Holidaymaker Claims for Salmonella at the Sharm Plaza Hotel - July 2013

Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors have been instructed to act for a holidaymaker who was diagnosed with salmonella following his stay at the Sharm Plaza hotel in July of this year.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time that someone has returned from the Sharm Plaza in Egypt with salmonella food poisoning.

A man from Salford who stayed at the hotel in January/ February 2012 instructed us to help him when he was struck down with salmonella and required hospital treatment.

A lady from Manchester stayed at the hotel in October of last year was also diagnosed with salmonella following bouts of sickness and diarrhoea whilst staying at the hotel.

Holiday Hotel Watch

All of the clients that we represent travelled with Egyptian holiday specialist, Red Sea Holidays, who are a UK based tour operator.

Salmonella is a form of bacteria which is often found in undercooked meat and poultry. The chances of contracting most strains of the germ can be reduced by adopting basic food hygiene procedures such as cooking food to the right temperatures and making sure raw and cooked meat is prepared and stored separately.

Salmonella can cause gastroenteritis resulting in vomiting, diarrhoea, nausea and severe stomach cramps.

If you have suffered traveller’s diarrhoea during your stay at the Sharm Plaza in Sharm El Sheikh, we may be able to help you claim compensation against Red Sea Holidays or any other UK tour operator that features the hotel.

You do not necessarily need to have tested positive for salmonella, following bouts of sickness and diarrhoea, to initiate a claim for compensation. As long as you consumed most of your meals at the hotel and you booked with a UK Tour Operator under a package holiday deal, it is likely that we would be able to help you.

The fact that others have tested positive for germs at the Sharm Plaza Hotel is likely to make your claims stronger should you wish to instruct us.

All you have to do if you would like to consider instructing us is call us on 0808 145 1353 or email us using the enquiry form and one of our holiday lawyers will give you a call to discuss what happened.
