    Food poisoning claim in Duns

    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.

    Food poisoning claim in Duns

    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.

    If your child does fall ill after consuming a dodgy Christmas lunch, or any other meal for that matter, while at school, you will be well within your rights to look into using the services of an injury solicitors Duns solicitor and suing for compensation. In fact, it will be your duty as parent. Your child won’t be able to take legal action until she is 18, by which time the school may have closed or the incident may have been forgotten. Don’t let this go, If your child has been hurt as the result of your school’s cooking staff’s incompetence, why should she not be compensated for her suffering?
