Chichester in West Sussex is known for its large tourist industry. Several marinas are situated in the area together with related industries. It is the centre for culture in the region, with a Festival theatre and two art galleries. Chichester Harbour, together with the South Downs and the city walls, provide opportunities for outdoor pursuits. There are numerous areas that can be explored either on foot or by bike.
In addition to tourism, the Northshore shipyard is known for building the Southerly and Fisher motor sailing yachts. Bagged salad and prepared fruit production is also big in the region. Tourists take a lot of feeding!
Food poisoning claims in Chichester
The heavy bias towards the tourism industry means that a lot of people visit the area, and this means that food outlets are kept busy providing them with food. In most cases, the food is perfectly safe. But if hygiene procedures are not followed, it is possible that an unsuspecting customer may get food poisoning.
It is possible to make a personal injury claim for food poisoning but you need the services of an expert personal injury lawyer. Potential claimants are likely to ask some or all of the following questions, and will benefit from reading the answers before they embark on their claims proceedings.
How do I know whether I can claim?
Food poisoning claims in Chichester can be started by people who have been made ill by food poisoning when it was someone else’s fault.
You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking the unique 30-second test at Accident Advice Helpline’s website.
How long do you have to claim?
For most types of claim you have a period of three years from an accident or incident in which to begin claims proceedings and after this time has elapsed you can no longer claim. This is not the case however, with claims that deal with an industrial disease or with an injury to a minor. For disease claims, the three years run from the date that the disease was diagnosed rather than the date that the victim contracted the disease, and for minors, the three years run from the injured person’s 18th birthday.
