Food poisoning can be caused by a range of bacteria including E.coli, salmonella and campylobacter. Although the time it takes for symptoms to develop can vary between types of bacteria, the symptoms are usually relatively similar. They can include vomiting, diarrhoea, nausea and stomach cramps. Some people may suffer some dehydration causing a headache and dizziness. The bacteria can cause food poisoning when food is undercooked or is not prepared in a clean environment. Food poisoning can also be caused by eating food which is not stored in appropriate conditions, food which is past its use by date or by eating food which has been prepared using utensils which have previously been used to cut raw meats.
Food poisoning can be treated at home with plenty of rest and fluids but more serious cases may need antibiotics and treatment in a hospital environment. If someone has an underlying illness, the food poisoning symptoms may be more severe. If you have eaten out in a restaurant, cafe or pub which has given you food poisoning, you may be entitled to compensation. If you are thinking of claiming compensation for pub food poisoning, you can make contact with a representative to get help.
Pub food poisoning
Eating out at pubs is a British past time and is often cheaper than dining at a restaurant. Pub grub is ideal for fussy eaters and many establishments also allow children to eat with their families. However, a family meal can be ruined if everyone goes home with food poisoning which is why you can claim compensation for your illness. If you have suffered because you were served food which was inadequate for human consumption, you may be able to win a cash payout for your suffering. Contact Accident Advice Helpline to discuss your claim.
