Claiming compensation for campylobacter poisoning

Campylobacter is a strain of bacteria which is a common cause of food poisoning. The symptoms may include vomiting, diarrhoea, nausea and stomach cramps but may vary depending on how much of the poisoned food is consumed. Fever may be experienced, but symptoms usually disappear after a few days of rest if the infection is mild.

If you experience symptoms of fever which last longer than a few days or you think you are suffering from dehydration, you may need treatment from a doctor. This bacteria is mainly found in raw meat, particularly poultry, but it can also be found in untreated water or unpasteurised milk. Animals can also transmit the infection to people.

People who work on farms or in the meat industry may be more susceptible to contracting the infection, but it is also commonly spread when food is undercooked. Cooking meat thoroughly ensures that the bacteria is killed off or becomes harmless to humans which is why food safety and hygiene is so important in restaurants and at home.

If you have suffered food poisoning, think about the places you have eaten and what foods you have consumed over the last few days. If you think it may be contributed to a restaurant or other food establishment, they may have lapsed in food hygiene.

Food poisoning and hygiene laws

Food hygiene legislation is in place to protect the public from potential bouts of food poisoning. This means that all establishments serving food have a responsibility to identify the places where food could become contaminated and to control the hazards.

Keeping a clean establishment at all times helps and following cooking, storing and preparation guidelines can prevent the spread of food poisoning. Should you be considering claiming compensation for campylobacter poisoning, you can contact Accident Advice Helpline for advice.
