    Making an injury claim in St Ouen


    Eating contaminated food can causes food poisoning. Food is usually contaminated by bacteria, but can also be contaminated by a virus such as the Norovirus. If this is the case through no fault of your own within the last 3 years and you sought medical attention, then consider making an injury claim in St Ouen with Accident Advice Helpline.

    Food poisoning and making an injury claim in St Ouen

    You will know you have food poisoning because you will be:

    • Feeling sick
    • Vomiting
    • Have diarrhoea
    • Have stomach cramps

    These symptoms will start no later than 3 days after eating the bad food and should clear up by themselves within 3 or 4 days, if they do not you should seek medical treatment.  The other problem with food poisoning is dehydration and you should make sure you rest and drink plenty of water to avoid this.

    How you will know you are dehydrated

    Dehydration can happen in more serious cases of food poisoning and there are some groups of people it is more likely to happen to such as:

    • The very young
    • The elderly
    • People with low immune systems such as sufferers of HIV or cancer

    The signs of dehydration are sunken eyes and passing small amounts of dark coloured and smelly urine and if this is happening, you may need to consider making an injury claim in St Ouen.
