Accident Advice Helpline may well be called into action to support a no-win, no-fee claim in Chester-le-Street, if any Chester-le-Street residents are among the 318 people who went down with food poisoning recently on the Royal Caribbean Cruise liner.
This follows hot on the heels of another recent incident whereby over 60 members of the crew and passengers of a different Royal Caribbean cruise liner also went down with food poisoning. The virus in both instances is being classified as something called the “Norovirus”, a gastrointestinal virus that according to US sources kills over 800 people per year in the States.
Food poisoning injury claims
Accident Advice Helpline have handled thousands of food poisoning claims in the more than 15 years since we’ve been helping people to claim financial compensation for injuries or illnesses they’ve sustained, or contracted through no fault of their own. Most are individual cases, but there are the odd occasions whereby a number of diners have contracted food poisoning at the same establishment, at the same time. Nothing quite as large as the 318 on the Royal Caribbean cruise liner however.
Three important criteria needed to qualify any injury claim:
In order for a no-win, no-fee claim in Chester-le-Street for any type of injury to have credibility it must fulfil three criteria.
- The cause of the incident that causes the injury, whether it’s food poisoning, or a broken bone, or some other sort of physical injury, must be attributable to a third party
- The injury or illness must be relatively serious
- The incident/injury must have occurred within the past three years
Accident Advice Helpline always seek maximum compensation.
Looking after our clients’ best interests
In the case of the cruise liner passengers, most were treated with over-the-counter medication, although full details are yet to emerge. In these types of cases, the people responsible for the incident (in this case the Royal Caribbean) will themselves offer compensation to passengers who have been affected.
This is done not only to salvage their reputation, but also to minimise any costs they may incur. In these instances, or instances that are similar, it’s always worth considering taking action and employing the services of someone like Accident Advice Helpline. We have no interest in keeping costs low; instead we’ll always pursue the maximum amount of compensation.
