WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

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

Legal 500 (2016)

Sunscape Bavaro Punta Cana - 2017

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury team is concerned to hear about guests falling ill with symptoms of gastric illness whilst on holiday at Sunscape Dominican Beach Punta Cana, Dominican Republic during February and July 2017.

Despite positive reviews, Irwin Mitchell have learnt of reports regarding holidaymakers who fell ill during a stay at the hotel. One holidaymaker claims that they noticed that “none of the kitchen staff wore gloves when preparing food”. Other holidaymakers report falling ill with gastric symptoms with one couple testing positive for Salmonella. 

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’s specialist International Personal Injury Lawyers know the potential long term effects that gastric illness can have, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

If you also travelled to the Sunscape Bavaro Beach Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and subsequently suffered symptoms of gastric illness or sustained an injury, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
