Gavimar La Mirada Club Resort, Spain, 2016

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury team is concerned to hear reports of a family falling ill with symptoms of gastric illness whilst staying at the Gavimar La Mirada Club Resort, Spain in July 2016.

Our International Personal Injury team has been contacted by a family who suffered gastric illness during their stay the Gavimar La Mirada Club Resort. What was supposed to be a special holiday to celebrate a birthday was ruined when the family fell ill.

They reported a number of hygiene concerns regarding the food at the hotel. For example, they noticed undercooked chicken that was pink inside. They further reported that food had been left out for over 4 hours, and old buffet was topped with new buffet food, and cutlery and crockery was often dirty. They were extremely concerned to hear that faeces had been found in the hotel pool on a number of occasions during their stay. The entire family fell ill with symptoms of gastric illness including vomiting, diarrhoea, fever and abdominal pain.

Irwin Mitchell are concerned to note that the family continues to suffer with symptoms of gastric illness. 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 have also travelled to the Gavimar La Mirada Club Resort, Spain and subsequently suffered 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.
