Injury Solicitors in Gifford

We all need food to survive and whether we cook it ourselves or eat somewhere else, there is always a risk of bacteria getting into the food and causing food poisoning. This can happen anywhere you eat and it is not always the fault of the eatery that has prepared the food, the contamination can happen anywhere along the food chain.

If you eat out anywhere, whether it is a restaurant or the works canteen, and the food makes you ill you probably have contracted food poisoning and should contact injury solicitors in Gifford to make a food poisoning claim.  You should also report he problem to the Foods Standards Agency for them to trace the source of the bacteria, and stop it happening to others as well.

How to avoid food poisoning, according to injury solicitors in Gifford

Keeping food good is mainly common sense but it is amazing just how many times that common sense goes out the window and the bacteria or viruses are allowed to contaminate food.  There are simple precautions that can be taken to reduce the risks, such as:

  • Ensuring the food is cooked properly
  • Storing food at the correct temperatures
  • Not letting someone who is ill handle the food
  • Keeping all preparation areas and cooking areas clean
  • Avoiding cross contamination of food by cleaning utensils and work surfaces between the preparation of each food
  • Do not use food that is past its use by date
  • Once cooked, do not keep the food warm for prolonged periods
  • Wash all fruit, salad and vegetables thoroughly

The precautions food outlets should take are no different to what you would do in your own home and can stop the need for them to face injury solicitors in Gifford if a customer makes a food poisoning claim.

How food poisoning will affect you

Food poisoning usually starts within a few hours of eating the bad food, but can take up to three days to manifest itself.  Then you will feel sick, have vomiting and diarrhea and stomach cramps.  The best thing is to rest and drink plenty, in sips is the right way.   Do not attempt any food until you are feeling much better and then make it things that are easy to digest, like toast.

If after 48 hours you are not improving you should seek medical attention.  Normally food poisoning will clear of its own accord after a couple of days, but at its worst can damage the central nervous stem and even cause death.
