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

Iberostar Playacar, 2016

Our specialist International Personal Injury Team have been contacted by a family following their stay at the Iberostar Playacar hotel, Mexico in July 2016.

During their stay at the hotel, one holidaymaker began to experience symptoms of gastric illness including severe diarrhoea and vomiting which continued when they returned home. As a result she was admitted to hospital and was later diagnosed with Cryptosporidium.

Jatinder Paul, an Associate Solicitor and specialist in International Personal Injury cases at Irwin Mitchell, said “We are concerned to hear reports of illness at the Iberostar Playacar in Mexico. Unfortunately for these holidaymakers, their holiday was ruined as a result of the illness and will now be remembered for all the wrong reasons. We will now be conducting our own investigations as to the cause of our client’s illness”.

If you also stayed at the Iberostar Playacar in Mexico and suffered gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury team would like to hear from you. You may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, and also the pain and suffering caused by the illness that you have suffered.

"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."
