Injury lawyers in Wetherby
If you go for a meal at an eatery, whether it’s Scott’s in Mayfair or the local kebab shop down the road, the least you should be able to expect is to not be given an unpleasant dose of food poisoning. A ropey meal, maybe, but something would be very wrong if you had to spend the rest of the evening and the small hours of the morning after your meal in the bathroom with action at both ends, to use a footballing analogy.
Unfortunately though, not all restaurant owners and their staff are as strict on food hygiene as they perhaps should be. All it takes is a missed use by date here or a badly stored perishable item there to have you sitting on the loo all night. If you’ve been made ill by a dodgy meal at a restaurant you visited, you may be able to get recompense for the suffering you had to endure as a consequence. If you can prove that your illness was caused as a direct result of a meal you consumed at a restaurant, you may be able to use the services of a first-rate injury lawyer in Wetherby to launch a personal injury claim and win compensation.
Cases of food poisoning and injury lawyers in Wetherby
Winning a personal injury case after suffering a bout of food poisoning won’t be as simple as waiting until you recover and then contacting an injury lawyer in Wetherby. Although the process is relatively straightforward, you’ll need to make sure you’ve gathered the evidence you’ll need to support your claim before taking action. Firstly, and most importantly, you’ll need to have official medical evidence that you did contract food poisoning and what type of bacteria you were infected with. To get this, you’ll simply need to seek medical attention after falling ill. Your doctor will typically take a small sample of your stool and send it away for analysis to determine what strain of bacteria you were infected with.
Your injury lawyer in Wetherby will also benefit from proof of purchase from the eatery you were made ill by. If a friend paid for the meal, ask them for a copy of their card receipt or the bill.
