"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"

Chalet Sonnenalp, Kaprun

Irwin Mitchell is currently acting for holidaymakers who suffered gastric illness following their stay at the Chalet Sonnenalp, Kaprun, Austria in January 2010.

There have been complaints from guests which suggest that there may have been a breakdown in health and hygiene standards, including that food was frequently served cold and was also served uncovered. The establishment was said to be in a state of disrepair, and there was not enough heating provided to guests for the duration of their stay.

The chalet staff were alleged to have passed the illness of as ‘winter fever’. Our clients say that they sought assistance from their tour rep but inadequate assistance was offered to them.

If you have been affected by gastric illness following a stay at the Chalet Sonnenalp, you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday and also the pain and suffering caused by the illness.
