WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY
"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"
Legal 500 (2016)
Seabank Resort, 2016
We're concerned to learn that guests at the Seabank Resort in Malta became ill during their stay there in June 2016.
Our International Personal Injury team have been contacted by a family of four who travelled to the resort and subsequently developed severe diarrhoea, nausea and lethargy. The holidaymakers had suspicions that the meat served at the resort was sometimes not cooked properly - the chicken in particular seemed to be undercooked. The family were concerned that at times buffet food was being topped up with new food, rather than the old food being replaced, and that on occasions some foods were served lukewarm. Those affected by illness had to seek medical treatment. The holidaymakers also noted complaints about the quality of the resort facilities, for example there were at times cigarette butts in the pool and they reported that the pool area was littered.
Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury Lawyers know first-hand the potential long term effects that gastric illness can have, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
If you also travelled to the Seabank Resort, Malta and subsequently suffered symptoms of gastric illness or sustained an injury, we want to hear from you. Irwin Mitchell specialises in dealing with cases of this nature and could help you claim compensation.
