Has food poisoning caused you to become ill or suffer a Harlow accident?
When people suffer a Harlow accident, they often associate it with physical injuries, as opposed to illness. However, if you were to contract an illness because of someone or something else, it could be treated in the same way as a Harlow accident from a legal point of view.
If for example, someone or something else causes a Harlow accident and you suffer a physical injury, you could make a compensation claim against them. If they were to cause you to become unwell, rather than suffer a physical injury, you could still make a claim against them and you could still potentially obtain compensation as a result.
Due to the strict health and safety regulations governing the food industry in the United Kingdom, most of the food we buy is perfectly safe to eat. However, if supermarkets or shops fail to store the food correctly, it is possible that it could become harmful and cause an illness or a Harlow accident.
When supermarkets transport food, they generally do so in refrigerated vans so that food stays fresh. If a van was to malfunction or the temperature was set too high, the food could begin to rot or go off.
If the food was then sold to a customer and consumed, it could make them very ill and it could even cause a bout of food poisoning. Often, supermarkets may face similar complaints from numerous customers in relation to one product so it can be relatively easy to identify when inadequate or dangerous food has been sold.
In such cases, it’s possible that you could obtain compensation for your Harlow accident, with help from a personal injury law firm or a solicitor. If you’ve become ill or you’ve had to obtain medical treatment after eating food purchased at a supermarket or an independent shop, why not contact us to find out if we can help you to obtain compensation?
