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

Legal 500 (2016)

Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda, 2016

The International Personal Injury team at Irwin Mitchell is concerned to learn of illness among guests at the Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda in the Dominican Republic between March and June 2016.
Despite positive reviews of the resort online, we've also learnt of reports regarding tourists who suffered gastric illness during their stay there. One holidaymaker claims that some of the food, such as the hamburgers, was "undercooked"  and that they saw "cooks using the same utensils to put raw meat on the grill as they did to take cooked meat off the grill". Other guests report falling ill with gastric symptoms.
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, 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 to the Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda in the Dominican Republic and became ill, we could help you claim compensation. We specialise in dealing with cases of this nature and we'd 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."
