If you have been ill or have experienced symptoms of diarrhoea or sickness further to holidaying in or around the Montego Bay area, you may have a valid entitlement to recover compensation from your tour operator.
Simpson Millar’s dedicated holiday claims department specialise in helping people that have suffered illness whilst on or since returning from holiday, and have experience of pursuing claims against major and minor tour operators on a regular basis.
Holiday illness often arises as a result of poor hygiene practices, particularly in respect of food. Symptoms such as diarrhoea, nausea, and stomach cramps are often indicative of poor cleanliness or poor food handling procedures. These symptoms can also be indicative of a parasitic infection such a Cryptosporidium, which can come from swimming in a pool that has been exposed to faecal contamination.
If you have spent time in Montego Bay, Lucea, Falmouth or any other Jamaican resort and have returned with illness caused by poor food standards or a lack of cleanliness, we may be able to assist you in recovering compensation from your tour operator.

Package Holidays are protected by the Package Travel Regulations 1992 which allow claims to be brought against UK based tour operators, even where an illness has been caused overseas. If you are unsure if your holiday was a regulated package, we can advise you.

The following hotels, located in and around Montego Bay, are monitored by Simpson Millar’s specialist holiday lawyers for signs of illness and sickness that may be caused by infections such as Cryptosporidium, Salmonella, E-coli or Campylobacter.
