If you have a serious nut allergy, it will be more than likely that you’re all too well aware of what the consequences could be if you were to eat anything that contained nuts, or was prepared in an environment in which nuts may have been present. You’ll probably go out of your way to check every food item you buy, looking over its packaging for nut warnings. A very good idea this will be too, considering that having an anaphylactic attack after consuming nuts could make you very ill indeed, or even kill you.
When eating at home, you’ll be able to have control over the food you put in your mouth; but when you go out for a meal, you’ll by and large have to trust the restaurants you frequent to serve you what they say they’re serving. Many restaurants offer nut-free meals, but some might not be as careful as they should be to make sure that the ingredients they use have not come into contact with nuts.
If you were to suffer an allergic reaction after eating a meal that a food service business told you was nut-free, there is a pretty good chance that you will find yourself in a position in which you might be able to take some form of personal injury action with the help and assistance of a top-flight 100% no win no fee* law firm in Gelligaer.
