Salmonella and Dysentery at the Club Voyage Hotel in Side, Turkey
Solicitors are taking action after an outbreak of gastric illness has affected dozens of British holidaymakers at the exclusive Club Voyage Hotel in Side, Turkey.
Hotel guests reporting their symptoms in Internet chat rooms are saying they suffered from Salmonella poisoning and Amoebic Dysentery, one person wrote “This seems to be a very serious outbreak and I hope Thomas Cook takes it seriously. Certainly this deserves some kind of compensation in terms of doctor and hospital fees”.
Andrew Morton, the senior travel litigation lawyer with Manchester law firm Pannone LLP, reports they have received instructions to act on behalf of holidaymakers staying at The Club Voyage Hotel, located in Side in Turkey, as their holidays were ruined by violent bouts of vomiting and sickness. It is possible that hundreds of people from the UK were affected.
Andrew Morton said “Our clients are reporting a widespread outbreak of Salmonella poisoning and Dysentery during March and April where the guests have been described as ‘dropping like flies’. The hotel is an ‘all inclusive’ which makes it very likely indeed that the source of the illness is coming from the hotel.
“We have been contacted by a number of holidaymakers, all from the Club Voyage Hotel and it is obvious that there is an urgent need for standards of hygiene to be investigated. It is only by legal action that tour operators will sit-up and take action. It is believed that many of the stricken holidaymakers booked their package holidays through Thomas Cook.
“I would urge all those affected to come forward as we are perusing a multi-action law suit seeking personal injury compensation for all the people who were affected, on a no win, no fee basis.
“British tourists who suffer a personal injury or food poisoning whilst on holiday can sue UK tour operators provided that the holiday was a package which includes travel and accommodation”.
