    Compensation for food poisoning in Ealing

    With Ealing home to one of the highest numbers of food establishments in London – over 3,200 establishments – there are undoubtedly going to be pubs, restaurants, takeaways and cafés which fail to meet food hygiene standards.

    The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommend that you check the food hygiene rating of an establishment before eating there or ordering food. Food hygiene ratings are awarded after an inspection and a business can receive from 1 star to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. If you dine at a restaurant or pub and are struck down by food poisoning in Ealing, poor food hygiene could be the culprit.

    So what can you do if you’re affected by food poisoning in Ealing after a romantic meal out or cosy takeaway at home? First, you should contact the establishment in question, to let them know what’s happened. It’s also a good idea to get in touch with your local council if you’re concerned about food hygiene. Their environmental health department will usually investigate. You may be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation, so get in touch with a personal injury lawyer to find out.

    Are you eligible to make a claim?

    It’s hard to say as everyone’s circumstances are different, but a professional personal injury lawyer will be able to tell you whether you have a viable claim. If you’ve been struck down by food poisoning after eating out, the establishment you ate at could be held liable. Poor food hygiene standards such as a dirty kitchen, failing to cook or store food properly or even a pest infestation could all lead to food poisoning and illness, and you could find yourself feeling very ill. It’s a good idea to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as you start to feel better, to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim for compensation.
