    If you have just contacted Accident Advice Helpline about your food poisoning case, then you have probably eaten a meal out that you suspect has made you ill. We are the experts in personal injury claims and have vast experience in helping people to get a fair level of compensation in food poisoning cases. Our personal injury lawyers will negotiate hard on your behalf and get you the compensation that you deserve. After all, food poisoning is no laughing matter – it makes you feel extremely ill for quite some time.

    Here are some of the ways in which a dose of food poisoning could affect you in your normal everyday life and ultimately end up as a food poisoning claim with an injury claim solicitor in Garve from Accident Advice Helpline.

    The effects of food poisoning

    The first obvious effect is that you feel ill. Diarrhoea and vomiting are extremely unpleasant symptoms and can be very severe in some cases. You might not be able to eat, sleep or leave the house for several days. The abdominal cramps can be excruciatingly painful. The food poisoning bacteria is irritating the lining of your stomach and intestines, and your body has a violent reaction to this. You will certainly have to take some time off work, and if you care for young children or are a carer for a sick or elderly relative then you will probably have to buy in help with this as well.

    Some food poisoning episodes get better in a few days – these tend to be the viral food poisoning organisms. However, the bacterial and parasitic food poisoning cases can go on for days and even weeks. You can become very debilitated over this time. It is not surprising that people start to think about starting a food poisoning case with an injury claim solicitor in Garve to get some compensation for the suffering they have had to put up with.

    Food poisoning is generally regarded as a mild disease and in general this is true, but there are two stages of the disease that can be more serious. These are the stages that can cause more serious illness and may result in a higher injury food poisoning settlement.

    The first stage is the acute stage, when diarrhoea and vomiting are most severe. Some people become so severely dehydrated at this stage that they end up on a drip in hospital. Young children and babies are very vulnerable at this stage and must be monitored closely. Always get advice from you doctor about how to treat and monitor food poisoning. The elderly and people who are chronically ill or on certain medications that affect their immune system can also become very ill very quickly and may need urgent medical attention.

    The second stage at which things can become more serious is a little later. Some food poisoning organisms can spread to other parts of the body, such as the blood or kidneys, where they cause serious symptoms.
