Illness at the Concorde el Salam, Sharm el Sheikh

Recent reports suggest that problems are being experienced by holidaymakers who have travelled to the Concorde El Salam, Egypt.
Irwin Mitchell is currently pursuing a claim against Thomas Cook for clients who suffered illness and appalling conditions at the Concorde El Salam, Egypt in the summer of 2010.
The conditions at the hotel in question have given rise to a number of complaints. The conditions and epidemiology described would indicate that the likely source of the infection was contaminated food provided as part of our clients' package holiday. Our clients reported that the food was cold and that there were flies surrounding the food.
Irwin Mitchell previously acted for clients in 2008 and 2009 who pursued claims against a tour operator. This highlights the repeat problems in regards to the standards of hygiene that have occurred at this hotel.
If you have recently travelled to this hotel and encountered problems, whether it has resulted in an accident or illness, Irwin Mitchell is keen to hear from you as our International Travel Litigation Group are highly experienced in recovering money on behalf of holidaymakers who have suffered from gastric illness. 
If you also travelled to this hotel and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell would like to hear from you as you may be entitled to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, and also the pain and suffering caused by the illness that you sustained.

"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."
