    As one would rightfully expect, food products are made and packaged in tightly controlled environments. When you think about it, people place a great deal of trust in food manufacturers and food retailers. Most assume that the food items they buy will be safe for consumption without the need for the product in question to be thoroughly checked over before it’s consumed.

    Most of the time, this doesn’t present a problem. But on rare occasions, foreign bodies that could cause a person harm if consumed can make their way into food products, either as a result of honest mistakes in the manufacture and packaging process or through malicious tampering.

    If you or a member of your family are injured or made ill as a result of a foreign body having made its way into a food product you consumed, there will be a chance that you might be able to claim personal injury compensation from the food manufacturer or the retailer that sold it to you with the help of a decent personal injury lawyer in Kelso.

    You’ve probably read news stories about people discovering mummified birds in their packaged salads and the like. But imagine what the consequences could be if shards of glass made their way into your food. If this happened with a product that you would typically consume straight from the packet, it would be most unlikely that you would realise something was wrong until it was too late.

    You’ll typical only be able to launch a personal injury claim with the help of a good personal injury lawyer in Kelso if you were actually injured by the offending food stuff. If you discovered contamination prior to consumption, it would be unlikely that you would be in line for a pay-out.
