    Best solicitors in Broadstairs


    Broadstairs, on the Isle of Thanet, Kent, began as a fishing village in the 14th century, and this became known as Broadstairs because stairs were carved into the cliffs to give access to the Shrine of Our Lady which was located in the bay.

    There are a number of events and festivals held there throughout the year. The Broadstairs Food Festival, for example, held over the Easter weekend in 2014, attracted a record number of visitors on Easter Saturday, 9,000 people went to enjoy the food which was for sale at more than 50 stalls.

    Food poisoning and best solicitors Broadstairs

    If you develop food poisoning after having a meal out, or after eating a contaminated product, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation if you and your solicitors in Broadstairs, for example, can prove it was caused by the negligence of catering staff. In 2013, people attending the Street Spice Festival in Newcastle had to be treated for food poisoning.

    The Food Standards Agency investigates outbreaks of food poisoning and should be informed of any cases. The best Solicitors in Broadstairs or elsewhere, can help you build a case to prove that your illness was caused by another person’s negligence.

    Food poisoning is caused by bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella, which is usually destroyed when food is cooked at the right temperatures. However, sometimes these bacteria lurk in vegetables which should be thoroughly cleaned.

    The Food Standards Agency

    The Food Standards Agency is responsible for the hygiene ratings you can see in the windows and on doors of restaurants in the UK, with 5 stars being the best. Not only do they have inspectors who check that kitchens are up to the required standards, but they also issue bulletins, informing the public of foodstuffs that have been recalled by manufacturers or large supermarket chains. In the first four months of 2014, the FSA issued six food alerts.
