Simpson Millar’s travel lawyers handle many complaints and offer assistance to holidaymakers struck down by illness during their stay in Cape Verde. Sickness and food poisoning can occur when travelling with the largest names in the holiday industry, including: Airtours; First Choice; Thomas Cook and Thomson. Illness from food poisoning is often caused by the consumption of food contaminated with bacteria such as Salmonella, E. Histolytica and Campylobacter.
Foodborne bacteria is not the only hygiene concern for travellers as parasites living in swimming pool water can also cause watery diarrhoea, painful stomach cramps and fever to unsuspecting hotel guests.
