BL Claims was appointed to act on behalf of a holidaymaker who contracted legionnaires as a result of staying at the Diamante Hotel in Calpe, Spain in January 2012.

In the same month, the illness led to the death of three Britons and left thirteen in hospital. It is alleged that the relevant health authority was aware of the illness in mid December 2011 after a holidaymaker contracted the virus. Further evidence suggests that a waitress at the hotel fell ill with the virus over the Christmas period yet the hotel continued to cater for holidaymakers.

Tests reveal that the bacteria were traced to the hotel's plumbing system.

Legionnaire is potentially fatal. It is caused by inhaling water droplets which carry bacteria. The initial symptoms, which tend to consist of having a high fever, chills, cough, muscle aches or headaches, usually appear between 3 to 6 days after the initial infection. Some patients make a full recovery, whereas others do not.
