Sol Dunas, Cape Verde, 2017

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury team are concerned to hear of guests falling ill with gastric symptoms whilst on holiday at the Sol Dunas, Cape Verde in March and April 2017.

Guests have reported suffering with symptoms of illness during their holiday at the Sol Dunas. The holidaymakers reported concerns over hygiene standards, including witnessing insects on the food and cutlery, food that was of poor quality, and that staff appeared to be handling raw meat, then cooked meat without having washed their hands. Some guests also reported a lack of clean running water at the resort. The holidaymakers reported suffering food poisoning with symptoms including diarrhoea.

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 the Sol Dunas, 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.

"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."
