    How to claim chicken salmonella compensation


    Most of us know that chicken has to be cooked thoroughly and at the proper temperature for it to be safe to eat. Salmonella is associated with undercooked chicken, and it is one of the main causes of food poisoning as well. While many chickens are found to have the salmonella bacteria present when they are raw, proper preparation and cooking methods will ensure the bacteria is killed before the chicken is ready to eat.

    When you visit a restaurant or you have a takeaway of some kind, you would expect any chicken dishes you receive to be cooked properly so there is no risk of falling ill as a result of undercooked chicken finding its way into the dish. However, while this is largely the case, there are isolated circumstances when people are not so lucky.

    How do you know if you could claim?

    In order to claim for chicken salmonella compensation, you will need proof that the restaurant was to blame for making you ill. Similarly, if you ate at a buffet, perhaps at a wedding or similar event that was catered, you should find out whether other people fell ill as well. This will help provide proof that the staff were negligent in providing improperly-cooked chicken as one of the dishes.

    Accident Advice Helpline speaks with people every now and then who have suffered from food poisoning caused by undercooked chicken. While chicken is a favourite dish of many, it can really put you off eating it if you have been made ill because you were faced with a poorly-cooked dish.
