No Win No Fee defective food and supplements claim Solicitors
Most of our defective food and supplements cases are conducted on a No Win No Fee basis, meaning we only take a fee if we win compensation on your behalf, therefore there is no financial risk to you.
Defective food and supplements explained
The Consumer Protection Act 1987 should guarantee you that all the food you buy is safe to eat. Whilst food poisoning might be the most popular case of defective food, other forms of defective food or supplements can cause even more serious illnesses or injuries.
Many of us use lifestyle supplements to provide our body with supplemental nutrients. These products are usually promoted in connection with a healthy, energetic lifestyle, a balanced diet, muscle building or weight loss effects. However, many products make false promises and some can even harm your health.

Can I claim on behalf of a loved one?
Losing a loved one is one of the worst things that can happen and we want you to take time to grieve. However, if this loss has left you in a difficult financial position, seeking rightful compensation may be a necessity and if the accident was caused due to someone else's action, you may want to consider claiming for compensation.
We have the understanding and the experience to handle any claim with the utmost sensitivity. If someone else's actions or negligence were even partly to blame for your loss, please get in touch with us once you feel comfortable to do so.
How much can I claim for a defective food and supplements claim?
It completely depends on your injury or illness and the impact it has on your life. If the injury was caused due to someone else's negligence, your claim for pain and suffering could be worth several thousands of pounds.
