    Compensation for food poisoning in Enfield


    Food poisoning is no laughing matter, and up to 5.5 million people in the UK are affected by food-related illness every year – this number is probably far higher as there are thousands of cases of food poisoning in Enfield, and other parts of the country, which go unreported.

    You might be surprised to learn that food poisoning in Enfield is not uncommon – recently 46% of all food services in the borough received a ‘satisfactory’ rating or lower from the FSA. It’s a good idea to check food hygiene ratings before ordering a takeaway or dining out at a restaurant or pub, as if the establishment in question does not have good standards of food hygiene, you are at risk of being struck down by food poisoning.

    With symptoms including vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps, you may feel ill for days or even weeks after contracting food poisoning, and you’ll probably need time off work to recover, which could lead to loss of earnings.

    The good news is that if you’ve been affected by food poisoning after dining at an unhygienic establishment, you could claim personal injury compensation for your pain and suffering, provided it has been less than three years since the incident.

    How much compensation could you get?

    If you’ve been struck down by food poisoning after a dodgy dopiaza or contaminated chicken, you could receive compensation for your pain and suffering. A personal injury lawyer will be able to tell you how much compensation you could receive – settlements vary depending on the extent of your injuries and suffering, and your lawyer will also take any financial losses into account.

    For example, if you’ve been very ill and needed several months off work to recover, you could receive a substantial settlement to compensate you for loss of earnings and pain and suffering caused.
