Scottish Family Win £8000 for Egyptian Hotel Sickness


Specialist Holiday Lawyers, Simpson Millar, help people suffering from holiday illness to claim compensation for traveller's diarrhoea including Salmonella, Cryptosporidium and E. Coli.

Food Poisoning on Holiday Hell

This case study is genuine feedback from a family represented by Simpson Millar, who won their claim for compensation from First Choice Holidays for illness suffered during a disastrous holiday at the Red Sea Holiday Village in Egypt.

The Hepburn family from Ayrshire received more than £8000 in holiday compensation because their holiday was ruined by a stomach bug. The amount the family received was substantially more than the cost of the holiday.

Mrs Hepburn felt that the outcome of her case was excellent and when asked her opinion about Paul Stevens, a specialist Travel Lawyer, who conducted her family's claims, she said "such a pleasure - service was second to none - very helpful, pleasant and reassuring".

She was also pleased with the clear way in which Simpson Millar explained their advice to her and remarked that the "whole experience was without fault."

Quality Legal Advice

Paul commented "I am delighted that we were able to make the whole holiday claims process easy for Mrs Hepburn and her family."

"On this occasion we were able to cooperate with the First Choice Holidays' Customer Legal Department to bring about a satisfactory outcome without needing to go to court."

"Many people each year become ill on Egyptian package holidays. Tour operators such as Thomas Cook and First Choice often try to blame changes to conditions as being the cause of illness. However, more often than not, poor standards of hotel hygiene are the cause of holiday bugs in Egypt.

People who suffer illness on holiday are generally represented by Simpson Millar's Travel Specialists under No Win No Fee agreements, where their claim may be against a tour operator.
