In the midst of North Lanarkshire, the town of Wishaw can be found, with its modest population of 28,565 people. The region is estimated to be around forty four miles from the popular city of Edinburgh, and around three hundred and eighty nine miles from London. It is known that during the year 1996, in the month of November, one of the worst ever cases of E.Coli was recorded in the area, as 21 people were known to have died and 200 were infected.
The danger of food poisoning
E.Coli is a form of food poisoning. It can often happen as a result of not handling food properly, or doing things that produce poor hygiene, when it comes to food and its consumption. In addition to this, failure to properly cook food, can also result in E.Coli. With some people, there might be an E.Coli infection, caused due to no fault of their own.
This might happen with the consumption of food from a restaurant, or from any other kind of food outlet. Food poisoning is generally not treatable with any kind of medication, and the main suggestion for those afflicted by food poisoning, is to ensure that they’re consuming enough fluids, to replace any that might have been lost as a result of the food poisoning infection. As mentioned, food poisoning might happen, due to the fault of another person, and you might therefore want to make a claim for compensation as a result.
This is possible, through the assistance of a professional law firm. When making a claim for compensation, you may want to keep a record of the place at which the food was bought, and what happened to you as a result. To claim for compensation, you might want to speak to us at Accident Advice Helpline.
