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

Legal 500 (2016)

Bahia Principe, Tenerife

Irwin Mitchell Solicitors have successfully concluded a claim against TUI UK Limited on behalf of holidaymakers that fell ill whilst staying at the Bahia Principe, Tenerife, Spain, in the summer of 2009.

Our client's holiday was ruined when their child contracted a fungal infection known as Pseudomonas Pyocyaneus.  Due to the infection, Ethan suffered from both flaking and cracking of the feet, and flaking of the hands, which was very painful for him to cope with. It was claimed that the infection was caused by inadequate chlorination of the pool.

Tour operator TUI UK Limited denied they were at fault and formal legal proceedings were then issued against them. TUI agreed to settle the case and Irwin Mitchell recovered over £5,000 in compensation for the family.
