    Using expert injury lawyers in Cowes to help with a food poisoning claim

    Usually when we think of injury lawyers, we assume that they can only help with road traffic accidents and slips, trips and falls, but that is not the case at all! If you have ever eaten out and been the victim of food poisoning, then you may well be entitled to make a claim. Even if we don’t think of it in that way, food poisoning is a type of injury, and if we have fallen victim to this then someone needs to be made accountable.

    How do I know if I have food poisoning?

    Symptoms of food poisoning include:

    • Nausea;
    • Diarrhoea;
    • Stomach cramps;
    • Vomiting;
    • High temperature; and
    • Feeling sick.

    What causes food poisoning?

    Bacteria causes food poisoning by contaminating the food you eat. Different bacterias include Campylobacter, Salmonella and Listeria. These can be caused by either cross contamination, storing food incorrectly or food not being cooked enough. If you have been poisoned by any of these, then you’ll probably feel ill for a couple of days, and it is this illness that you could be entitled to make a claim for.

    Making a claim

    If you believe you have been a victim of food poisoning, then it could be worth contacting expert injury lawyers in Cowes to see if you are able to make a claim. Generally if you have been ill within the past three years, then you will be entitled to make a claim. However, you should bear in mind that often you have to provide evidence to back up your claim.
