Injury lawyers in Flempton
You may be looking for injury lawyers in Flempton for any of these reasons:
- You may have been injured in an accident which was not your fault within the last three years.
- Your doctor has informed you in the course of the last three years that you have an illness which can be proven to be caused by the negligence of another person.
- A spouse, partner or child has died in an accident for which they were not to blame.
- A spouse, partner or child has died because of an illness which was caused by someone else’s negligence.
Remember that although you usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, you sometimes only have two years in which to make a claim. Check this out either with a firm of injury lawyers in Flempton or elsewhere or contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Food poisoning outbreaks
If two or more people have food poisoning from eating the same product or meal, then this is known as a foodborne outbreak and the circumstances will be investigated by a Public Health and Hygiene official, in order to prevent an epidemic in the area.
Fruit and vegetables have, in the past been causes of salmonella or E.coli poisoning. In 2013 in the USA pomegranate seeds that had been imported were responsible for Hepatitis A incidences. Cucumbers from Mexico that were imported into the States were responsible for 84 cases of salmonella with 28% of those affected being admitted to hospital. In 2012 mangoes infected 127 people with salmonella across the USA.
Products can also be the cause of food poisoning, as tahini sesame paste was responsible for salmonella and the contaminated products were recalled.
In Britain in February 2013 raw curry leaves were responsible for an outbreak of food poisoning.
The point here is that those items of food which we consider to be healthy are sometimes the very ones that make us ill. You can, however claim personal injury compensation if you can prove that your case of food poisoning was the result of negligence on the part of the food producer.
