Simpson Millar Holiday Lawyers See Rapid Influx of Salmonella Claims for 2012 Holidays
The travel lawyers at Simpson Millar Solicitors help people claim compensation for food poisoning suffered while on holiday. One of the most common types of holiday illness is salmonella and, yet again for another year, we are receiving numerous instructions from people that have suffered food poisoning type illnesses on holiday.
If you believe that you contracted salmonella from a hotel that formed part of a package holiday or food poisoning on a cruise liner we would urge you to contact us today for a free consultation about the compensation you may be entitled to.
Amongst those who have recently instructed us involve people that travelled to Tunisia, including a disappointed lady from Wales who contracted salmonella at the Marhaba Club in Sousse, and another couple that suffered Campylobacter and Salmonella at a hotel in Monsastir.
Salmonella is a type of food poisoning which is usually contracted from poorly prepared chicken and eggs. When people contract salmonella during a holiday, it is often from the food served at the all-inclusive buffet.
The symptoms of salmonella include profuse diarrhoea, stomach cramps and fever. Most people will be left bed bound by their illness resulting in ruined holidays.
Eggs are believed to be one of the potential cause of the illness suffered by a lady from Scotland that we are helping claim compensation for Salmonella on the TUI Celebration Cruise Liner.
Even if food, such as eggs and chicken, arrives at the hotel infected with salmonella, the bacteria can be eradicated by proper cooking. Regular replenishing of buffet food and storage of food at the right temperatures can easily reduce the growth of harmful germs.
An unlucky family from Newcastle suffered from salmonella at the Holiday Village in Manar, Tunisia. The hotel was sold by First Choice as one of their flagship hotels. We are currently monitoring all of the First Choice Holiday Villages for illness bugs.
