If you are looking for an accident solicitor in Bungay it could be because of food poisoning. Did you know that you can claim personal injury compensation for that? Well, you can, as long as you can prove that the illness was no fault of yours, but was caused by negligence on the part of another person.
Leafy Greens and Food Poisoning
We have always been lead to believe that leafy green vegetables, be they salad greens, or the type you have to cook (such as kale) are very good for our health. Indeed they are, being full of essential vitamins and minerals. However at the beginning of 2013 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, reported that these leafy green vegetables cause more cases of food poisoning than any other kind of food. If these vegetables are prepared and cooked properly, there should be no problems with them, of course. However if they are incorrectly prepared and cooked they may still be contaminated with the E.-coli or salmonella bacteria.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that 48 million people suffer from food poisoning annually with 128,000 of these people having to receive hospital treatment. Approximately 3,000 of these people die every year from food poisoning. In both Europe and the USA there have been recalls of E. Coli- or listeria-contaminated greens in recent years.
Personal Injury Compensation
If you have had food poisoning, it is possible to claim personal injury compensation for it. You need to have kept the receipt from the shop or restaurant where you bought the contaminated food. You should also have had medical treatment for the illness. If you can prove that you were not responsible for your illness, in other words you did not wash, otherwise prepare of cook the product containing bacteria, but that was another person’s responsibility you might have a case to make a claim against them.
