If there’s one thing us Brits love, it’s a good Indian curry. Some might even say that curry has become more of a national tradition than Sunday roast dinner – and for good reason. The spicy, creaminess of a chicken Tikka Masala or Korma are the perfect way to start your weekend. For most of us, a takeaway is something to be savoured and enjoyed – but what happens if you are struck down with food poisoning from an Indian takeaway?
Contracting food poisoning from an Indian takeaway – or a Chinese, Thai or any other takeaway for that matter – is actually not that uncommon. If the takeaway you order your food from doesn’t pay attention to food hygiene then food poisoning could be a real risk. Dirty work surfaces, pest infestation, out-of-date food and even lack of hand washing can all create an environment where food poisoning could thrive.
The good news is that if you’ve been a victim of food poisoning, the establishment you ordered food from could be held liable, and you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. You could receive a settlement as compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
Making a claim for food poisoning compensation
You deserve to be compensated if a dirty takeaway has given you food poisoning, so make sure you don’t sit around waiting and miss the three-year time limit to make a claim. You can contact a personal injury lawyer at any time after your accident, to find out whether you have a viable claim, and see how much you could expect to receive. If you’re worried about legal fees, choose a lawyer who works on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, as your legal fees will be deducted from your settlement, should your claim be successful.
