Family Get £4000 Compensation for Cryptosporidium Holiday Misery


Simpson Millar’s Holiday Travel Lawyers help people who have suffered holidays from hell to Claim Compensation for illness caused by shoddy hotels and hotel food.

One of the most common holiday illnesses is Cryptosporidium, a parasitic infection often associated with poor swimming pool hygiene. This bug causes victims to suffer unpleasant stomach upsets.

Simpson Millar Praised for “Great Service”

Mr and Mrs Martin from Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, instructed the Simpson Millar Specialist Travel Lawyers to help them claim compensation after they contracted Cryptosporidium at the Red Sea Holiday Village in Egypt.

Following a swift resolution of the claim Mrs Martin said that the outcome of her case was excellent.

Mrs Martin praised Simpson Millar commenting ; “All in all a Great Service, fast, easy and no fuss.”

When asked about Paul Stevens, the Group Litigation Claims Manager at Simpson Millar who won the case, Mrs Martin had only one word; “great”.

Disappointment as Holiday Village Cryptosporidium Continues

Paul said, “It is pleasing that we can help people like Mrs Martin to claim the compensation they deserve. However, despite tour operators having to pay more and an more in compensation Cryptosporidium remains a threat if swimming pools are not well maintained.

“We are presently representing people who contracted Cryptosporidium at the Flamingo Beach Holiday Village in Lanzarote.

Cryptosporidium can be caused by faecal contamination of pool water”

“If a tour operator becomes aware of people, putting it bluntly, doing a poo in the hotel pool, they must take steps to clean the pool completely and make sure people do not have their holiday ruined by swimming pool illness.”

Help Available for Holiday Illness

Simpson Millar can help if you have suffered illness on Package Holiday from Tour Operators such as First Choice, Thomson Holidays, Thomas Cook, Easyjet and Airtours.

Paul said “People often think that if stool samples come back negative, you cannot claim compensation against a tour operator. That is not necessarily so. If you notice poor standards of food hygiene on holiday and become ill, the chances are that you have contracted food or water poisoning and Simpson Millar can help you”.
