Four Figure Compensation for Illness at the Art Hotel Bodrum


The Simpson Millar Travel Law Experts have been applauded for helping an unlucky customer claim holiday compensation for salmonella at the Art Hotel in Bodrum.

Holiday Claims

Salmonella food poisoning is one of the most common causes of what is known in Turkey as the “Turkish Trotts” but if you are unlucky enough to contract the illness during a holiday to Bodrum it is no laughing matter.

The lady from Warrington suffered a serious bout of gastric illness while on holiday in Turkey. When she got home, stool samples tested positive for salmonella so she approached Simpson Millar to help her claim compensation from her tour operator for the illness suffered.

The case was dealt with by Paul Stevens, an experienced Manchester Travel Lawyer, who was able to help her make a salmonella claim against the Thomson, one of the largest UK Tour Operators.

Upon being awarded her holiday compensation pay out, Paul was described by the successful client as:

“Competent, friendly, skilled and tenacious”

When asked if she would recommend Simpson Millar, she advised “Yes – I already have!”

Disappointment as Salmonella in Turkey Continues to be a Problem.

Paul said, “It is great that the Thomson Customer Legal Department recognised the need to promptly award compensation for people that suffer from salmonella on holiday.”

“Unfortunately, people are still returning from places like Turkey with holiday infections which can be avoided by adopting proper standards of food hygiene.”

“We are happy to help people claim compensation for illness infections caught on holiday. People should be wary of the usual £500 offered for salmonella by tour operators as standard. Most compensation awards for salmonella are worth at least four times that amount”.

Help Available for Holiday Illness

You can find out if you contracted salmonella by getting your stool samples tested by your doctor upon your return to the UK. If they come back negative, you can still claim compensation for the illness if t was due to poor hygiene standards.

Whether the results are negative or positive, the Simpson Millar Travel Lawyers can provide a free telephone consultation in which advice can be given about your chances of making a successful claim.
