Personal Injury: Quantum Case. Food safety and accidents abroad. Injuries to internal organs with PSLA of £1,000. Duration 11 days. The claimant was three years old when she suffered an acute gastrointestinal illness, including symptoms of fever, diarrhoea, abdominal pain and vomiting during a holiday. Two days later her mother was so concerned about her daughter's welfare that she was taken to hospital. She was put on a drip and kept in hospital overnight, and subsequently discharged with medication to help with the vomiting and diarrhoea. The medical expert advised that the claimant developed infective gastroenteritis while on holiday in Egypt.
