What happens in an injury solicitor Hook food poisoning claim?
Your Accident Advice Helpline personal injury lawyer will first of all need to establish that you have actually had food poisoning. This may be done by referring to your medical or hospital records or to laboratory tests that were carried out when you were ill.
Then the personal injury lawyer has to establish that food from a particular food premises made you ill. This can be tricky to prove. It greatly helps if it can be shown that your case was part of a much bigger outbreak of food poisoning. Outbreaks can occur locally, nationally or even internationally. You may be one of hundreds of people that have been made ill by a particular food product or by food from a particular manufacturer or catering premises.
Environmental Health Departments (at your local council) will thoroughly investigate outbreaks of food poisoning and the outbreak report may contain evidence that shows what was the cause of the outbreak. They may have conducted an epidemiological investigation which will show exactly what caused people to be ill.
This can involve interviewing thousands of people and can take months to complete. They may have found exactly the bacteria that made you ill at the suspect food business and this would be called microbiological evidence. They may also have found serious food hygiene issues at the food premises in question and the restaurant or café may be facing a hefty fine as well as an injury solicitor Hook food poisoning claim.
For this reason it is always a good idea to contact both your doctor and the local Environmental Health Department if you suspect that you have suffered from food poisoning. They have techniques that will help you to remember what you ate and when you ate it. It is very important to give the information as accurately as you can as it may affect the outbreak investigation as well as your injury solicitor Hook food poisoning claim.
