Vacationer awarded compensation after contracting food poisoning

Our specialist personal injury solicitors have recently settled a compensation claim with a cruise ship company following a diagnosis of food poisoning for a client.

Whilst enjoying a nine night all-inclusive cruise, our client began to experience symptoms of food poisoning three days into the trip. As the holiday was all-inclusive, the passenger ate and drank only from the ship and therefore the source of the problem was identifiable. He was treated on board by the ship's nurse but remained unwell for the duration of the holiday.

After returning to the United Kingdom the cruise ship operator offered to settle the issue through a direct payment. However our client decided to see his GP and was prescribed a course of antibiotics after being diagnosed with bacterial poisoning.

After contacting our specialist personal injury solicitors, he was awarded compensation in excess of the original settlement offered by the company.
