    Food poisoning in Bassenthwaite

    If you’ve suffered a case of food poisoning in Bassenthwaite and you are trying to establish what your best options are with regard to claiming personal injury compensation, you can get top personal injury advice from Accident Advice Helpline.

    Many people simply don’t associate personal injury compensation when it comes down to food poisoning. However, the fact of the matter is that if you’ve been made ill, you could very well be entitled to launch a claim seeking compensation for your food poisoning in Bassenthwaite.

    The severity of the events of food poisoning in Bassenthwaite

    The majority of food poisoning events,whether we are talking about food poisoning in Bassenthwaite or anywhere else here in the UK are normally quite minor affairs that simply caused a mild stomach upset, which normally heals itself within 24/48.

    However, it really all depends on the type and the cause of the food poisoning episode we are talking about. Another thing that has to be taken into consideration will be those who have compromised immune systems. This is because these people’s immune systems are not fully functioning, a food poisoning episode can be a serious event, and in some instances may even prove fatal.

    Many of the food poisoning events that take place are caused through food that has become contaminated with bacteria. The types of bacteria we’re talking about here are E.coli, or other viruses such as the Norovirus. The symptoms of bacterial food poisoning usually present themselves anywhere from a few hours after eating the contaminated food, to up to about two days after the event. The usual symptoms include diarrhoea, nausea, stomach cramps, and vomiting
