If you fall ill at work or on holiday, you may think it is merely bad luck, and that may be the case. On many occasions when someone suffers sudden sickness, no single party is responsible. However, there are times when you may contract an illness that could have been avoided had people taken adequate care when carrying out their duties.
Even if you have had the misfortune to suffer holiday sickness while abroad, The Compensation Experts can help you claim compensation to cover damages and expenses you have incurred.
What is a Sickness Compensation Claim?
You may be able to make a sickness claim if you suspect your illness was the result of negligence or error. Examples of illness compensation claims are:
- Norovirus spread through inadequate hygiene practices of staff, such as not cleaning contaminated surfaces or washing their hands correctly
- Food poisoning from cooking, handling or storing food improperly
- Blisters and infected bites from bedbugs on a package holiday
A typical example of a sickness compensation claim was a family who all fell ill while staying at a Spanish holiday resort. It was found that illness was being spread due to failings by restaurant staff to adequately clean down tables and highchairs in between use, and pool staff to adhere to an acceptable cleaning system. The family’s youngest child had to be hospitalised, delaying their return home. The family were awarded damages for their sickness, and also received payment to cover the additional expenses they incurred due to not being able to go home on their planned date.
Claiming Compensation for Sickness
Claiming compensation is not as simple as merely stating your intent. It requires you, as the claimant, to prove not only that you have suffered a genuine illness, but that it was the direct result of another party’s negligence.

One aspect we know can put people off starting any legal proceeding is the cost involved. We make it simple with our No Win No Fee* agreement that means you do not have to pay any legal fees in advance of receiving compensation and if your claim is not agreed, any legal fees at all.
There is no reason you should suffer financially due to another person’s error. Compensation will give you the money you need to access the treatment that will allow you to recover and move forward.
