Making a claim in Knightsbridge
When people search for personal injury lawyers in Knightsbridge, it’s normally because they’ve been injured whilst in the area. However, at Accident Advice Helpline we assist claimants from all over the United Kingdom.
If you live locally, or if you’ve been hurt elsewhere, you could still be eligible to make a compensation claim with us so it’s well worth seeking legal advice.
Food poisoning abroad
If you develop food poisoning while on holiday abroad, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim if you booked your package holiday with a UK tour operator. You may have been on an all-inclusive package holiday, for example, and your holiday could have been ruined because of food poisoning. Every year, many British holidaymakers come back to the UK with horror stories about their illness.
Bacteria proliferate in hot climates, and one of the problems facing people who book all-inclusive type holidays is that the buffet-style food can be left out for hours. Sometimes hot food is mixed in with the food that has been allowed to become tepid, and this can cause food poisoning.
If you contracted food poisoning after eating at your hotel, then it is likely that a number of your fellow holidaymakers did too, and on your return to the UK you may all be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the tour operator.
However, if you had food poisoning after eating at a local restaurant, you would not be able to claim compensation from the tour operator and it may not be worth your while to pursue such a claim. You would need to speak with an expert solicitor with knowledge of the country you visited for advice.
