    Find an expert solicitor in Farnham through Accident Advice Helpline

    An expert solicitor in Farnham can help you with a compensation claim if you have been made ill by a bacteria called E.coil O157 and were infected through no fault of your own. You will be able to claim compensation for the illness itself and for the money that you have lost because you were ill and if you call Accident Advice Helpline you can find out more about this.

    Claiming compensation for E.coli O157 illness

    E.coli O157 is a bacteria that occurs naturally in the guts (intestines) of cows but is found in the guts of many other animals as well including infected humans. It does not make the cow ill at all – they do not know that they have got it. Therefore you have to assume that all cows are infected and adopt strict hygiene measures when the public and employees are around them.

    An expert solicitor in Farnham would become involved when a member of the public or a worker is made ill by coming into contact with an infected cow (or other animal) or from food or drink that has become contaminated. The personal injury solicitor in Farnham would help you to prove that someone was at fault for your illness and if this is successful they would negotiate a sum in compensation.

    The illness that is caused by E.coliO157 is called haemorrhagic colitis. Sufferers get severe abdominal pain and diarrhoea (with blood in it) and can be very unwell for some time. There are even more severe health problems that can develop at the same time or just after and haemolytic uraemic syndrome is one of these. It is a type of kidney failure that can leave the sufferer with permanent kidney damage. A personal injury solicitor in Farnham would negotiate a sum of money as compensation for this

    Claiming money for out of pocket expenses

    This whole unpleasant experience is likely to leave you out of pocket. It is likely that you will have to take a considerable time off work and if you are left with permanent health issues you may not be able to work in the future. You will also probably have to pay out on travelling expenses to and from the hospital. You may need to buy in childcare support or household support as you are recovering and some people even have to purchase personal care at this very difficult time. Your Accident Advice Helpline personal injury solicitor will be able to negotiate a sum in compensation for these out of pocket expenses so that you do not have to deal with financial stress as well as the outcome of your illness.
