    No matter where you purchase food, be it from your local corner shop or supermarket, a greasy spoon or Michelin-starred restaurant, you have the legal right to expect that whatever you purchase will be safe to consume and will not make you ill. This means that if you contract food poisoning after consuming food that was not prepared properly, past its use-by date or not stored correctly, you may be able to use injury compensation lawyers in Tenby to take legal action against the business that sold you the offending grub.

    Food poisoning and injury lawyers

    If possible, holding onto a sample of the food that you suspect made you ill could greatly increase the chances any injury lawyers would have of winning compensation for you. As the symptoms of food poisoning typically come on some hours after the offending meal has been consumed, this may well be tough if you ate out at a restaurant, unless you get in the habit of retaining part of your meal every time you eat out. But if you have anything left over from a meal you ate at home, your solicitor might be able to get this tested to establish what type of bacteria it was infected with.

    At the very least, you’re going to need proof from your doctor that you suffered the food poisoning you claim to have contracted. As such, it will be important that you get yourself along to a doctor while you’re ill. It will be no good seeing a medical professional once you’re better, as they will not be able to confirm that you have food poisoning.

    Seek medical attention

    Apart from seeing a medical professional after coming down with food poisoning to get evidence for your injury lawyer, you should also seek attention to make sure that you haven’t contracted something that could lead to complications. Some forms of food poisoning can lead to nerve damage or even death, particularly among those with serious pre-existing conditions, the very young or the elderly, so it’s important to get help.

    If you have a good case for compensation after suffering a bout of food poisoning, you should pick up the phone and call Accident Advice Helpline on one of the numbers at the very top of this web page. You’ll get to talk to one of the firm’s friendly and professional claims advisors, who will be able to advice as to whether you might have a case.
