Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Worthing compensation claim after suffering an allergic reaction?
If you have allergies or are allergic to a specific substance, you may need to take great care when you eat or drink anything at all. Whilst some allergies are relatively mild, they can still cause alarming and distressing symptoms. In more serious cases, an allergy can cause a person to suffer a life-threatening anaphylactic shock. If you suspect that you have an allergy, it’s essential that you consult a doctor as soon as possible. In many cases, they are able to confirm what substances you are allergic to and provide medication which can be administered in the event of an allergic reaction.
Once you know what substances trigger your allergy, you should be able to avoid them. Although this can be time-consuming and restrictive, it is obviously preferable to suffering an allergic reaction. In most cases, restaurants and cafes are able to cater for people with allergies, providing they are made aware before an order is placed. In fact, some restaurants even provide information of their menus regarding allergic substances and the ingredients they use.
Unfortunately, however, some restaurants do not adhere to the appropriate practice when serving a person with allergies. If the information isn’t passed on to the chef, they could make a dish without realising that it should be modified. In other cases, they may use something, such as a sauce, without realising exactly what ingredients it contains.
If you have eaten out and specified that your meal shouldn’t contain a specific ingredient and the restaurant fails to respond accordingly, you could make a ‘no win, no fee’ Worthing compensation claim against them, if you are hurt or unwell as a result.
Similarly, if a supermarket or food manufacturer were to list the ingredients of products incorrectly and you suffered an allergic reaction as a result, you could potentially make a ‘no win, no fee’ Worthing compensation claim against them.
