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

Legal 500 (2016)

Tiran Island Hotel, 2015

Irwin Mitchell’s international personal injury experts have been contacted by a British couple who have recently travelled to the Tiran Island Hotel, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, during September 2015.

The holidaymakers reported that they fell ill during their all-inclusive stay at the hotel which had been booked to celebrate their engagement. The couple suffered from symptoms including diarrhoea and vomiting which resulted in them having to seek advice from a local pharmacy. Unfortunately their symptoms continued on their return home.

Despite the hotel having some positive reviews, the couple have expressed that they were served some food which they felt was undercooked. They also described that some of the hot and cold foods were not served at the right temperature. Furthermore, the guests claim that some of the food appeared to have been reheated and re-served. Other holidaymakers have described the food as repetitive and have referred to suffering from “upset stomachs”

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 Tiran Island Hotel 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."
