    Injury claims solicitor in Lauder


    Struck down with poisoning? Looking for an injury claims solicitor in Lauder?

    Sadly, food poisoning has become a more common occurrence over the last twenty years or so, as our diets have moved away from cooking with fresh ingredients to eating more processed and ready made foods, or choosing to eat out for meals; if our budgets allow it.

    If you have suffered from a bout of food poisoning as a result of someone else’s fault, then you are legally entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. Finding a reputable and dependable injury claims solicitor in Lauder to guide you through the claims process is key to securing a successful personal injury claim.

    What are the symptoms of food poisoning?

    The appearance of the symptoms of food poisoning depends on the type of food poisoning contracted. In some cases, they may start as early as 1 hour after consuming tainted food and in extreme cases such as Campylobacter, they make take up to 10 days to appear. The symptoms of food poisoning include:

    • Severe nausea and vomiting
    • Diarrhoea (Blood in the stool can be an indication of food poisoning)
    • Sweating
    • Dizziness
    • Excessive salivation
    • Abdominal cramps
    • Partial loss of vision or speech
    • Dry mouth
    • Difficulty swallowing
    • Muscle paralysis

    If you suffer from any of these symptoms, after consuming what you believe to be contaminated food, then you should consult your doctor before anything else; you will be entitled to compensation.

    What are the most common causes of food poisoning?

    According to statistics published by the NHS, in the UK, campylobacter is the most common bacterial cause of food poisoning. Campylobacter bacteria are usually found on raw or undercooked meat (particularly poultry), unpasteurised milk, and untreated water. It is considered to be responsible for around 460,000 cases of food poisoning, 22,000 hospitalisations and 110 deaths each year, and most of these cases come from undercooked chicken and liver pâté.
