Food poisoning is not uncommon, in fact it affects around 500,000 people a year in the UK alone. It brings with it a number of unpleasant symptoms, but the good news is that most people start to get better after a few days without medical attention. Symptoms can include tummy pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and muscle cramps, and you’re likely to feel very unwell. If you have suffered from food poisoning abdominal pain and other symptoms, you might be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation with a specialist lawyer.
That’s where Accident Advice Helpline comes in. Our team of personal injury lawyers has been helping people for over 15 years and we’re here to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
Is food poisoning abdominal pain common?
As well as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea, food poisoning abdominal pain is actually a very common symptom of food poisoning. This pain can range from mild aches and pains to severe cramps that leave you doubled over in pain, as your body fights the bacteria from the food poisoning. Whether you have eaten chicken contaminated with campylobacter or have E.coli poisoning, you’re almost certainly going to need a few days off work to recover from your illness – in some cases people need a few weeks off if they still feel unwell. The majority of those with food poisoning don’t need medical treatment, but again if symptoms persist, you may do.
Are food poisoning compensation claims successful?
There’s no way to say with 100% certainty that any personal injury claim will be successful, as this depends on the individual claim. But Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, so we’ll only take your claim on if we think there is an excellent chance of success. We have been helping people claim compensation for food poisoning since 2000, and we have been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, so you know you can trust us to handle your claim.
