Injury Solicitor in Coleford


Making a claim for food poisoning

Amongst the many different things for which individuals can make a claim is food poisoning. Nevertheless, this isn’t something for which many individuals understand that they can make a claim. However, many people who have been made very ill by food poisoning are now realising that they may have a claim for compensation. When making a claim for food poisoning, here are some things to remember.

  • Do you know exactly what caused the food poisoning?

If you know for sure what caused the food poisoning, it’s much simpler. If you’ve eaten numerous various kinds of foods recently and are unsure exactly what has made you ill, it becomes a lot harder to make a claim. If you’ve visited a dining establishment and eaten things you have not eaten before, that could be the issue, so you should try to identify the issue if you can. Your GP or local hospital medical professionals may be able to perform tests to isolate the type of bacteria causing the problem if you are struggling.

  •  Was it triggered by someone’s negligence?

Bear in mind that in order to claim compensation for an individual injury, you have to verify that someone was negligent in causing it. Lots of gastrointestinal disorders are caused by cooks, chefs and other individuals in the food industry being negligent, for example by not separating cooked and raw meat, storing food incorrectly and the like. If you’re unsure, ask an injury solicitor in Coleford to find out whether you do qualify to make a claim.

  • Do you have proof?

At the time when you get the gastrointestinal problems, attempt to gather and keep as much proof as you possibly can. If you think ahead and know that you can make a claim for your suffering, you need to make certain to visit the doctor or hospital. Various other things such as receipts, product packaging and products can assist to show that you were made ill due to carelessness or neglect.
