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

Legal 500 (2016)

Memories Splash Punta Cana, 2016

Our specialist International Personal Injury Team have been contacted by a family of holidaymakers following their stay at the Memories Splash Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in May 2016.

During their stay at the hotel, some members of the family began to experience symptoms of gastric illness, including diarrhoea and vomiting. These symptoms continued when they returned home. The guests also noticed flies around the food in the restaurant area.

This is not the first time the Memories Splash Punta Cana has had a less than perfect review. Earlier this year, we were contacted by another family who had also become ill during their stay there.

Jatinder Paul, an Associate Solicitor and specialist in International Personal Injury cases at Irwin Mitchell, said: "We are concerned to hear reports of illness at the Memories Splash Punta Cana hotel. Unfortunately for these holidaymakers, their holiday was ruined as a result of the illness and will now be remembered for all the wrong reasons. We will now be conducting our own investigations as to the cause of our clients' illness".

If you also stayed at the Memories Splash Punta Cana hotel and suffered gastric illness, our specialist International Personal Injury team would like to hear from you as you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday - as well as the pain and suffering caused by the illness that you have suffered.

"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."
