    Babergh accident claims

    We regularly help people make Babergh accident claims

    Barbergh accident claims for food poisoning are not unusual, people often eat out or have takeaways and end up ill because of contaminated food. It does happen less often than it used to, as food outlets are much more aware of the precautions they should take. As well as protecting their customers, want to protect their reputation as well.

    It is not good for business when it becomes known that customers have made claims because of the food they have eaten. Restaurants have been known to take matters in to their own hands and close until the source of infection has been traced.

    Responsible owners take precautions

    Responsible owners will take all necessary precautions to avoid food poisoning, as at its best it will make you ill for a couple of days. At its worst it can damage your central nervous system and even cause death. Just some of the precautions they will take are:

    • Cooked food should not be left at warm temperatures for too long
    • Food that is past its use-by date should not be used
    • Food should not be handled by someone who is ill or got dirty hands
    • Cross contamination of foods where bacteria can be spread such as work surfaces and equipment should be avoided
    • Food has been cooked properly
    • Food that should be chilled is stored at temperatures under five degrees
    • Thawed frozen food that has not been used should be discarded
    • Fresh foods that are served raw should be properly cleaned

    Accident Advice Helpline help the vulnerable too

    There are some people that are much susceptible to infections – victims with low immune systems, such as:

    • HIV sufferers
    • Cancer sufferers
    • The very young
    • The elderly

    It is really important that these groups of victims do not contract food poisoning as it is far more likely to be difficult for them to recover and they are more likely to have long term effects from it.
