    Just because you frequent fancy restaurants and are not the type to dine out at even mid-market eateries, it won’t mean that you’ll be entirely immune from coming down with a nasty dose of food poisoning after enjoying a long lunch or late dinner at your restaurant of choice. In fact, there will be just as good a chance of you picking up something nasty at a Michelin-starred restaurant as there will be at the greasy spoon over on the wrong side of town.

    If a worker at an up-scale eatery fails to maintain hygiene standards or not cook certain ingredients properly, you could find yourself ensconced in the bathroom for hours on end dealing with the consequences. If you find yourself in this scenario, it might be tempting to think that your condition was probably caused by something you ate elsewhere, and not at that delightful little restaurant you’ve been going to for years. Don’t. If all the evidence points to your condition being caused by an eatery you dined at, consider launching a claim for personal injury compensation through a first-rate injury solicitor in Christchurch.

    Food poisoning and injury solicitors in Christchurch

    If your injury solicitor in Christchurch is going to stand as good a chance as possible of winning you the compensation to which you might be entitled, you’re going to need to make sure you have plenty of evidence to support your argument that the restaurant you’re bringing a complaint against was the cause of you being made ill.

    You’ll need to have medical evidence that you did come down with food poisoning and what type of bacteria you were infected with. Provided you sought medical attention, your injury solicitor in Christchurch will be able to get this from your doctor. It will be most useful if your doctor took a stool sample to determine what you were infected with.

    You’ll also need proof of purchase from the restaurant that made you ill. If anybody else in your dining party also fell ill after consuming the same dish as you, this might strengthen your case if they also have proof of the bout they suffered.
