Most Chinese restaurants are actually very hygienic. They have to be in order to remain open. Food hygiene health and safety is tougher now than it has ever been.
Food poisoning can happen in any kitchen
Spotlighting any particular cuisine is totally unfounded of course. Any restaurant, regardless of ethnicity could be suspect. All it takes is a slip up in some aspect of food purchase, or storage, or preparation, and the seeds are sown for a minor epidemic. In most cases, food poisoning events are relatively minor affairs in terms of severity, and wouldn’t warrant a no win no fee* in China Town claim for compensation being made.
However, if the person who became ill was either very young, or perhaps more elderly, their immune systems might not be up to the job, and more serious injury could result, and if so, then a compensation claim could well be on the cards.
Potential causes of food poisoning
There are 3 main culprits that cause the majority of food poisoning incidents:
Salmonella and E.coli are both types of bacteria, while Norovirus, as the name suggest, is a viral infection.Open Claim Calculator
No win no fee* in China Town
One of the key factors in launching a successful no win no fee* in China Town injury claim is timing. It’s important to put your claim in as soon after the event as possible. In actual fact there is a three year window during which, following the incident, it is technically possible to raise a claim. However, as experienced injury claim lawyers, we say: “Why wait? The sooner you act the better”.
The value of the compensation
The amounts of compensation that are applicable for personal injury claims vary widely dependent on many things:
- The type of injury
- The circumstances in which the injury was sustained
- The severity of the injury
- The consequences in terms of lifestyle and quality of life thereafter
- Any expenses that were and/or are incurred
You can get an estimate as to how much compensation you may get by using the HOW MUCH calculator on the website. Just provide some basic information and within 30 seconds you’ll be given an estimated figure.
