    Legal help to claim compensation in Middlesbrough

    Hopefully you will never suffer feeling as ill as food poisoning can make you feel. If you do contract this after eating out, having a take away or buying prepared food from a supermarket or shop, you may be able to make a personal injury claim and the best place to get legal help to claim compensation in Middlesbrough.

    The many places you can contract food poisoning

    There are many places that can cause you to have food poisoning, it just takes someone not to take the care they should with the food and it can become contaminated. Suggestions of a few places you could contract the illness from are:

    • Works canteens
    • Hospital cafes, canteens and wards
    • Cruise ships
    • Hotels and b&b’s
    • Restaurants and cafes
    • Takeaways
    • Supermarkets and shops

    If you contract food poisoning in any of these places, you should contact a Middlesbrough law firm or Accident Advice Helpline to discuss making a compensation claim.

    The causes of and preventing food poisoning

    Food poisoning is caused when the food becomes contaminated with bacteria or viruses. Kitchens should be kept clean at all time, and utensils and work areas cleaned between preparing different foods. The people working to prepare the food should wash their hands regularly, and if they are ill should be barred from the kitchen. Others things that can help prevent food poisoning are:

    • Making sure the food is cooked properly
    • Storing the food at correct temperatures, particularly chilled foods
    • Do not keep cooked food warm for long periods as this is a perfect breeding ground for the bacteria
    • Discarding any thawed frozen food that has not been used
    • Not using food that is past its use by date

    Most of these things are common sense and the sorts of things you would do in your own home, but you cannot always rely on a food eatery or supplier to act in this way. If where you have purchased you food from does not treat the food correctly, or is not hygienic, and you suffer food poisoning because of their actions, you should contact our Middlesbrough law firm to make a compensation claim.
