Dominican Holiday Compensation Claims – Food Poisoning

Our Lawyers take on cases, which in many instances involve groups of UK holidaymakers who may have been affected by a sickness bug outbreak at a particular foreign hotel. The most common cases we take on concern food poisoning, usually due to the bacterial infections Campylobacter, E. Coli, Salmonella and Shigella.

Salmonella is usually caused by food that has not been cooked properly. Campylobacter can be spread by wild birds, who in the Dominican Republic can be commonly encountered in restaurants and dining areas at hotels. Shigella is typically caused by raw food such as fruit and vegetables that have not been washed in clean water, but can also occur through an infected food handler contaminating food.

Other typical cases we accept involve waterborne illnesses, which are mainly linked to parasites, for example Giardia and Cryptosporidiosis.

With offices nationwide, and associates worldwide, you get the reassurance that your claim will be handled professionally. Call us on 0808 145 1353 and speak to one of our travel lawyers or complete the attached enquiry form.
