Cyprus is undoubtedly a wonderful holiday destination for tourists seeking sun, sea and sand. But in rare circumstances, things can go awry, leaving some holidaymakers facing illness or injury through no fault of their own. From food poisoning to accidents in the airport, there are a multitude of things which can ruin a holiday to Cyprus – things which have caused many of our clients to make a compensation claim.
Travel bugs – salmonella, food poisoning, diarrhea
Poor hygiene standards in hotels and resorts have been known to trigger mass causes of food poisoning among hotel guests, leaving many of them confined to their hotel rooms for the duration of their holiday. Salmonella and diarrhea contracted from undercooked or contaminated food are real risks when visiting Cyprus.
Swimming pools that aren’t cleaned regularly can also be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria that can quickly ruin a holidaymaker’s dream trip. We’ve pursued a multitude of Cyprus compensation claims for holidaymakers who have experienced travel bugs of all kinds.
Trips, slips or falls
Many of the hotels in Cyprus feature majestic lobbies made from stunning marble or tiles – and while they can look wonderfully grand and elegant, these slippery floors can be the cause of serious accidents and injuries. Wet floors that haven’t been marked can be dangerous for holidaymakers of all ages, but especially children and the elderly, who aren’t as steady on their feet.
Here at Your Legal Friend, we can pursue personal injury compensation for those who have slipped or tripped in their hotel or at another location.
Excursions, coach trips and road traffic accidents
When visiting Cyprus, it’s likely you’ll want to venture out of your hotel on a trip, an excursion or some kind of tour. Unfortunately, these outings present many opportunities for accident or injury, with chaotic traffic conditions in many of the island’s cities and poor health and safety regulations across the country.
These claims can also stretch to airports – if you’ve been injured boarding or disembarking a plane, retrieving your luggage from the carousel or being transferred to your hotel, you could have a claim.
