If you live in Kilwinning and have had food poisoning after eating out, or eating a contaminated product, you may be recovering and wondering if you can make one of those food poisoning clams in Kilwinning that you have heard or read about.
Making food poisoning claims in Kilwinning
There are many food outlets and restaurants in the Kilwinning area. They usually serve excellent food, but on occasions there may be problems that are unexpected. For example, you may have eaten shellfish at a restaurant and afterwards needed medical treatment for food poisoning. You may be able to make food poisoning claims in Kilwinning such circumstances against the owner of the establishment.
Perhaps you bought a food product that had become contaminated because it had not been stored appropriately. In such a case, as long as you had kept the wrapping it came in, and the receipt, you may be able to make a claim against the shop or supermarket owner.
In order to make claims for food poisoning claims, you have to prove that your illness was the result of negligence of staff at the restaurant or shop.
You also need to show that you had medical treatment for your illness. This can be done on production of your medical records and a doctor’s report.
Holiday food poisoning
It is, unfortunately, quite common for British holidaymakers to have food poisoning while on holiday. If you contracted food poisoning while on holiday abroad and had booked your holiday with a UK tour operator, you may be able to claim compensation from the company on your return to Britain.
Food often becomes contaminated quickly in hot climates and in some countries the Health and Safety rules regarding food are not strictly followed as they usually are in the UK.
