    Food Poisoning Guide – What is E. coli (Escherichia coli)?


    Many people assume all food poisoning is the same. However, each case can be caused by a different bacteria and one of these is known as E. coli. There are several forms of this that exist and the more harmful one is referred to officially as E. coli O157. If someone is ill with E. coli you can assume it is this type they have been struck down with.

    There are several ways you can become infected by E. coli but one of the more common is through food that has been improperly cooked. Every now and then holidaymakers come down with food poisoning that has been caused by this bacteria. While most holidays pass without incident and most restaurants and takeaways are of excellent quality, some unfortunate people do fall victim to a case of E. coli and this can be very nasty indeed. It can come on fast enough to spoil a holiday or even a shorter trip away from home.

    Do you have a case to consider for compensation after suffering food poisoning?

    If you have suffered from food poisoning within the last three year period and you know you have suffered from E. coli, you should speak to a professional injury compensation lawyer. If it can be proven that E. coli was present at a restaurant, takeaway or venue where you stayed on holiday – even just for a weekend away – you could have a case to answer for compensation. There may be evidence that other people were also struck down, which could support your case if you decide to bring one.
