Dodgy drinks and injury solicitors in Formby
When you think about it, people put a great deal of trust into the manufacturers and retailers that sell them drinks. You may have read about two freak cases in 2013 that involved men dying after consuming liquids from soft drinks bottles that had been laced with the liquid form of crystal methamphetamine and cocaine by drug dealers.
Although these were very extreme examples of what can happen if a drink has been contaminated, it does illustrate how easily you could become ill by drinking a liquid that was not fit for human consumption for whatever reason. Consuming some dodgy liquid that went on to make you ill might mean you’ll be able to use the services of a good 100% no win-no fee solicitor to sue the individual or business that sold you the offending beverage, for compensation.
Perhaps you ordered a draught lager at your local pub, only for an absentminded barmaid to serve you from a tap that was full of caustic line cleaner. If the pub you were in was dark and you were also the worse for having already had one too many, you might not notice the mistake and take a large glug out of your freshly poured pint of cleaning chemicals. This would make you very ill.
Maybe you were in a supermarket and purchased a smoothie that was out of date without noticing it. If you gave this to your child and she became ill after drinking it, you might be able to take action against the business that sold you the item on her behalf.
