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

Vik Gran Hotel, 2016

We’ve been contacted by a family who fell ill during a holiday to the Vik Gran Hotel in Spain last year in July.

They told us how they all suffered from gastric illness during their holiday, describing symptoms of diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps. Their symptoms were severe enough that they had to seek advice from a local pharmacy and get medication whilst on holiday.

The whole family continued to be ill even when they returned home. Their youngest child had to visit the GP due to her ongoing symptoms.

Although the hotel has garnered some positive reviews online, the family report that food would be left out for long periods of time during breakfast, lunch and dinner, and that sometimes the same dishes from earlier would reappear at different sittings throughout the day.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. We have significant experience helping those unlucky enough to contract gastric illness while on holiday. We’re very aware of the complications that can develop because of such illness, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The effects can sometimes develop into a problem that is long-term, or even permanent.

If you also travelled to the Vik Gran Hotel in Spain and have subsequently been ill, we’d like to hear from you. We specialise in dealing with cases like this and can advise you on claiming compensation for your trip.

"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."
