    Avoiding an allergic reaction in a restaurant – injury lawyer Market Bosworth

    If you have told a restaurant that you have an allergy to something and you are then served that ingredient in your food, you may be able to claim compensation from the restaurant using an injury lawyer in Market Bosworth. A restaurant is likely to pay out on a compensation claim of this type because it was their negligence which made you unwell and if you have a severe allergy they could have endangered your life. The restaurant will not want to risk being shut down and should respond well to a claim for compensation.

    Choose the right restaurant

    Obviously, if you are allergic to shellfish then you will not go to a shellfish restaurant. You are looking for a restaurant which will be able to accommodate your allergy and make sure that nothing you are allergic to has touched or been close to the food you are being served. Avoid anything which has a menu heavy on the ingredient you can’t have. It can also be helpful to choose a restaurant which has a large and varied menu, as you are more likely to find choices you can eat there.

    Let your waiter know your allergies

    One of the first things you mention to your waiter should be your allergy. This will help them to avoid bringing out anything which you may have a reaction to and also gives them time to go into the kitchen and find out what is available for you before you order. There may be a special menu or better choices for you, so let your waiter know your needs straight away and then let them help you.

    Steer clear of those who have ordered what you are allergic to

    If other people at your table are ordering something you are allergic to, don’t feel embarrassed about asking to be moved away from them, or asking them to order something else. Depending on how severe your allergy is, it may be life-threatening for you to be too close to their food, so make sure that everyone you are eating with knows what your allergy is and how they can avoid triggering it.

    Don’t forget your medicine

    Just in case something goes wrong, make sure that whenever you go out to eat you have the treatment for your allergy to hand. If you feel the symptoms of your allergy coming on, then stop eating and use your treatment right away.
