Think of food poisoning and most of us think of chicken, fish or other meat, even products like eggs. Not many of us would consider being struck down with food poisoning after enjoying ice cream. But because ice cream is made with dairy products and frozen, there is the risk of food poisoning. If you have suffered food poisoning from ice cream then you may be able to make a claim for compensation – and Accident Advice Helpline could help you.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps are unpleasant symptoms to have to deal with and if somebody else’s negligence caused your food poisoning then we are here to make sure you are compensated.
How does food poisoning from ice cream occur?
Food poisoning from ice cream could occur for a number of different reasons – here are a few examples:
- Ice cream has been thawed and refrozen, which could lead to the development of bacteria
- Ice cream has not been properly stored at the correct temperature
- Ice cream has been made with dairy products which were past their use-by date or not fresh
- Ice cream has been contaminated with other raw food or through lack of hand washing in a kitchen
If you have suffered food poisoning after eating ice cream in a restaurant or café, or even ice cream bought in a tub from your local supermarket, it’s important to report it, as this could help to prevent anybody else from becoming ill. You can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you could make a 100% no-win, no-fee claim for compensation after your food poisoning experience. We’ll gather evidence in support of your claim and help you get the compensation you’re entitled to.
How much compensation could I get?
If you’ve suffered food poisoning you’re unlikely to receive as much compensation as somebody who has suffered a life-changing injury, but it is always worth making a claim for compensation, as you could be compensated for your loss of earnings. Take the 30-second test on our own website and you’ll get an idea of how much you could be entitled to, then call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) and we’ll be able to give you some more advice. This is an opportunity to ask any questions you have about making a claim too.
