When you choose to stay at a B&B the appeal of having breakfast included in the price of your room for the night is clearly a nice one. Whether you opt for toast and cereal or a full English breakfast with sausages, egg and bacon, you can get a great start to the day without worrying about cooking anything yourself.
Imagine then how uncomfortable and disappointing it would be if you ended up getting food poisoning from this experience. Whatever you had planned for the day ahead would no doubt end up being cancelled, as you got to grips with suffering the symptoms you would normally associate with food poisoning. It wouldn’t be what you had in mind, would it?
Does this mean you could claim B&B food poisoning compensation?
Certainly – if you can prove you contracted the food poisoning from the B&B you stayed in, this would definitely be a real possibility. You might end up trying to get proof that other guests suffered from food poisoning as well. It is sometimes possible to narrow down the offending food simply by seeing what other people had to eat.
Some people decide to call in a professional injury compensation lawyer to help them move ahead with a claim. This is far easier and more convenient than trying to go through the process on your own. There are many companies around that offer this service, including Accident Advice Helpline for example.
