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

Legal 500 (2016)

Royalton Punta Cana, 2014

Specialist international personal injury lawyers at Irwin Mitchell have been instructed by a couple following their stay at the Royalton Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in December 2014.

The couple travelled to the hotel in the Dominican Republic for a relaxing holiday, however, illness soon struck both of them as they suffered with symptoms including diarrhoea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

The holidaymakers have reported that some of the food was left uncovered and flies were frequently seen in the restaurant, especially around the buffet area. The guests have also stated that on one occasion, excrement was seen in the swimming pool.

Jatinder Paul, a solicitor at Irwin Mitchell, said: “This was supposed to be a relaxing holiday for this couple, instead they suffered with serious illnesses and the holiday will now be remembered for all the wrong reasons.”

If you have travelled to the Royalton Punta Cana and subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, we would like to hear from you.”
