    Suffering an episode of food poisoning can be one of life’s more unpleasant experiences. You may be feeling embarrassed about your symptoms and may not feel like talking to anyone, but there are some organisations that you really should inform if you think that you may have food poisoning following a meal that you have eaten out. Here are some more details and guidance on how you could start a food poisoning case with an injury claim solicitor in Garnethill.

    Family doctor

    Firstly, speak to your family doctor. They will be able to give you the best possible advice about how to look after yourself whilst you are suffering from food poisoning. They will ask you to describe your symptoms and it is important not to be embarrassed about this. Your doctor needs to know the details so that they can give you the most appropriate advice and treatment. They will probably advise you to take steps to prevent yourself becoming dehydrated and this may include some oral rehydration drinks. They may also ask you for some medical samples so that they can be analysed in a microbiological laboratory and the exact cause of your food poisoning can be determined. This sort of information will be very useful if you decide to pursue a food poisoning case with an injury claim solicitor in Garnethill. Most cases of food poisoning resolve themselves within a few days or weeks, but there can be serious complications. If you feel that your condition is deteriorating, you should contact your doctor again for more advice. This is especially important for the very young, the very old and people who are already ill with other long-term conditions, such as cancer.

    Environmental health department

    Your local council will have a team of environmental health officers who investigate cases of food poisoning. They will know of any other cases of food poisoning that are related to the same restaurant that you used and may be starting to suspect an outbreak. It is a legal duty for doctors to report cases of food poisoning to the environmental health department.

    You may get a phone call or a visit from an environmental health officer, who will ask you questions about your symptoms. It is important to give them accurate information about when, where and what you ate, and exactly when the symptoms started. They will need the time as well as the day. They may need to come back and ask you more questions if an outbreak is confirmed and formally investigated. This will be useful to your case.
