If you suffer a bout of food poisoning that did not come about as a result of your actions, it can be pretty tough to establish the cause if you’re thinking of taking some form of East Hampshire car accident action over it, even if you’re fairly confident that you know exactly where the offending food came from. If you ever find yourself in this predicament, you would be well advised to follow the tips laid out below if you want to maximise your chances of winning a compensation pay-out and the amount of money you are awarded.
Food poisoning and East Hampshire car accident solicitors
As soon as you come down with a dose of food poisoning, seek medical attention, no matter how ropey you feel. If you have plans to take some form of East Hampshire car accident action against the individual or organisation that sold or gave you the food that made you ill, you’re going to need official medical proof that you did indeed suffer the illness you claim to have. It will also be wise to get the once over to make sure you’re not in a worse condition than you think. In rare cases, food poisoning can cause blindness or heart problems.
You’ll also need to take steps to establish that a third party was responsible for your illness. For a start, you’ll need proof of purchase from the vendor that sold you the food. Your case will be helped immensely if other people you were dining with who ate the same food as you came down with the same thing. If you can prove this, the party you take action against will have little option but to settle with you.
If you’ve been made very ill, don’t be tempted to complain directly to the food service business that you suspect made you poorly if you have plans to take East Hampshire car accident action. Certainly don’t accept anything that could be construed as compensation for your suffering in any way, shape or form. You’ll be best off putting the matter in the hands of a top 100% no win no fee* personal injury solicitor.
