the same food, as you may be able to bring a group action against the tour operator when you arrive home.
If you become ill in a holiday hotel, you should report your illness straight away to the tour representative, and ask for a copy of anything you sign. Seek medical help in the resort, and again when you return home, particularly if you are suffering from ongoing symptoms of illness. A UK doctor will also be able to confirm your illness and may ask you to submit a stool sample.
Most UK holidaymakers fail to claim compensation after holiday illness, or they are not aware they can do this when they return home, on a no win, no fee basis. Tour operators generally try to deny liability for outbreaks of illness in package holiday hotels, but as experts in claiming holiday illness compensation, we can help you get the payout you deserve.
