A group of 58 holidaymakers instructed Irwin Mitchell to bring an action for damages against Airtours after suffering gastroenteritis during cruise ship holidays in the Caribbean in 1998.
Nearly all the clients became ill, suffering with gastric illnesses of a viral nature. Several clients complained of suffering tiredness, lethargy, weight loss and other long term symptoms.
Following negotiations between the parties, the Defendant agreed liability and awarded damages of over £250,000.
