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

Legal 500 (2016)

Memories Jibacoa, 2017

The International Personal Injury Team at Irwin Mitchell are concerned by recent reports of guests falling ill with gastric symptoms during holidays taken at the Memories Jibacoa in Cuba between November 2017 and January 2018.

Despite positive reviews of the resort online, Irwin Mitchell have seen reports of holidaymakers falling ill during their stay, with one claiming that there was “no water at night and no water for 1 full day”. Another says that some of the food was “cold” and that they had to ask “for food to be reheated”. Other holidaymakers report falling ill with gastric symptoms and one claims that they were diagnosed with a Salmonella infection.

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 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 have travelled to the Memories Jibacoa in Cuba and subsequently fallen ill, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
