How much is my holiday illness compensation claim worth?
The latest edition (13th edition) of the Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases places the following values on claims for food poisoning:
£31,120 – £43,890 – Severe toxicosis causing serious acute pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, and fever, requiring hospital admission for some days or weeks and some continuing incontinence, haemorrhoids and irritable bowel syndrome, having a significant impact on ability to work and enjoyment of life.
£7,980 – £16,060 – Serious but short lived food poisoning, diarrhoea and vomiting diminishing over two to four weeks with some remaining discomfort and disturbance of bowel function and impact on sex life and enjoyment of food over a few years. Any symptoms having these consequences and lasting for longer, even indefinitely, are likely to merit an award between the top of this bracket and the bottom of the bracket above.
£3,300 – £7,980 – Food poisoning causing significant discomfort, stomach cramps, alteration of bowel function and fatigue. Hospital admission for some days with symptoms lasting for a few weeks but complete recovery within a year or two.
£770 – £3,300 – Varying degrees of disabling pain, cramps, and diarrhoea continuing for some days or weeks.
In addition to the amount that you can claim for General Damages, that is pain, suffering and loss of amenity i.e. your illness, you can also claim for the days of your holiday ruined by illness and the loss of enjoyment of the holiday, lost earnings and the cost of medical treatment abroad and any other reasonable financial losses incurred as a result of your illness.
