    Warning! Product contains nuts!


    Warning! Product contains nuts!

    Consuming nuts can have serious health implications for those who suffer from a nut allergy. As with slips, trips and falls, if you are in a public establishment and experience an allergic reaction due to the fault of the owner of the premises, you may be able to claim compensation for the harm you have sustained.

    Danger-free dining: the legalities

    When a restaurant, café or other eatery welcomes you into their establishment, they have a legal responsibility to ensure your health and safety during your visit. It is a legal requirement that companies notify customers of products which contain nuts or traces or nuts, for the convenience and safety of nut allergy sufferers.

    When a member of the general public consumes or comes into contact with nuts without warning and this triggers a health issue, it is likely that this customer has a case for personal injury compensation.

    Your claim for a nut allergy: the eligibility checklist

    Not all claims for public incidents are eligible for a compensation claim. To ensure that your case is eligible, you must be able to provide:

    • Confirmation that the reaction was at no fault of your own; and
    • Proof that the incident occurred within the last three years.

    It is also helpful if you can gather supporting evidence, such as a copy of the menu and details of any medical attention and/or treatment that you have received.
