    No matter where you purchase an item of food, you will have every legal right to expect not be infected with a nasty bout of food poisoning for your trouble. From the burger van on the industrial estate you saw when visiting a DIY store last weekend, to the two Michelin-starred restaurant you go to on special occasions; every food vendor has a responsibility to make sure that the products it sells are safe for human consumption. If they are not and result in somebody falling ill with food poisoning, the food vendor could be liable to pay the victim personal injury compensation.

    Just to illustrate that food poisoning can happen in high-end restaurants as well as in greasy spoons; back in 2010, the sports presenter Jim Rosenthal took chef Heston Blumenthal to court after contracting the norovirus at his award-winning Fat Duck restaurant in Bray the previous year. Like Rosenthal, if this were to happen to you, there might be grounds for you to seek compensation by using the services of no-win, no-fee* injury solicitors in Fordoun.

    Food poisoning and how injury solicitors in Fordoun can help with your personal injury claim

    If your injury solicitors in Fordoun are going to stand a good chance of winning you the personal injury compensation you deserve after suffering a bout of food poisoning, you’re going to need to make sure you’ve had the foresight to get all the evidence you’ll need in place before launching case. First and foremost, you’ll need medical evidence that backs up your claim that you were made ill. If you went to see a doctor after falling ill, this will not be a problem. In an ideal world, your doctor will have taken a sample of your stool to ascertain exactly what type of bacteria you were infected with.

    On top of this, it will also be useful for your injury solicitors in Fordoun if you held onto the proof of purchase you were handed when you paid for your meal. A sample of the food you ate would also be good, but in most cases this will be far from practical. Your chances of bagging a pay-out could be improved if people who ate the same dish as you came down with the same condition. Touch base with the people you dined with to find out how they felt after your meal.
