    Compensation for Harley Street food poisoning


    Compensation for Harley Street food poisoning

    Harley Street in London is where some of the UK’s most exclusive private hospitals and clinics are located. It’s a prestigious address, that much is certain, but just how high are the standards of care these private hospitals offer? Many people prefer to be treated in a private hospital, as they believe that the care they receive will be of a higher standard than in an NHS-funded hospital; this is usually true, as there are fewer patients and a higher ratio of staff members to patients than in busier hospitals. However, mistakes have the potential to happen at any hospital, and if you’ve been affected by Harley street food poisoning whilst spending time in one of these hospitals then you may be left suffering.

    Food poisoning isn’t always serious – for many people, a bout of food poisoning is unpleasant and is over in just a few days. Of course you have the nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps to suffer in the meantime, but the majority of us will get better without the need for medical treatment. However, if you’re elderly or already ill and in hospital, your body could be weaker as you recover from another illness, and food poisoning could have serious consequences.

    Claiming for food poisoning

    You may even become seriously ill or go on to suffer life-long symptoms from your Harley Street food poisoning, and if that’s the case then Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim compensation for your pain and suffering. In fact, however you have been affected by food poisoning, a poor attitude towards food hygiene on the part of the private hospital in question is to blame, and why should you suffer if somebody else is to blame? You could find out how much compensation you’re entitled to by heading for Accident Advice Helpline’s website and taking our 30-second test right now.

    A serious problem

    There are over half a million reported cases of food poisoning in the UK every year, so if you’ve been affected then you’re not alone. Claiming compensation for your food poisoning doesn’t have to be difficult, and with over 15 years’ experience helping people to claim, you know you can trust Accident Advice Helpline.
