CASE REPORT: Wood and Anor v TUI Travel PLC T/A First Choice [2017] EWCA CIV 11

31 March 2017  

Contaminated food; package travel holidays; reasonable care; transfer of goods

This important package travel case represents a significant coup for claimants in the context of food poisoning cases. Although the package travel industry will be disappointed by the court’s decision, comments in the judgment suggest a demanding approach to establishing causation on the evidence.
