    Injury claim in St Martins


    Who can help me with my injury claim in St Martins for food poisoning?

    If you have eaten out at a restaurant, had a takeaway from the local chinese or chippie and the meal has made you ill, you may have food poisoning and need to make an injury claim in St Martins.

    Ready meals and pre packed sandwiches are amongst the foods that are more susceptible to having bacteria that cause food poisoning.  If you buy any of these from a supermarket and become ill, you may be able to make an injury claim in St Martins.

    What are the causes of food poisoning?

    Food poisoning is caused usually by bacteria infesting the food.  Once they have a hold, they spread really quickly but are not visible to the human eye.

    Some foods are particularly susceptible to bacteria and extra care should be taken when preparing, handling or storing them.  They are:

    • Burgers
    • Sausages
    • Kebabs
    • Poultry
    • Pork
    • Raw meat
    • Cooked sliced meats
    • Pate
    • Soft cheese
    • Pre packed sandwiches
    • Raw eggs
    • Raw shellfish
    • Unpasteurised milk

    Most cases of food poisoning will clear up in 3 or 4 days, but it can be much more severe than this. It may need medical attention and can cause long term problems. Some victims end up in hospital because of it.

    Food poisoning and dehydration for your injury claim in St Martins

    One of the bad effects of food poisoning is dehydration.  The very young, the elderly and people with conditions that lower their immune system such as HIV or cancer are particularly susceptible to dehydration.  The signs are sunken eyes and passing small amounts of dark smelling urine.  If this happens, you should seek immediate medical attention.

    You should report your case of food poisoning to The Food Standards Agency for them to trace the source of contamination and put a stop to it.
