    Have you suffered the distress of food poisoning? You need help from the injury solicitors in East Sheen!

    Food poisoning is often a condition which goes unreported to medical practitioners as it can result in mild symptoms which are short lived. However, food poisoning can be severe causing debilitating symptoms and long term effects. At its worst, it can affect the central nervous system and even cause death.

    If you have suffered a bout of food poisoning as the result of an incident that wasn’t your fault within the last 3 years’, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim using Accident Advice Helpline’s injury solicitors in East Sheen.

    Causes of food poisoning

    Food poisoning may be caused by:

    2. Salmonella bacteria – are found in raw and lightly cooked eggs and poultry.
    3. Listeria bacteria – are found in ready to eat foods such as pre packed foods, pate, soft cheeses, unpasteurised milk, untreated water, smoked salmon and cooked sliced meats.

    One type of parasitic contamination is Toxoplasmosis which is caused by eating foods that have been contaminated by infected cats’ faeces.  This can be avoided through thorough washing of foods grown in the ground to remove any contamination.
