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

Legal 500 (2016)

Hyatt Regency Hotel

Irwin Mitchell represented 2 families whose holidays at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in summer 2004 were ruined by an outbreak of gastroenteritis, including confirmed Shigella, which caused them to fall ill. Some of the holidaymakers later developed Crohn's disease and Colitis as a direct result of their holiday illnesses.

Our clients had complained about the poor standard of the hotel, the lack of cleanliness in and around the swimming pools and generally poor food hygiene standards.

Tour operator Longwood Holidays Limited denied liability but despite this we succeeded in recovering over £31,000 in compensation for our clients. The tour operator also agreed to cover their legal costs.

"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."
