    Compensation for greasy spoon food poisoning


    The great British greasy spoon café is practically an institution and there’s nothing better to cure a hangover than a fried breakfast or a bacon butty. Whilst most greasy spoon cafés across the UK adhere to strict food hygiene standards, there will always be those cafés who are negligent when it comes to food hygiene, which could mean you end up with greasy spoon food poisoning after your meal.

    If greasy spoon food poisoning has affected you, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to claim personal injury compensation. We specialise in personal injury law and we don’t believe a fried breakfast should come with a side order of food poisoning – just ketchup suits us fine, thanks. Since 2000, we’ve helped our customers claim compensation for food poisoning and because our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, there are no upfront legal fees to worry about.

    Call today – don’t delay

    There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim, so if you have been affected by food poisoning after a meal out, don’t wait too long to get in touch. Whether your bacon butty has left you confined to bed or your sausage and eggs have meant a week off work to recover, we’re here to help. Food poisoning usually resolves itself within a few days, but there is the risk of ongoing symptoms and some people still experience bouts of nausea and gastro-intestinal discomfort months or even years later.

    If your local greasy spoon’s poor attitude towards food hygiene has left you suffering, you could report them to your local council’s environmental health department – they may carry out an investigation. Then get in touch with us and we’ll tell you if you have a viable claim.

    What’s caused your food poisoning?

    Eggs can cause food poisoning if they are out of date or not cooked properly, whilst meat such as sausages, bacon and black pudding could be the culprit if they are not cooked through or haven’t been stored correctly. It could even be a dirty food preparation area in the café’s kitchen that is at fault, or perhaps staff haven’t washed their hands after using the bathroom. Whatever has caused your food poisoning, you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and get confidential, no-obligation advice from our advisors – it’s free to call.
