If you are unlucky enough to suffer from food poisoning, you will know that it can make you feel very ill indeed. It can be contracted from anywhere that serves food that has been contaminated with bacteria, or from food from shops and supermarkets that also has been contaminated. It is not always the fault of the eatery you ate at, it can happen anywhere in the food chain, but knowing that will not take away the nausea and stomach pains that accompany it, and will not stop you wanting to make a compensation claim using an injury lawyer in Thornhill to help you.
This countries laws say that if you have been made ill or injured through the fault of someone else, whoever is responsible for your condition should pay you compensation. This is very rarely offered, and when it is it is usually less than it should be. The best way is to make a personal injury claim, and a lawyer in Thornhill or one of our experts can help you to do this.
Food poisoning and using an injury lawyer in Thornhill
Food poisoning usually clears itself over a couple of days, but if you still feel ill after 48 hours, you should seek medical attention as you may have one of the more serious forms of the condition.
You should always have plenty of sips of water when you have food poisoning. This will stop you dehydrating, but do not attempt to eat anything until you feel totally better, and then make sure it is something that is easy to digest. Most of us must remember our mothers feeding us dry toast when we had an upset tummy as children, and this is still one of the first foods people turn to after a bout of food poisoning.
You should contact an injury lawyer in Thornhill or one of our expert advisors to discuss compensation if you have been made to feel so ill through the fault of someone else.
The victims more likely to suffer
There are some groups of people that are more susceptible to food poisoning, and they are more likely to suffer more than normal, such as:
- The very young
- Elderly people
- Pregnant women
- People with low immune systems such as cancer sufferers and HIV patients
The more serious forms of food poisoning can cause long term problems for the victims, damaging the central nervous system and sometimes causing death.
