Personal Injury: Quantum Case. Accidents abroad. Injuries to internal organs, food poisoning. PSLA of £1850. The claimant suffered a gastrointestinal illness, including symptoms of sickness, fever, diarrhoea and abdominal pain after a family holiday to Egypt. She was treated with Imodium to help alleviate her symptoms, which lasted around four weeks. It was likely that the claimant's gastroenteritis resulted from ingesting water from the hotel swimming pool, or food or drink which had become contaminated due to poor standards of hygiene at the hotel.
