Compensation information in Torridge
As you may be aware, whenever you eat in a public place, the owners and the staff employed by that place have a legal obligation to safeguard you. This means that they must, under both health and safety and food safety regulations, take all reasonable care to ensure the safety and hygiene of their food.
Should they fail to do this, a member of the public could become seriously ill and if this is the case, that person would have the right to approach no win no fee solicitors to seek compensation on their behalf. Read on for more compensation information in Torridge.
The various legislation regarding food safety, as well as the right of any person who becomes ill as the result of sub-standard food and can contact no win no fee solicitors, apply whatever the nature of the food provider.
Every person or business which prepares or retails food or beverage products has the same obligations and is subject to the same regulations. In short, they must ensure that all food is prepared, stored and displayed (where applicable) in a way which ensures safety at all times. For example, it is a well known fact that food bacteria can develop and multiply at certain temperatures. For this reason, all food in professional kitchen areas must be kept either below or above these temperatures to prevent this bacteria from growing.
In the event of the failure of the organisation or business in doing so, a member of the public could become dangerously ill with food poisoning and in this case would have the right to make a claim for compensation through no win no fee Torridge solicitors who would seek to prove that the organisation in question had breached their duty of care in relation to their customers’ health.
The food on aeroplanes is subject to exactly the same laws and restrictions as any other food preparation area down on the ground and if a passenger became ill as the result of negligence on the part of the airline or their staff, that passenger could contact no win no fee Torridge solicitors to seek compensation for them.
Because most airline meals are prepared on the ground, and then kept warm throughout the flight or heated during it, it is even more essential that the food safety regulations are carried out expertly. Despite aeroplane food having a particularly bad reputation for taste and quality, poor hygiene is another matter entirely.
