Holiday Food Poisoning Allegations Investigated by Solicitors

September 25th, 2016 | By injuryclaims


The claims made by a British couple concerning the contraction of food poisoning at a three-star holiday resort in Crete will be investigated by a team of personal injury solicitors.

The incident occurred when William and Leanda Kidley holidayed in the Katrin Suites Resort in Stalis, Crete, in August 2015. Towards the end of their break, William began to feel ill and presented flu-like symptoms. When the couple returned to the UK, the Transport Support Manager also developed diarrhoea  in addition to his other symptoms.

William then visited his GP, who referred him to Warrington General Hospital for diagnostics. The tests concluded that William had contracted campylobacter food poisoning, and he was immediately admitted to hospital. Despite spending a week in hospital care, William has – to date – not fully recovered from the illness.

As William began his recovery, the couple consulted a personal injuries solicitor. The believed that the allegedly poor standard of hygiene at the resort was the cause of William’s illness, and have requested that their solicitors investigate this claim. The couple booked through FlexibleTrips, operated by Thomas Cook, and the company have already stated that if a link can be made between the hygiene practices at the resort and William’s diagnosis, they will offer compensation.

Amongst their allegations, the couple claim that the food at the resort was often undercooked or left out uncovered all day. They also claim that they frequently saw flies around chilled food.

Leanda, speaking to her local press, has commented that “The last thing we ever expected when we booked the holiday was for either of us to end up in hospital going through tests to find out exactly what was wrong. William missed time off work because of the problems he was having and it took him a long time for his stamina to improve and even now he has not made a full recovery.”
