    Lawyer in Thornham


    You might need to use a lawyer in Thornham from Accident Advice Helpline, if you have been out at a restaurant and eaten some food which has made you ill, probably giving you a bout of food poisoning.

    Food poisoning can make you feel very ill, as well as causing sickness, diarrhoea and stomach cramps. If your case is more serious then you may have to be hospitalised and this could also mean that you have permanent weaknesses because at its worst it can damage the central nervous system, and even cause death.

    Contact a lawyer in Thornham if you think that you have been served food contaminated with bacteria, and they will guide you through the process of making a personal injury compensation claim.

    The common causes of food poisoning and using an injury lawyer in Thornham

    The cause of this illness is contaminated food normally with bacteria or viruses. Some of the bacteria is quite well known, such as:

    • Salmonella
    • Escherica Coli (E.Coli)
    • Campylobacter (the most common cause of food poisoning in the UK)

    If you have suffered this terrible illness from a meal at a restaurant or a takeaway, then you could be entitled to use an injury lawyer in Thornham at Accident Advice Helpline to make a personal injury claim on your behalf. Our lawyers have the knowledge and expertise to make sure that you get the correct amount of compensation that you deserve for being made to feel so ill.

    Avoiding the need for customers to use an injury lawyer

    Most food eateries do their best to be hygienic and ensure their customers do not become ill. But sometimes the contamination has happened before the food reaches them, and it is usually not visible to the naked eye. If you are served any food that does not taste right, smells odd or the colour seems strange, refuse to eat it as it may well be contaminated.

    There are things within the eatery that can cause a problem as well though, such as:

    • The food not being properly cooked
    • Cross-contamination with other foods
    • Food not being stored at the correct temperature
    • Food being cooked and then kept warm for long periods
    • Some one that is ill or has dirty hands, handling the food
    • Unused frozen food being refrozen
    • The kitchen not being kept clean at all times
