E. coli is a form of bacteria that can cause serious food poisoning. The main symptoms of E. coli infection include:

  • Stomach cramps.
  • Severe diarrhoea.
  • Vomiting.
  • Fever.
  • Fatigue.

In some cases, E. coli can lead to long-term health conditions, such as kidney and bowel disease.

If you have fallen ill because you’ve eaten or drunk something contaminated with E. coli, you have the right to make E. coli claims.

Compensation can help you make adjustments if you suffer long-term issues, make up for the suffering you experienced due to the infection and also ensure that those responsible are held to account.

Making an E. coli claim

An E. coli outbreak rarely affects one person, so it can be traced back to the product which has caused it.

This helps to trigger product recalls, to minimise the number of people affected.

If you choose to make an E. coli claim, it starts with a meeting with one of our specialist E. coli claims lawyers. We will take your statement to establish exactly what happened, and how you have been affected.

We will then begin to gather supporting evidence, such as medical reports and expert testimony.

Once we have informed the other side of the claim, calculations can begin on an appropriate level of compensation.

Our lawyers understand that compensation money is only one reason to claim for an E. coli infection. It can also help you access ongoing medical care if this is required and ensure that manufacturing processes are improved to reduce the risk of future outbreaks.
