Claim Holiday Abroad Compensation – Injured or Sick in Turkey?
Were you ill or involved in an accident at your hotel in Turkey?
Simpson Millar Solicitors are Experts in Claiming Compensation for Illness, Food Poisoning and Injuries suffered in the popular holiday destination of Turkey.
Turkey is becoming incredibly popular amongst British holidaymakers looking for cheap holidays in this difficult economic climate. The weak exchange rate against the Euro is driving the demand for holiday destinations such as Egypt and Turkey, countries which are not subject to European health and safety legislation.
Simon Lomax, Simpson Millar’s Package Holiday Compensation Claims Manager, states:
“Holiday Tour Operators such as Thomas Cook, TUI and First Choice are bracing themselves for an increase in claims for compensation as travellers’ return from Hotels in Turkey ill or injured.”
“Travel industry sources suggest bookings for popular Turkish destinations such as Gumbet – Dalaman – Altinkum – Marmaris – Bodrum – Gumbet and Olu Deniz have increased by over 40% The recent shift in booking trends towards value for money “all-inclusive” holidays to Turkey where the total price is set in advance is also increasing the demand for package holidays.”
“However, the significant increase in visitor numbers to Turkish hotels, coupled with poor standards in health and safety, is causing a rise in holiday compensation claims for sickness, food poisoning and accidents from travellers returning to the UK from Turkey.”
“As a result of Turkey’s spectacular rise in popularity during summer 2009 I had expected British tour operators to have increased health and safety standards by resolving hygiene problems in Turkish hotels. However, the opposite appears to be occurring, and Simpson Millar LLP has therefore recruited new employees to handle the increasing number of injury, accident and illness enquiries from Turkey.”
“In 2008 and 2009 we were instructed by over 100 travellers’ who suffered from debilitating bouts of illness at First Choice’s Holiday Village Turkey. Many holidaymakers returned from the Holiday Village in Sarigerme, Turkey, with gastroenteritis caused by E coli – Cryptosporidium – Campylobacter and Salmonella food poisoning together with serious ear infections.”
“Once again this trend appears to be continuing!”
