Injury lawyers in Trondra

Trondra is one of the Scalloway Islands, in Scotland. There are many fields of sheep and a few of Shetland ponies throughout the island. There is a variety of other wildlife present on and around the isle, such as hedgehogs, sparrows, starlings, seals and porpoises.

Hopefully none of the wildlife will eat any bad berries that upset their stomachs and give them food poisoning. Let’s hope none of the residents of Scotland or anywhere else in the UK eat any bad food either.  Food poisoning can make you feel really ill, and you may then want to use injury lawyers in Trondra to make a personal injury claim.

How injury lawyers in Trondra say you will know you have food poisoning

You will be aware you have food poisoning because usually within a few hours of eating the bad food you will be:

  • Feeling sick
  • Vomiting
  • Have diarrhoea
  • Have stomach cramps

The symptoms can take up to 3 days to start and should clear up by themselves within 3 or 4 days, if they do not you should seek medical treatment.  There are other problems with food poisoning such as dehydration and you should make sure you rest and drink plenty of water to avoid this.

The signs of dehydration

Dehydration can happen in more serious cases of food poisoning, and there are some groups of people it is more likely to happen to such as:

  • The very young
  • The elderly
  • People with low immune systems such as sufferers of HIV or cancer

The signs of dehydration are sunken eyes and passing small amounts of dark coloured and smelly urine and if this is happening, you may need to make an injury claim. In extreme cases of food poisoning the central nervous system can be damaged and even death occur.

Injury lawyers in Trondra warn about the foods that need extra care

Any food can become contaminated but it is more likely to happen with:

  • Cooked sliced meats
  • Raw eggs
  • Pate
  • Soft cheeses
  • Pre packed sandwiches
  • Unpasteurized milk
  • Poultry
  • Pork
  • Sausages
  • Kebabs
  • Burgers
  • Shellfish
