The number of more serious infections has been controlled by improvements in the standards implemented by UK tour operators and their collective influence via the Federation of Tour Operators. However, Simpson Millar LLP travel lawyers continue to act for holidaymakers who are claiming compensation for illness caused by poor hygiene standards experienced in Tunisia.
