Ballard family, Perdikia Hill Resort
£3,500 compensation success for Leicester family
Holiday Illness Claims have helped a family from Leicester secure £3,500 in holiday illness compensation after uncontrollable vomiting and gastric illness ruined their stay at the Perdikia Hill Resort, Turkey
Rodney Ballard booked a one-week all-inclusive stay at the Perkidika Hill Resort for his family of three and hoped the Hisaronu hotel would provide the perfect backdrop to explore the surrounding areas and celebrate his 30th wedding anniversary to his wife, Mrs Ballard. However, their holiday was ruined when family members suffered severe symptoms of gastric illness throughout the holiday.
On returning home, the family contacted HolidayIllnessClaims for help to receive compensation for their ruined holiday. After bringing a no win no fee claim against their tour operator Thomas Cook, the family were able to receive £3,500 in compensation.

Holiday ruined by gastric illness at Perdikia Hill Resort in Turkey
Soon after the Ballard family arrived at the Thomas Cook promoted Perdikia Hill Resort in Turkey, it became clear that the three-star hotel’s hygiene standards were somewhat below expected levels.
Speaking to the experts at Holiday Illness Claims, Rodney recalls witnessing wasps, birds and flies swarming in the restaurant and feeding from holidaymakers plates.
The trios holiday plans quickly came crashing down when daughter Sarah Ballad, 22, fell severely ill with the symptoms of gastric illness.
Sarah was hospitalised in the resort owing to the severity of her illness and worried mother, Mrs Ballad spent an anxious and restless night at her bedside.
Father Rodney Ballard was the next in line to suffer, leaving the familys Turkish holiday in tatters as they were forced to cancel planned excursions and were left unable to enjoy any of the hotel facilities on offer.
Once back in the UK, Sarahs recovery from illness remained slow and Mr Ballard decided to take legal action, appointing industry leaders Holiday Illness Claims.
