Sickness Whilst On Holiday
Feeling sick while you are away can ruin a holiday that you spent your hard earned money on. Not only can it ruin it for you, but also your friends and family that have travelled with you.
Potentially leaving you with permanent health problems, this can affect your life as a whole, which is why Nayyars Solicitors expertise can help you get access to compensation to help you with rehabilitation and support.
We can pursue your case against the tour operator for causing your injury. The types of incidents that can give rise to an illness are:
- Poor Staff Personal Hygiene
Viruses such as MRSA and Salmonella are just some of the most harmful infections that can be passed between people who do not wash their hands. Children and the elderly are the most susceptible to these food-borne viruses and can also lead to death.
- Unclean Swimming Pools
Many viruses can survive for months in warm water and by extension, also be present in water systems and drainage. Naturally occurring water sources such as ponds and pools can become stagnant and also prove to be a threat.
- Unwashed Fruit & Vegetables
Organic consumables such as fruit and vegetables are now more responsible for outbreaks of food-borne illnesses than meat, poultry or eggs.
If you have been made ill or suffered injuries whilst on holiday, contact Nayyars Solicitors, and our specialist advisers can determine the best course of action to access your claim further.
If you booked your package holiday through a UK tour operator, the major parts of your trip (including transport delays, accommodation problems and food poisoning) will be covered by The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.
