Food poisoning happens when the food we eat or drink is infected, either with bacteria, parasites, viruses or chemicals. The most common type experienced is usually bacterial poisoning, which happens when food hasn’t been stored, prepared or cooked correctly.
It can be difficult to know if food is contaminated just by sight, smell or even taste, which makes food hygiene all the more important. Since bacteria spreads and multiplies very quickly, food can become heavily contaminated in a short space of time – and since there is more chance of food poisoning when there is more bacteria present, that means the likelihood of poisoning grows rapidly.
Usually cases of food poisoning happen in groups, because a family or group of friends may contract bacterial poisoning when going out to eat at a restaurant, or eat a meal together at home.
If you contracted food poisoning and you believe someone else was at fault, you are legally entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Such an award can compensate you for pain and suffering, or the physical or emotional stress you endured as a result of your injury.
Since these kinds of cases can sometimes be complex, as you will have to prove liability, it’s a good idea to make sure you are represented by an expert lawyer in Knowle or anywhere else in the UK. Not only will they understand the law as it applies to your case, but they will also know exactly what you can claim for. They are also likely to get you on average 275% of the award you would get if you represented yourself.
