Food Poisoning Claims

Get in touch

When you order food anywhere, you put trust in the establishment that they are preparing your food properly.

If they fail to do this, you could end up suffering food poisoning. If this has happened to you, you should consider making a food poisoning compensation claim.

There can be many causes of food poisoning, such as:

  • Not cooking food thoroughly.
  • Storing food incorrectly.
  • Serving chilled food at higher temperatures.
  • Using the same utensils for cooked and raw food.

If it is improperly prepared, any food can lead to contamination. However, particular risk factors are meat, seafood and dairy.

At best, food poisoning symptoms are unpleasant, at worst, they can be lethal. That is why it is so important to make a food poisoning compensation claim if you have been affected.

Making a food poisoning compensation claim

Depending on the severity, the symptoms of food poisoning can last a long time. These include:

  • Sickness.
  • Diarrhoea.
  • Fever.
  • Stomach cramps.
  • Fatigue.

It is important to seek immediate medical attention if you are experiencing food poisoning symptoms. While mild cases may be treated by rest and taking in plenty of fluids, more severe cases may require hospital treatment.

You can wait until you have recovered before making your claim.

A food poisoning compensation claim starts with a meeting with one of our personal injury lawyers. We will take your statement, which is important to establish exactly what happened.

We will then thoroughly investigate the incident, and gather supporting evidence. This can include:

  • Food hygiene reports.
  • Medical records.
  • Expert testimony.

We will then begin the claim. This can include helping you to access expert medical care to aid your recovery.

Most personal injury claims are settled out of court. However, if court action is needed, we have the resources and experience to represent you.
