    Compensation for wedding party food poisoning


    There is arguably only one thing worse than food poisoning. That would be the situation where several people all got food poisoning at the same time. Worse still would be if this happened to occur at a wedding, due to the food being served being contaminated and unfit for consumption.

    Thankfully this is rare but there have unfortunately been occasions where people have suffered from a severe case of wedding party food poisoning. If the food at such an occasion is tainted with bacteria, there is a good chance lots of people will fall victim to it.

    On one occasion a wedding in Poland ended up with everyone but the bride and groom going home early because they were struck down with the stomach illness during the wedding reception. Clearly this ruined what should have been a special and memorable occasion, as several dishes there were found to have been contaminated and unfit to be eaten.

    Wedding party food poisoning tends to be quite severe when it does occur, because large numbers of people can be affected all at the same time. Needless to say the companies responsible for providing catering services for weddings and other events must be sure the food they prepare, store and serve is safe.

    How bad are the symptoms of food poisoning?

    They can be very nasty. Quite often it is a case of getting sickness and diarrhoea along with stomach cramps, although headaches can often occur as well. The severity of the symptoms may well depend on the type of bacteria that causes the condition.

    In the worst cases people who are severely weakened by serious bacteria can die, although these cases are exceptionally rare. Clearly medical attention sometimes needs to be sought depending on what is happening to the individual who is affected.
