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

Legal 500 (2016)

Hotel Riu Touareg, 2015

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist international personal injury lawyers have been contacted by holidaymakers who became ill following their stay at the Hotel Riu Touareg, in Cape Verde, during October 2015.

The guests became ill with gastrointestinal illness, with symptoms including diarrhoea, abdominal pain and lethargy.

The holidaymakers noticed that a lot of the food served in the hotel restaurant, such as the burgers, was served lukewarm and appeared to be left out for long periods of time. The guests reported that on occasions, new food appeared to be added to existing food. Holidaymakers also expressed that the hotel pool appeared to have algae and plant matter floating on the surface.

If you have also travelled to the Hotel Riu Touareg in Cape Verde, and subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness or sustained an injury, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of this nature, would like to hear from you.

For more advice on making a holiday claim, please contact Irwin Mitchell on 0800 056 0066 or complete our enquiry form and we will be happy to call you back.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
