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

Legal 500 (2016)

Intercontinental Hotel, Mauritius

The International Travel Litigation team Irwin Mitchell, which specialises in cases of food poisoning in the UK and abroad, has been contacted by a holidaymaker after their return from the InterContinental Hotel in Mauritius.

After booking a holiday to celebrate her 50th birthday and her 30th wedding anniversary one holiday maker has received hospital treatment after being diagnosed with Hepatitis A and she is currently receiving medical treatment for the condition.

Hepatitis A can cause many symptoms of illness including diarrhoea, vomiting and fever as well as symptoms as serious as jaundice, liver inflammation and liver failure.

It is normally spread via food and can be prevented by good hygiene, especially hand washing and safe drinking water and food.

Guests at the Inter Continental have complained about birds in the buffet restaurant landing on food, food being re served and noticed that the staff who were handling the food were not wearing gloves.

If you have suffered from gastric illness following your stay at the InterContinental in Mauritius, Irwin Mitchell would like to hear from you as you may be able to claim for the pain and suffering caused by the illness that you sustained. 

For more advice on making an illness claim, contact Irwin Mitchell 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."
