WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

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

Legal 500 (2016)

Hotel Riu Touareg, 2016

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury team are concerned to hear of a guest falling ill with symptoms of gastric illness whilst on holiday at Hotel Riu Touareg, Cape Verde in July 2016.

Our International Personal Injury team have been contacted by a holidaymaker who visited the Hotel Riu Touareg in July 2016. Unfortunately, the holidaymaker reports that they fell ill during their holiday with severe diarrhoea, high temperature, fever and nausea. The holidaymaker reports that this led an unpleasant flight back to the UK and that their symptoms only worsened upon their return home. Irwin Mitchell are concerned to note that the holidaymaker was admitted to hospital as a result of their symptoms and that they continue to suffer with symptoms to this date.

The holidaymaker reports that they were concerned to see that at times there were cockroaches around the resort.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury Lawyers know first-hand the potential long term effects that gastric illness can have, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

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