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

Iberostar Bavaro, December 2014

Irwin Mitchell’s International Personal Injury team are investigating the Iberostar Bavaro in the Dominican Republic after receiving concerning reports from a family following their stay in December 2014.

The family of five stayed at the resort for 14 nights and were celebrating a 50th birthday and 25th wedding anniversary. Two members of the group became ill nine days into their stay after the contracted gastric illness. They experienced diarrhoea and severe stomach cramps.

One holidaymaker was admitted to hospital for two nights. He was administered antibiotics and an IV drip before reportedly being diagnosed with E-coli as a result of his stay at the hotel.

International Personal Injury specialist, Jatinder Paul, said: “This was supposed to be a special holiday for the family as they booked their stay to celebrate a milestone birthday and a 50th wedding anniversary.

“Instead their time was ruined by severe gastric illness and it will be remembered by the family for all the wrong reasons.”

If you have travelled to the Iberostar Bavaro and subsequently suffered from gastric illness, or sustained an injury, we would like to hear from you.
