    Suffered food poisoning? Expert injury lawyers in Scone will process your personal injury compensation claim professionally and painlessly

    Food poisoning is a relatively common condition and the symptoms can be mild enough for the casualty to administer self help treatment and avoid attending the doctors.  However, food poisoning can be serious and cause widespread suffering and distress to large numbers of people which can ruin holidays and special occasions.  If you, or some one you know, have suffered the debilitating symptoms of food poisoning through no fault of your own within the last 3 years, then you are legally entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim, using injury lawyers in Scone.

    What is food poisoning?

    Food poisoning is defined as becoming ill through eating food that has become contaminated by bacteria, viruses or parasites.  The symptoms can include:

    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhoea
    • Stomach cramps
    • High temperature

    Bacterial food poisoning

    1. The most common type of bacterial food poisoning is caused by Campylobacter. This is found in raw and undercooked meat particularly poultry, unpasteurised milk and untreated water.
    2. Salmonella is another bacteria that can contaminate food causing food poisoning symptoms.  This is found in raw and undercooked poultry and raw and lightly cooked eggs.
    3. Listeria is found in ready to eat foods such as soft cheeses, butter, smoked salmon, sliced cooked meats, pate and prepacked sandwiches.

    Viral food poisoning

    The most common type of viral food poisoning is caused by Norovirus.  This virus can be passed from infected person to person and then onto food, which then becomes contaminated.  This is known as cross contamination and can be responsible for widespread food poisoning outbreaks.

    Parasitic food poisoning

    This is relatively rare and usually involves the consumption of undercooked meat or foods that have come into contact with parasites such as toxoplasmosis which can exist in infected cats and be passed to foodstuffs exposed to their faeces.  Adequate washing, preparation and cooking of foods should be strictly adhered to if you want to avoid this situation.
