i booked a package holiday to mexico for myself partner and 3 year old son, on our first day my son cut his toe quite badly on a broken tile in the swimming pool it was treated at the side of the pool by the life guard who is a first aider he stated that it did not need doctors or hospital treatment and adviced we stay out of the pool for a few days however the wound kept opening and bleeding so we took him to the resort doctor 3 days later who glued the toe and we were then told to stay out of the pool for a further 5-7 days. its now day 11 of the holiday and we take my son back to the pool within a hour the wound opens up again. on our return to the uk i took my son to the local A&E who have stated the wound should never have been glued as its on the joint and they can see where it has repeatedly reopened. my question is really as i want to make a complaint to Virgin who we booked with is how much could i possible ask as way of compensation bearing in mind this holiday cost £5000 and we spent a further £2000 taking my son on trips that did not involve water the holiday was ruined due to this injury.
