You can call us at any time on one of our freephone numbers, which are given below.
Food poisoning is one of the illnesses which might be caused by the negligence of another person. If salad vegetables have not been thoroughly washed, for example, bacteria could still be lurking on them. The chef at a restaurant may not have cooked your meat or fish at the right temperature for long enough, and this could also cause food poisoning. If there was cross-contamination of meat, fish and vegetables in the preparation stage of the meal, you could also become ill.
You would need to have kept the receipt for the meal in order to claim compensation from the restaurant’s owner. You should also have received medical treatment for the condition, as you will need a medical report, too. The case should be reported to the local department of Public Health and Hygiene, so that an investigation can be made.
If you had food poisoning while on holiday abroad, you may be able to make a claim on your return if you booked a package holiday with a UK tour operator. If your illness was caused by food from the hotel in which you were staying, you and your fellow holidaymakers could make a claim for illness against the tour operator.
