Holiday Illness Compensation Claims

Have you have suffered food poisoning or other illnesses caused by negligence, while on holiday or abroad? You should make a holiday illness compensation claim for the illness and loss of enjoyment of your holiday.

Your tour operator must take all reasonable steps to ensure your health and safety while on holiday. If they fail to do this, you may have grounds for a compensation claim. However, it’s important to take into account that laws and regulations vary from country to country, and the legal side of these claims can be complex.

Norovirus Compensation Claim

Norovirus, sometimes known as ‘winter vomiting bug’, is the most common stomach bug in the UK – there are at least 25 known strains of norovirus that affect humans. It is highly contagious, affects people of all ages, and there is no specific cure for it. Luckily, most of its symptoms only last a few days.

Norovirus is a particular problem for the cruise ship industry, where staff and passengers are confined to a relatively small area where norovirus spreads quickly. Once an outbreak occurs, passengers are confined to their cabins, and eliminating the virus is only possible by removing all passengers and crew, and undertaking a deep clean.

Symptoms of Norovirus include

  • a raised temperature (over 38°C/100.4°F)
  • headaches
  • painful stomach cramps
  • aching limbs
  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea

If you have suffered from norovirus on a cruise ship, you should make a holiday illness claim for the illness and also the loss of enjoyment of your holiday.
