Food poisoning is very unpleasant. If you’ve suffered this after eating out, contact Accident Advice Helpline. We could help you make a food poisoning claim in Duns.
Typically at schools, kids who usually take in a packed lunch will sign up to have Christmas dinner from their school’s canteen before breaking up for the holidays, unless of course their parents have especially strong feelings about the quality of the food served. This inevitably puts an extra strain on the men and women working in school kitchens who prepare these meals. When you consider that, in some schools, a very large percentage of children bring in their own packed lunch, the extra work that will be created on this day should be clear.

Unfortunately, mistakes tend to be made when workers are put under pressure. When food is being dealt with, this can be a recipe for disaster, especially for the people consuming the food. As such, if your child comes home and falls ill with what you suspect is food poisoning after consuming a Christmas lunch at school, it could be the result of negligent behaviour. If this is the case, you might be able to launch a personal injury claim against your school with the help of Accident Advice Helpline.
An undercooked piece of poultry here, a supposedly nut-free dish coming into contact with nuts there; the list of things that can go wrong in an under pressure kitchen is almost endless. Making a mistake that results in an adult falling ill is one thing, but kids can be especially susceptible to the effects of food poisoning, on account of the fact they’re so small. A nasty dose of food poisoning can have a much worse effect on a child than it would have on an adult.
