WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

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

Legal 500 (2016)

Rixos Sharm El Sheikh

Irwin Mitchell have been contacted by a British couple who travelled to the Rixos, Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt, in September 2016. Both became ill with symptoms including diarrhoea and stomach cramps.

Despite some positive reviews, the couple who stayed in September 2016 noticed that some of the food served was lukewarm and some of the meat appeared undercooked. On occasions some of the food appeared re heated and they saw cockroaches around the hotel.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in the 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 have travelled to the Rixos, Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt and subsequently suffered from 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.

"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."
