Food poisoning can be a miserable and distressing condition that often occurs when we least expect it. Family occasions and important events can be ruined by an outbreak of food poisoning that can rapidly infect a large number of people.
Many people who sustain food poisoning symptoms fail to report the condition to the relevant authorities and suffer in silence, hoping that the illness will be short lived. However, this condition can cause complications which may mean that you are left unable to work, causing financial strain and stress.
If you have experienced food poisoning through no fault of your own within the last 3 years, then you may be legally entitled to make a food poisoning claim in Lampeter, or anywhere else, using the helpful team of dedicated solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline.
How is food poisoning caused?
Food poisoning is usually transmitted through the consumption of contaminated food or drinks. The pathogens in food can be bacterial, viral or even parasitic in origin. Once ingested into the body, they can colonise in the gut and cause distressing symptoms.
What are the symptoms of food poisoning?
Food poisoning symptoms usually become apparent within 6-24 hours following the consumption of contaminated foods and may include:
- stomach cramps
How is this condition usually treated?
Following a physical examination by a medical practitioner, the condition is usually treated with:
- rest in bed
- drinking small amounts of clear fluids regularly
- only eating easily digestible foods when symptoms allow
- avoiding contact with others for 48 hours after symptoms appear
- seek medical attention if symptoms persist for 48 hours or longer
- taking oral rehydration salts to replace those lost through vomiting and diarrhoea to prevent dehydration
