Food poisoning can occur from harmful bacteria or from a virus, such as norovirus, contaminating your food. If you have suffered norovirus or food poisoning from someone else you could be entitled to compensation. Food poisoning can be unpleasant and ruin plans. If you’re not to blame for getting ill, let us help you get the justice you deserve.
Bad restaurants and fast food services
Many of us find out too late where we got our food poisoning from. It can be hard to tell at the time when we are ordering food and then consuming it. Food poisoning symptoms can develop a long time after a contaminated dish is eaten.
A restaurant or fast food service may have been responsible for your illness and you may be left wondering whether you should have known. It can be difficult to assess the food quality of a food establishment. Things to look out for can include hygiene ratings (though if the hygiene rating is bad they may not advertise this, though you could find out online), the cleanliness of the surroundings which may indicate what the kitchen looks like, and you may be able to find reviews online or from others you know who have eaten there.
If you want the restaurant or fast food establishment to be responsible for yours and other customer’s safety you could make a claim for compensation against them. They should be covered by accident claim insurance and it may be the wakeup call they need to start taking customer health and safety more seriously.
