Food poisoning might not usually be considered an injury, but under personal injury law, it is. If you contracted food poisoning from a restaurant or other food supplier, you could be entitled to make a claim.
There are a number of different ways you can contract food poisoning. Usually, it stems from poor food handling or hygiene. It can be caused by the cross-contamination of foods, the use of dirty utensils or having bad hand hygiene when handling foods. Other causes are storing foods at the wrong temperatures, supplying out of date food or refreezing food that has been previously frozen.
The symptoms of food poisoning are unpleasant and can be embarrassing to discuss. They include:
- And dehydration
While symptoms usually pass quickly, they can last for longer and can cause serious harm in some cases. If you’ve suffered from food poisoning, ensure that you stay well hydrated and take rest, and see a medical professional if symptoms last more than a day or two.
