No Win No Fee Holiday Food Poisoning Claim

100% of our Holiday Food Poisoning Claims are made on a No Win No Fee basis which means that you do not have to worry about any financial risk at all as if your claim is unsuccessful it will not cost you anything. We have won significant compensation for clients who have suffered from Holiday Food Poisoning in the UK and abroad.

When you go on holiday you do not expect to get food poisoning as you expect the Hotel and Resort where you are staying to take the same care as you would at home.  The main and most obvious cause of holiday food poisoning is poor standards of food hygiene.

Hotels and Resorts should place food hygiene right at the top of their list of priorities but sadly this doesn’t always happen.

3 Tips on Food Hygiene

  • Anyone touching, preparing, handling or eating food must wash their hands using soap or anti-bacterial gel before and afterwards
  • If the food you are presented with is not hot, do not eat it
  • Keep you eyes open for obvious issues with food hygiene and preparation
