    Food poisoning injuries that need services of a lawyer

    For your holiday injury compensation claim to be successful, you must prove that someone caused the injury or illness.  When someone eats contaminated food that has not been washed thoroughly food poisoning can occur due to the bacteria, parasites and viruses in the food. The same happens when food like fresh milk or fish is not stored properly, when food is mishandled or when it is not properly cooked.

    • E-coli can occur after eating contaminated hotel food. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhoea and blood in the stool. As a result, the victim becomes weak and dehydrated because of losing body fluids. Report the illness to the hotel staff or travel agent and record it on the accident occurrence book.
    • Salmonella. Some people develop bowel problems on holiday. This can be a long-term problem.
    • Diarrhoea. The patient usually experiences diarrhoea as the body tries to get rid of the toxins. The patient loses a lot of fluids and rehydration is necessary.
    • Vomiting. The victim vomits from time to time. In minor cases the problem resolves itself but in serious cases medical attention is sought. Hospitalisation may be necessary so infusion can be given.
