    Compensation for chronic food poisoning

    Did you know that food poisoning affects up to 5.5 million people in the UK a year – that’s up to 1 in 10 of us. Many cases of food poisoning go unreported, so this figure could be even higher, and chronic food poisoning, such as salmonella or campylobacter poisoning, could have serious consequences and could even be fatal in some cases.

    Food poisoning is usually caused by poor food hygiene, and any time you are eating out, whether at a pub, restaurant, takeaway or whilst you’re on holiday, you’re putting yourself at risk. It’s a good idea to check the food hygiene rating of establishments here in the UK – so if you’re planning on going out for a meal or ordering a Friday night Chinese, you’ll be able to see just how hygienic a restaurant is, based on their last inspection.

    If chronic food poisoning has affected you, our team of expert personal injury lawyers can help you claim the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering. We’ve been helping people claim since 2000 and we specialise in personal injury law – we’ve even been recommended by our patron, TV personality Esther Rantzen.

    Symptoms of food poisoning

    Chronic food poisoning can develop anywhere from a few hours to a few days after consuming contaminated food and could leave you requiring medical treatment or being rushed to hospital. Symptoms can include:

    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhoea
    • Stomach cramps
    • Fever
    • Headaches

    Most people feel very unwell and it’s important to stay hydrated and avoid eating anything, at least for the first 24 hours. In most cases, you’ll start to feel better within 48 to 72 hours, but chronic food poisoning could cause ongoing symptoms and if you’ve been affected by salmonella poisoning, you could be left with permanent symptoms which can affect your diet and quality of life.

    Suffer in silence

    We don’t believe you should have to suffer in silence if your meal out was ruined by food poisoning or if you have been left with symptoms six months after contracting salmonella poisoning. You could claim personal injury compensation for your pain, suffering and any financial losses, such as loss of earnings. We’re here to offer confidential advice and there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim, so call our 24/7 helpline on 0800 689 0500 to speak to us about your situation and what has happened. Accident Advice Helpline’s aim is to make the claims process as simple as possible, so get in touch today.
