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

Legal 500 (2016)

Royal Caribbean Cruise, 2015

Irwin Mitchell’s international personal injury specialists have been contacted by a passenger who was taken ill whilst travelling on the Royal Caribbean Cruise, in May 2015. The passenger has reported suffering from symptoms of gastric illness.

The passenger has expressed experiencing diarrhoea and stomach cramps whilst on the vessel. The woman also claims that she has had to visit her GP after returning home because she was still suffering from ongoing diarrhoea and stomach cramps. The passenger continues to suffer with her symptoms and has also suggested that others fell ill during her cruise.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in the stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness we know first-hand the potential long term effects that can be associated with such illness, with sometimes permanent long term complications arising such as Post infective Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  

If you also travelled on the Royal Caribbean Cruise and subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, we would like to hear from you as you may be entitled to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, and also the pain and suffering caused by the illness that you sustained.

"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."
