Gastric Illness Amongst Holidaymakers In Jamaica

Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa, Montego Bay

Irwin Mitchell solicitors are concerned to read reports of gastric illness at the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa in Jamaica in May and June 2013.    

It is reported that a holidaymaker staying at this resort has contracted a serious bacterial infection called Salmonella, and suffered severe gastric symptoms as a result, which may have contributed to them suffering with poor kidney function as a result requiring hospitalisation.

Reports indicate that the cause of the gastric illnesses may have been due to the poor hygiene standards at the hotel and particular concern was raised about cats wandering around the grounds. 

If you have also travelled to this hotel 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.

For more advice on making a holiday illness claim, contact us on 0800 056 0066 or complete our enquiry form and we will call you back.

"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."
