    Food poisoning claims in Driffield

    It’s easy to not see food poisoning as an accident or injury – we usually think of road traffic accidents or injuries such as whiplash when we consider personal injuries. However, if you contracted food poisoning from a restaurant, takeaway or other food producers, you have sustained an injury.

    Food poisoning usually occurs due to improper food handling. This is usually in the kitchen of a restaurant or a factory line producing convenience foods such a sandwiches. Symptoms usually arise within a few hours of eating the food, although they can sometimes take a few days to appear. These symptoms include:

    • A high temperature
    • Chills
    • Nausea & vomiting
    • Stomach cramps
    • Diarrhoea
    • Muscle spasms
    • And loss of appetite.

    The awkward and sometimes embarrassing nature of the symptoms can put people off making food poisoning claims in Driffield. However, food poisoning can be nasty, sometimes resulting in a long period of recovery. You might have had to take time off work to recover, for instance.

    Why make a claim for compensation?

    Compensation can help you to recover some or all of the costs you’ve incurred as a result of contracting food poisoning. This could include loss of earnings if you took time off work and were on a reduced salary or statutory sick pay.
