Over 1,200 Athletes ill - Santo Domingo

Irwin Mitchell have received reports that over 1,200 young athletes have contracted symptoms of gastric illness whilst participating in the 12th Don Bosco Salesian National Games in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in late April 2010.

It has been suggested that 22 of them were hospitalised due to suspected food poisoning, possibly due to the poor food hygiene and food preparation standards.

If you also travelled to the Dominican Republic as part of this group and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell 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.

For more advice on making a holiday illness claim, contact us on 0800 056 0066 or complete our enquiry form and we will call you back.

"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."
