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

Legal 500 (2016)

Melia Benidorm, 2017

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist international personal injury lawyers have been contacted by a holidaymaker who suffered illness following their stay at the Melia Benidorm, Spain, during May 2017.

Despite positive reviews, Irwin Mitchell have learnt of complaints by holidaymakers following a stay at the hotel.

It is reported that food served in the hotel restaurant was sometimes served undercooked or uncovered. It is also reported that on one occasion that sick and urine was witnessed in the hotel lift.

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, we know first-hand the potential long term conditions that can be associated with it, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

If you also travelled to the Melia Benidorm and subsequently suffered symptoms of illness, we’d like to hear from you. We specialise in dealing with cases of this nature and could help you claim compensation.
