Do you need to make a no win no fee* Derbyshire Dales claim because you’ve been unwell after eating a ready meal?
Whilst many people do like to cook and make meals from scratch, time constraints mean that it isn’t always possible. If you work long hours or you’re busy studying, you simply may not have time to make a fresh meal every day. Instead, you may rely on pre-prepared ingredients or ready meals in order to cater for you and your family.
Although there are meals which can simply be reheated, some people prefer to buy ready-made sauces or mixes and add them to fresh food. Whilst this can take a little longer, it’s still much quicker than making everything from scratch and it can even work out to be cheaper as well.
When people buy ready prepared food, they are generally keen to know exactly what is in the product. Unfortunately, many companies have been criticised for using too many preservatives and low quality ingredients. Whilst price is an issue for most consumers, many are happy to pay a little extra in order to purchase foods made with high quality or organic ingredients.
However, some companies have been accused of using unspecified or unverified ingredients. This is extremely serious and may even qualify as a criminal act. In order to keep our food safe, it’s important that we are able to trace its origin. In addition to this, people with allergies are only able to avoid allergenics by checking ingredients labels. If these are incorrect, or if they don’t list every ingredient, people with allergies may inadvertently consume a substance which could harm them or threaten their life.
If you’ve become unwell or ill after consuming a pre-prepared meal and you suspect that something was wrong with the food, it’s important to raise awareness as soon as possible. By providing the manufacturers with the batch number, they may be able to do a product recall and stop anyone else from getting ill. In addition to this, you may want to contact the Environmental Health Agency as they may wish to perform an inspection. You could also obtain compensation for the harm you’ve suffered by making a no win no fee* Derbyshire Dales compensation claim.
As long as it can be shown that it was the food that caused you to become unwell, you could be eligible to make a no win no fee* Derbyshire Dales compensation claim and you could receive a considerable amount of compensation.
