    Guidance on how to cope if you are struck down by food poisoning

    Food poisoning can be caused by under-cooking food or by cross-contamination of raw and cooked meat. Whether resulting in a mild upset stomach or an extended visit to hospital, food poisoning is a serious issue that can cause severe illness to unsuspecting consumers.

    Top food poisoning compensation provider: Accident Advice Helpline, has issued some helpful advice on what to do if you are unlucky enough to fall prey to food poisoning.

    Tips to help recovery that were identified by the company include:

    • Drinking plenty of fluids, preferably water, to stay hydrated – dehydration is a significant danger in cases of food poisoning and could require a stay in hospital if severe
    • Getting plenty of rest – sickness and diarrhea leaves you feeling exhausted so make sure you stay at home and rest for a few days
    • Avoiding solid foods for a while – allow your stomach to recover and start to reintroduce solid foods slowly
    • If symptoms persist for more than a few days, or are severe, consulting your doctor is the best way forward

    Food poisoning compensation

    The company deal with many food poisoning compensation claims every year by people who have suffered food poisoning through no fault of their own. A representative from the company said,

    “Food poisoning is common, particularly at seasonal events such as Christmas or Easter lunches, when people are more likely to eat out. Symptoms can be very distressing and should be taken seriously in all cases.”
