If you think you might be able to claim for Irritable Bowel Syndrome caught on holiday, we recommend that you speak to us today. We can advise you about the prospects of your claim succeeding and what steps we can take to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
If you choose to instruct us, we will do all the hard work for you in terms of obtaining a medical report, completing legal documents and negotiating your compensation award with the tour operator.
While we appreciate that money will do little to ease your symptoms, it will go some way towards a feeling of justice for health problems that could have been avoided had your tour operator cared more for your health and safety.
Awards vary from person to person dependent on symptoms and the likely duration. We can give you more of an idea of what your IBS claim is worth if you call us to your symptoms because our holiday lawyers are well used to dealing with IBS problems such as diarrhoea, stomach cramps, bloating, wind and constipation.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be caused by many different strands of food poisoning including salmonella, e-coli and cryptosporidium. You do not need to have tested positive for food poisoning to make an IBS claim as we instruct doctors who can advise what germ they think caused your illness and whether that germ was the cause of your IBS.
If you are thinking about making an IBS compensation claim, we would advise you to contact us as soon as possible by sending us an email or calling us. We will discuss whether your claim is suitable for a no-win-no-fee agreement.
We have helped hundreds of people successfully claim compensation for food poisoning and IBS.
You have three years to make a claim from the date that your illness started.
