WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

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

Jaz Mirabel Beach

Irwin Mitchell has learned that a number of holidaymakers staying at the Jaz Mirabel Park resort in Egypt are again returning from their holidays complaining of severe gastric illness.

We are instructed to act on behalf of clients who suffered illness resulted from holidays taken at the hotel during June, July and August 2011. We have one reported case of Shigella and we are waiting for the Tour Operator to confirm its position on liability. We are also acting for clients who holidayed at the Jaz Mirabel Park resort in the summers of 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 who also fell ill with severe gastric symptoms, allegedly as a result of the poor standards of food hygiene at the hotel.

It is alarming to learn that such problems continue at the hotel, with recent reports suggesting that holidaymakers have contracted serious bacterial infections as a result of a breakdown in food hygiene procedures. Such infections can leave permanent symptoms including an alteration of bowel habit, stomach pains and irritable bowel syndrome.

Reports indicate that the cause of the gastric illnesses may have been due to the poor quality of food and lack of hygiene standards practised at the hotel with reports of insects around food serving stations. Holidaymakers have also reported that food was served undercooked and recycled food was displayed uncovered for long periods of time. It is reported that guests suffered from symptoms including violent diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps.

If you also stayed at this hotel and suffered gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell would like to hear from you as you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, and also, 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."
