Geourgiopolis Resort and Aqua Park, 2016

Our International Personal Injury team has received a report of gastric illness among guests at the Georgioupolis Resort and Aqua Park in Greece during May 2016.

We've heard that two members of the same family fell ill during their holiday at the resort, suffering diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal pains and lethargy. One tourist had to seek medical attention upon her return to the UK as she was continuing to suffer with these symptoms - and was diagnosed with suspected salmonella infection.  

Salmonella infection is a bacterial disease in the intestine - the same group of bacteria that can cause typhoid fever, food poisoning, gastroenteritis, enteric fever and other serious illnesses. Holidaymakers become infected mostly through contaminated water or foods: especially meat, poultry and eggs.

Despite some positive reviews of the hotel online, other guests have expressed concern that food was sometimes left uncovered, such as the chicken at a grill section in the restaurant.

We specialise in helping victims of illness outbreaks in the UK and abroad to gain justice. The team have successfully represented victims who have fallen ill in such outbreaks and have recovered compensation for tens of thousands of illness victims in the UK and abroad.

If you also travelled to this resort and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, we'd like to hear from you.
