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

Legal 500 (2016)

Grand Paradise Samana Hotel, Dominican Republic

The specialist International Travel Litigation Team here at Irwin Mitchell are concerned for holidaymakers after reading reports of gastric illness, at  the  Grand Paradise Samana, in Dominican Republic.  

Worryingly, it has been reported that guests who travelled to the hotel during March 2012, have been falling ill with symptoms of gastric illnesses. Holidaymakers reported that they were suffering from nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and severe stomach cramps.  It is also reported that guests were having to attend the hospital due to their illnesses and put onto an IV drip in an attempt to rehydrate their bodies.  

It is not the first time our concerns have been raised in relation to this hotel.  Irwin Mitchell is currently acting on behalf of holidaymakers who suffered severe gastric illness in 2010. Irwin Mitchell have previously acted on behalf of a group of holiday makers who suffered gastric illness at the Grand Paradise Samana in 2008. Within this group one client had confirmed salmonella food poisoning. It is concerning to note that holidaymakers are still suffering from illness many years later it is likely that a breakdown in food hygiene and food handling procedures at the hotel resulted in the illness.  

If you also travelled to this resort and have subsequently suffered from 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 if you.
