In a previous case our Solicitors helped residents in North Wales to claim compensation when 1,000 people were struck down with Cryptosporidiosis following the contamination of local water supplies.
One of the common gastrointestinal illnesses that can arise due to drinking contaminated water is Cryptosporidiosis. As with many waterborne illnesses, Cryptosporidium is usually spread through consumption of contaminated water or food, or contact with infected faeces. The parasite has an incubation period of two to five days and symptoms to look out for include watery diarrhoea, stomach pain, dehydration and fever and while they usually last several days, they can continue for weeks.
Elderly people & young children are at particular risk of illness, & those with immune problems may also have a more prolonged recovery time.
