After being rushed to hospital, Smith died shortly later due to a build-up of fluid in the brain and lungs.

She was staying at the five star Salamis Bay Conti Hotel in Cyprus when she died.

The mix-up was caused by a maid who had put cleaner into the smaller bottle after not wanting to take a larger bottle around with her.

The hotel’s gross negligence was criticised through a narrative verdict issued by coroner Robin Balmain. 

Walsall coroner’s court heard that the cleaner was released without charge.

Compensation for holiday claims

If you are away on holiday then the chances are that the last thing you are considering is making a compensation claim and if you do find yourself in this situation then it can be an incredibly traumatising experience.

Unfortunately if you are away from home in another country then there is every possibility that you might need to make a compensation claim, and if you do find yourself in this situation then you may consider claiming against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you.
