Making a claim for illness due to water contamination

Unfortunately, a small number of these trips are ruined because of contaminated water, which can cause a multitude of issues for unsuspecting tourists. From parasites to ear infections, water contaminated with bacteria or viruses can turn a holiday upside-down and leave holidaymakers holed up in their hotel rooms or recovering from illness in hospital.

At Your Legal Friend, we’re experts in holiday compensation cases. If your getaway was ruined by contaminated water, whether on a cruise ship, at a hotel or elsewhere, your tour operator could be at fault and you might be able to make a compensation claim.

Your questions... answered

What are some of the risks of contaminated water abroad?

Contaminated water can cause a variety of illnesses and painful conditions, including:

  • Food poisoning. If fresh fruit or vegetables are washed in contaminated water, or handled by someone who washed their hands in such water, it can cause a serious case of food poisoning. Symptoms include fever, vomiting and diarrhoea.
  • Ear infections. Swimming in contaminated pools can result in bacteria and viruses easily finding their way into the ear – especially in children. Symptoms of ear infections include loss of hearing, earache, fever, facial weakness and restlessness.
  • Renowned as the ‘cruise ship virus’, this waterborne infection can spread rapidly through contained spaces like today’s modern cruise liners. Symptoms include fever, diarrhoea, severe abdominal cramps and even projectile vomiting.

If contaminated water has ruined your holiday, our expert personal injury solicitors will fight your corner to secure the compensation you deserve. Our no-win, no-fee guarantee means you don’t have to worry about paying any upfront legal costs, giving you the extra peace of mind.
