Illness at the Palm Gardens Hotel, Turkey, 2016

Our specialist International Personal Injury Team have been contacted by a family of holidaymakers following their stay at the Palm Gardens Hotel in Turkey in August 2016.

During their stay at the hotel, all 5 holidaymakers began to experience symptoms of gastric illness including severe diarrhoea and vomiting which continued when they returned home. One member of the was admitted to hospital as a result and required antibiotics which were administered through an intravenous drip.

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

If you have also travelled to the Palm Gardens Hotel in Turkey 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.

"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."
