    Compensation for wedding catering food poisoning


    Getting an invite to a friend or family member’s wedding is always exciting – you get to see two people you love get married whilst enjoying a night of drinking, dining and dancing amongst your favourite people. What could be better? The last thing you expect when going to a wedding is to come home and be struck down by food poisoning, but sadly it can happen. Wedding catering food poisoning can affect several people at a wedding or all the guests, depending on the food choices available, but hey, at least you could make a claim for personal injury compensation if you’ve been affected.

    I don’t want to annoy anyone

    There’s no need to worry about annoying your friends or family by making a personal injury claim, as it’s the catering firm who will be held liable for your food poisoning. Poor food hygiene is usually at the root of food poisoning outbreaks, and whilst you’ll experience nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea for a few days, most people recover without medical treatment and should be fine to return to work. Elderly people, children or anyone who is already unwell might need to see their GP for treatment.

    If you have eaten contaminated food at a wedding and been struck down by wedding catering food poisoning, it could take a few days for symptoms to develop, although you’ll probably hear if other people who were at the wedding have been similarly affected. Accident Advice Helpline has handled hundreds of these claims over the years and we’re so confident we can get you the compensation you deserve that we offer a 100% no win, no fee** service to all our customers.

    Will my claim be successful?

    If the catering company have been negligent when it comes to food hygiene and preparation, there’s a good chance you’ll be awarded a personal injury settlement. From storing food at the wrong temperature to using out-of-date produce or failing to cook meat properly to kill bacteria, there are any number of things that could lead to food poisoning, but you’re not to blame – they are.

    Give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 and we’ll help you get the compensation you deserve, whether it was your wedding or you were simply a guest. We’ve been helping people claim compensation since 2000 and we’re proud to be recommended by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, so you know we can be trusted to handle your claim efficiently.
