This article may contain nuts
We have all seen warning labels on foods to advise that certain products may contain nuts. Some of these labels may seem unnecessary, especially those which are put on packets of peanuts, for example. However, they are there to serve a purpose and that’s to provide a blanket warning that items prepared and packaged within that warehouse, factory or distribution centre may have come in to contact with nuts or other nut-based products.
With some people suffering from nut allergies that are so severe that even the smallest amount of exposure can cause almost instant death, this is not something that you can be too careful about. Manufacturers and food producers have a legal obligation and duty of care to their staff and to the people who will ultimately consume their products to keep them safe. This involves advising them of any potential risks that their products can pose to them.
If a manufacturer does not take these steps, and does not ensure that food is appropriately labelled in this way, then it is entirely possible that accidents or injuries will ensue and no win no fee* compensation Derbyshire claims can be made against them.
Making a no win no fee* compensation Derbyshire claim
If you have suffered a personal injury as a result of the actions of someone else then the law allows for you to make a personal injury compensation claim against them. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we can help people file claims for compensation no matter what the situation, and this includes where exposure to known allergens has taken place. We can also help families of people who have died as a result of such exposure seek compensation on behalf of their loved one.
The first thing you need to do when you are contemplating making a no win no fee* compensation Derbyshire claim is to take our 30 second test. This will tell you almost immediately not only if you meet the criteria to make you eligible to make such a claim, but it will also give you a good indication as to how much your claim might be worth.
We will then arrange for you to speak with one of our solicitors who can speak to you in more detail about the nature of your accident, and advise you on the best way to proceed with your no win no fee* compensation Derbyshire claim. They will work with you to gather all of the information that is required to secure your compensation, and will do all they can to make sure that you get the maximum amount due to you.
