Compensation claims for food poisoning on a package holiday

For many people a holiday can mean a number of different things, whether you are the kind of person who likes to relax, have an adventure or even take in the culture. No matter what type of holiday you prefer though, at some point you are going to be enjoying a nice meal either at a restaurant or on hotel premises and in the majority of cases it will be enjoyable. However, this isn’t always the case and you could end up suffering from food poisoning, leaving you in a fragile state and therefore unable to fully enjoy your holiday.

Food poisoning can be very serious and if not dealt with correctly you could be suffering for an extended period of time. If you suspect that the restaurant where you have eaten have provided you with food that is inadequate and you have suffered, then you could be entitled to make a claim against them for negligence.  

Where might I look to make a claim?

If you have suffered as a result of food poisoning while on a package holiday then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Some common examples of where you might look to claim include:

·         Claims if you have been served out of date food

·         Claims if you have received undercooked food

·         Claims if there was a foreign item in the food you have eaten

·         Claims if the restaurant staff haven’t used appropriate utensils and hygiene

·         Claims if you have suffered from food poisoning.

Who might I be able to make a claim against?

When it comes to making a claim for compensation after suffering from food poisoning while on a package holiday, then there are a number of people who could be at fault including the chef, the manager of the establishment or the restaurant itself. You could become ill at any stage on your holiday after eating unsanitary food – including, restaurants, the hotel or even the in-flight meal you have. If you believe that negligence has occurred during the process of your food being delivered then you could be entitled to make a claim as a result.
