Mother wins £3,000 Cryptosporidium Compensation


A mother who went on holiday with her family to Turkey and returned home suffering with Cryptosporidium has received £2,950 compensation from Thomson Holidays.

Holiday Illness Compensation

Mrs Ashford was infected with Cryptosporidium, which is contracted through contaminated swimming pool or drinking water.

The symptoms of Cryptosporidium are very severe but can take time to appear. So it wasn’t until a week after Mrs Ashford had returned home from her holiday in Turkey that she began to experience violent bouts of diarrhoea, crippling stomach cramps and vomiting.

Mrs Ashford turned to Simpson Millar Solicitors’ expert Travel Team for help in making an illness compensation claim. James Blower, Senior Holiday Claims Specialist was able to take the case on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis.

Dirty Hotel Swimming Pool

James Blower said, “Although Mrs Ashford was the only member of her family to fall ill, there were many other hotel guests that suffered with illness as a result of using the hotel swimming pool, many of them young children.

The standards of health and hygiene in the swimming pool were far below an acceptable standard. The swimming pool was not cleaned correctly during Mrs Ashford’s stay. Children’s faecal accidents were left in the water and not safely removed and the swimming pools were not closed so that they could be thoroughly cleaned.”

Excellent Service!

Mrs Ashford commented on the service she had received from Simpson Millar’s expert Holiday Illness Compensation Claims Specialists and said;

Excellent Service.” I was, “kept informed at all times of the progress and everything was explained in an easy, understandable way.”

James Blower was, “Very efficient and always kept us informed and dealt with us as individuals. I would definitely recommend Simpson Millar.”

No Solicitor’s Fees to worry about

Mrs Ashford was able to pursue her Holiday Illness Claim with Simpson Millar Solicitors under a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement.
