Illness at the Coral/Red Sea Holiday Village Continues Unabated!
Are you intent on claiming compensation because you suffered from a debilitating holiday illness whilst staying at the Red Sea Holiday Village in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt?
Simpson Millar Solicitors are continuing to provide specialist compensation advice to holidaymakers returning from the Coral Sea Holiday Village who have been struck down by gastric illness! We are now acting on behalf of over 50 holidaymakers who have returned ill from the Red Sea Holiday Village in Egypt suffering from profuse diarrhoea – brutal abdominal cramps – fever – headaches and flu like symptoms.
Simon Lomax the firm’s Holiday Illness Claims Manager says:
“I am aware that guests have been returning ill from the Holiday Village Red Sea in Egypt for a number of years but this year the number of travellers’ experiencing a gastric holiday illness appears higher than ever.”
“At this rate First Choice risk the Holiday Village brand becoming tarnished because of the amount of illness claims being made. This is a shame because the all-inclusive Holiday Village concept appeals to many families.”
“Our Holiday Illness Claims team has received numerous instructions to act on behalf of disgruntled ill holidaymakers of late. The strength of our group lies in the fact that many of our clients have been diagnosed with bacterial and parasitic infections.”
“Holidaymakers have been advising me that the Holiday Representatives are directing the hotel’s guests to the local pharmacy. At £20 a time the chemist appears to be doing a roaring trade!”
“Holidaymakers should be aware that Antinal and Steptoquin are antibiotics used to treat bacterial infections. If you start to feel better after taking them your illness is unlikely to have been due to an over indulgence of food or alcohol – a virus – or the most popular excuse reported to have been used by Hotel Representatives – the heat!”
Simon continues to say:
“The number of bacterial and parasitic infections identified would suggest that there are serious hygiene issues at the Red Sea Holiday Village.”
“Travellers’ returning from the Red Sea Holiday Village with a gastric illness are urged to seek immediate medical treatment from their GP – insist on a stool sample to identify the specific cause of your holiday illness.”
“Holidaymakers who have suffered illness are able to seek compensation upon their return home from the Coral or Red Sea Holiday Village because they have the benefit of powerful consumer regulations in the Package Travel Regulations [Etc] 1992. These regulations enable travellers’ who suffer illness to claim compensation from First Choice Holidays, under UK law.”
“Responsible tour operators should not be subjecting holidaymakers to infectious diseases caused by E-coli – Cryptosporidium – Shigella (Dysentery) – Salmonella – Campylobacter or indeed any bacterial or parasitic holiday bug.”
