When Accident Advice Helpline is the firm of injury solicitors Cullen townsfolk call upon, it is sometimes with a view to launching a personal injury claim for food poisoning. The fact that the town of Cullen on the northeast coast of Moray in Scotland is the home of Cullen Skink is nothing to do with food poisoning per se, although of course any food can cause food poisoning if it’s incorrectly prepared, or any of the ingredients are in some way contaminated.
Cullen Skink is basically a fish chowder, traditionally made with smoked haddock. It’s absolutely delicious! It’s a real winter warmer and is on sale in many local pubs in and around Cullen town. Food health and safety is treated very seriously, and most venues are very meticulous and abide by the food industry’s HACCP procedures. But it doesn’t take much for food to become contaminated. Sometimes the outcome from things like Salmonella and E-coli can be very serious.
An injury must be deemed serious enough – says AAH – the injury solicitors Cullen residents use
AAH as the injury solicitors Cullen townsfolk use, have extensive experience in dealing with cases of food poisoning. Very often there are several claims launched at the same time because a number of diners order the same contaminated dishes. But just having an upset stomach for a few hours wouldn’t be enough to warrant a claim for damages. The injury sustained must be far more seriousness, like being hospitalised for several days, which can of course happen, because food poisoning can actually be severe enough in the worst case scenario, to prove fatal.
Checking out the basics
One way to establish if you have the basics for a personal injury claim and to find out just how much it could be worth is to check out the HOW MUCH calculator on our website’s homepage. You need to provide six pieces of basic information, and once done, if your claim satisfies certain basic criteria, you’ll find out within 30 seconds, how much compensation you may be due. Please note however that this does not guarantee you have sufficient proof to successfully win your claim – that will be the next step, when the solicitor allotted to your claim checks out the full details with you.
