Injury solicitors in Church Enstone
Christmas is typically the busiest time of the year for restaurants, which is why many of them tend to withdraw online voucher offers and 2 for1 deals during the festive season. And who can blame them. From works’ dos, to friends who haven’t seen each other all year, the holiday season is a peak time for eating out. Many restaurants take on additional staff to help them cope with the extra influx of customers, while others might extend their opening hours.
But no matter how many workers an eatery takes on, there will always be a chance that the increased workload put upon a restaurant in the run-up to Christmas could put pressure on kitchen staff. So much so, that hygiene levels may suffer as a consequence.
If the kitchen staff in a restaurant were so run off their feet that they disregarded their duty to make sure they were adhering to strict hygiene rules while trying to keep up with demand prior to Christmas, you and your dining companions could wind up with a rather unpleasant dose of food poisoning. If this were to happen, you might like to look into the possibility of using an injury solicitor in Church Enstone to sue the eatery in question for compensation.
Festive food poisoning and injury solicitors in Church Enstone
As the symptoms of food poisoning typically take between one to three days to come on, your Christmas could be well and truly ruined if you were to pick up some nasty bacteria at a restaurant just before the big day. In fact, you could be spending the lion’s share of proceedings on the lavatory instead of opening your presents, tucking into your turkey and watching the Queen. Although there will always be next year, it’s likely you’ll probably want to use the services of a first-rate injury solicitor in Church Enstone to seek recompense from the eatery that ruined your Christmas.
If you do, you’ll need to have been to see a doctor to get your condition officially documented. If you start feeling ill on Christmas Day or Boxing Day, or any other time when you can’t see your GP, you may need to get yourself along to your local accident and emergency department or your nearest NHS walk-in clinic. If you plan to use the latter, check that it’s open before setting off. Without medical proof that you were indeed suffering from food poisoning, any injury solicitor in Church Enstone will have trouble winning you compensation.
