    Food poisoning claims in Caerphilly


    Injury victims who have a need to launch food poisoning claims in Caerphilly should consider using the services of us here at Accident Advice Helpline. Food poisoning is something that we know quite a lot about having processed thousands of claims successfully over the past 16+ years. If your claim is legitimate, you can rely on us to help you to obtain appropriate compensationfor food poisoning claims in Caerphilly.

    What is a legitimate claim?

    A legitimate claim for personal injury that will qualify for compensation is one that must meet the following criteria:

    • The blame for the incident (in this case the food poisoning), must be attributable to a third party, and ideally that third party needs to be covered by public liability insurance.
    • The incident or injury must have taken place within the three year period immediately preceding the date that your personal injury claim is registered.
    • The nature of the injury and its severity has to be able to warrant the raising of a claim. Mild tummy pain and “dose of the trots” will not cut the mustard.
    • Medical proof that you have indeed been poisoned will need to be provided. “Here-say” is just not enough.

    Reporting incidences of food poisoning to the food health and safety authorities

    Most cases of food poisoning are relatively mild and therefore would not qualify for compensation. You should, however, reported to the food hygiene health and safety authorities so that they can take issue with the culprit, and if necessary close the establishment down until such times as any hygiene issues have been properly addressed and corrected.

    Food poisoning can sometimes prove fatal

    Occasionally, however, food poisoning can be very serious and sometimes even fatal, particularly when it involves anyone with a compromised immune system. Both of the common causes of food poisoning, i.e. E. coli (bacterial infection) and Norovirus have been known to be fatal.
