Can I Claim Compensation for Sickness Bug at Butlins Bognor Regis – May 2013

Simpson Millar Solicitors are specialist food poisoning lawyers that help people make compensation claims against travel companies.

Holiday Compensation

Amid reports on Tripadvisor of an illness problem at the Butlins Resort in Bognor Regis, “campers” will want to know whether they are entitled to claim compensation.

Help with Compensation Claim against Butlins

We will be able to help you claim compensation if the cause of the infection was due to the fault of those responsible for your safety.

The operators of the Butlins hotel must take measures to ensure that the food and drink are safe and are free from harmful bacteria that cause stomach bugs including Salmonella, E. coli and Cryptosporidium.

They must also ensure that the hotel is kept clean to prevent the spread of infections such as Norovirus.

If the stomach bug was transmitted from person to person and the operators of Butlines warned people in advance about the potential for a stomach infection, it may be that they can avoid liability to compensate holidaymakers.

Holiday Hotel Watch

However, if the illness was caused by contaminated food or water, it is far more likely that you would be able to claim compensation from Butlins because staff employed by the hotel could have taken better steps to ensure guest safety.
