    How to claim pub food poisoning compensation


    Pubs are great places to go for a quick drink. However, most pubs have a nice line in food as well. This gives you the chance to enjoy anything from a bag of crisps to some real ‘pub grub’ while you are there.

    While the majority of pubs take every precaution to make sure they provide only the very best food for their customers, things can potentially go wrong at times. There are strict food safety laws that must always be followed in these circumstances, and if this doesn’t happen it could mean you end up with food poisoning as a result.

    How many people try claiming for pub food poisoning compensation?

    Fortunately very few people find themselves in a situation where they could claim this. This is due in part to the fact that few pubs ever fall down on their obligations in this area. They take the greatest care to ensure they have good procedures in place that mean food is stored and used in the proper manner. Staff are trained in handling and preparing food of all kinds, so there is no danger that anything might go awry.

    Of course we all know that food poisoning can still occasionally occur. If you have eaten out in a pub at any point in the last three years, and you suffered from food poisoning as a result, there is a chance you could end up getting pub food poisoning compensation.

    How do you find out if this is the case?

    Obviously, having food poisoning alone is not enough. You have to be able to prove the pub was to blame for your illness. This is why it is always advisable to seek the advice of a lawyer who understands the processes required to look into claims like this. Accident Advice Helpline employs lawyers with extensive experience in this area, so it becomes easier to find out the answers you need when you call our team.
