Expert injury lawyers in Pewsey


Looking for expert injury lawyers in Pewsey

Pewsey is a village in Wiltshire. Pewsey is popular as a location with commuters. A prominent statue of King Alfred the Great, the former Anglo-Saxon King of Wessex and a local landowner, stands in the middle of the village.

The residents of Pewsey, just like anywhere else in the UK, eat out, have takeaways and buy food from the local supermarket. Unfortunately, if food outlets do not take good care of the food they are selling, they can provide contaminated food, which could cause food poisoning. If this happens through their negligence or bad practices, they could find expert injury lawyers in Pewsey lodging a personal injury compensation claim against them.

Food poisoning may make you want to contact expert injury lawyers in Pewsey

Food poisoning does not discriminate; wherever you live, it will make you feel very ill.  It is caused by contaminated food, which ends up that way generally because of bacteria or viruses. In the right conditions, bacteria and viruses thrive. The situations you should avoid are:

  • Letting work and cooking areas get dirty;
  • Keeping cooked food at warm temperatures for a long time;
  • Not keeping food stored at the correct temperature;
  • Letting someone who is ill or has dirty hands handle the food;
  • Cross contamination of foods;
  • Letting food go past its use by date before eating it; and
  • Not cooking the food properly.

Any one of these on their own could cause food poisoning and lead to injury lawyers in Pewsey making a personal injury claim on behalf of the person who has become ill.

Foods that are more susceptible

There are some foods that are more likely to become contaminated, which include:

  • Poultry and raw meat;
  • Sausages;
  • Burgers;
  • Kebabs;
  • Raw shellfish;
  • Pate;
  • Soft cheese;
  • Unpasteurised milk;
  • Cooked sliced meat;
  • Pre-packed sandwiches;
  • Raw eggs.

The symptoms of food poisoning

Usually, you start to feel ill within one to three days after eating the contaminated food, and the symptoms you can expect include:

  • Nausea;
  • Vomiting;
  • Diarrhoea; and
  • Stomach cramps.

In healthy people, most cases of food poisoning will clear themselves within a few days, but there are some groups that could have worse effects from it, such as:

  • The very young;
  • The elderly;
  • Pregnant women; and
  • Victims with low immune systems, like HIV and cancer sufferers.

The responsible party

The injury claim would be against the outlet that supplied the food. In fairness to them all, it is not always their fault; the food could have been contaminated at their suppliers and they could be totally unaware of it. This is why food poisoning cases should be reported to the Foods Standards Agency, who will trace the contamination back to its source.
