Smaller and more peaceful than its noisy neighbours, Majorca and Ibiza, Menorca is the second largest island of the Balearic Islands. This tranquil island has more beaches than Majorca and Ibiza combined, for those special and relaxing family holidays. But how do you claim compensation if things go wrong?
At Simpson Millar we pursue compensation claims for ill holidaymakers on a 'No Win, No Fee' basis. If your holiday with Thomson, First Choice, Thomas Cook etc. was spoilt by illness, regulation 15 of the 1992 Package Travel Regulations provides a means by which compensation can be claimed in the UK against a tour operator for the negligence or failures of hoteliers in Menorca.
Every year Simpson Millar successfully pursue claims for ill holidaymakers returning from one of First Choice’s Holiday Villages with Salmonella, E coli, Cryptosporidium or Campylobacter food poisoning!
As the Holiday Village Menorca opens its doors for First Choice’s customers in May 2013 we question how many more victims of food poisoning we help this year claim the compensation they deserve?
Holidaymakers who suffer food poisoning or sickness at the Holiday Village Menorca are invited to call us on 0808 145 1353.
Swimming pool regulations impose extremely high hygiene standards on hoteliers in the Balearic Island, including Menorca – absolutely no bacteria or parasites are permitted in the pool water.
In February 2011, Thomson Holidays lost a landmark case in Birmingham, when the judge ruled in the claimants' favour, when they contracted cryptosporidiosis from a maintained pool. Thomson claimed, "We have been criticised for not meeting a standard that is impossible to meet!"
Simpson Millar’s travel team replies, “For many years tour operators have relied on the fact that in most holiday destinations health and safety standards are much lower than those we experience in the UK. We were therefore surprised that they chose to run this case to trial given the legal costs involved in litigation.”
Menorca has been sheltered from the effects of development and has certainly avoided becoming a full blown urbanized and tourist stricken holiday destination. Its largest resorts include:
