If you have reason to look for a law firm in Caerphilly, it is to be hoped that it’s nothing to do with eating the cheese of the same name that originates from this part of the country, and that is still made here. It was first made circa 1830, and originally, only here in the town of Caerphilly; but in more recent years, such has become its popularity, that it’s now made in several other locations throughout England too.
One reason that people start claims is for food poisoning. The reason you might possibly fall foul of food poisoning, is that proper Caerphilly cheese is made with unpasteurised milk. Pasteurisation is a process whereby the product being pasteurised is heated to the level where any harmful bacteria are killed off. Unfortunately the same process also kills of the good bacteria too, which is why many cheese purists actually insist on tracking down unpasteurised cheeses, be they Caerphilly or Brie etc. They maintain that the texture and flavour are much better when not pasteurised.
Need a law firm in Caerphilly to launch a food poisoning claim?
To be fair, the incidence of food poisoning from unpasteurised products is very low. It can happen however, particularly with infants, or elderly folk, or indeed anyone who has a compromised immune system. Food poisoning in these instances can have serious consequences and could easily spark off a personal injury claim, if the victim wasn’t aware of the fact the cheese was unpasteurised, because a shop, pub or restaurant, failed to convey this information. It would seem quite ironic if a law firm in Caerphilly helped to launch a claim for compensation relating to Caerphilly cheese.
Finding out how much your claim might be worth
Most cases of food poisoning are not serious; they’re over and done within 24/48 hours having caused some vomiting and diarrhoea. But with those who are more vulnerable (as referred to above), it can cause serious illness and in rare cases can even prove fatal. The more serious and debilitating, the more compensation you could be due.
