Different injury lawyers specialise in different areas of the law, such as accidents at work, which require expert knowledge of the Health and Safety laws and regulations.

    Food poisoning in Newcastle

    Approximately 12,000 people attended the Street Spice event in Times Square, Newcastle between 28th February and 2nd March 2013, and of those about 400 had food poisoning. It was one of the UK’s largest outbreaks of food poisoning and it was later found that raw curry leaves in chutney had been responsible. The investigation into the cause of the food poisoning was carried out by Newcastle City Council and Public Health England (PHE). They discovered that, apart from different strains of salmonella (including one that had not been found before in the UK), E. coli and Shigella bacteria were also present on the offending curry leaves which were in a coconut chutney.

    Many of those who contracted food poisoning after the event in Newcastle are now pursuing personal injury compensation claims as their lawyers believe that negligence can be proven to have caused the outbreak. Food poisoning is just one of the illnesses for which you could prove the negligence of another person, or persons, was to blame.
