If you have suffered from food poisoning at the hands of someone else, call a personal injury lawyer in Perton to claim compensation
Food poisoning can happen when a bacteria or viruses infect the food. If conditions are right they will thrive, breed and spread all over the food. There are some pre-emptive moves that all food establishments should take to try and make sure that their food does not become infected, such as:
- Keeping the areas that food touches clean.
- Cleaning anything used to prepare the food.
- Cooking food until it is fully cooked.
- Washing all fresh foods.
- Discarding unused frozen foods that have have been defrosted for quite a while.
- Not keeping cooked food at a warm temperature for a long time.
- Storing food at the temperature they should be stored at.
- Avoiding the cross contamination of foods.
- Not letting food pass its use by date.
- Not letting someone who is sick or has hands that are not clean handle the food.
Those are just a few of the precautions that people who prepare food should take and if they don’t, this could cause the food to make the people eating it sick. The person who prepared the food would then have to face a personal injury lawyer in Perton if the person who got food poisoning wants to make a compensation claim.
How to report a case of food poisoning
You do have to remember that where ever you had eaten the food that got you sick, it is not always their fault. Contamination can happen anywhere in the food preparation sector and it could be the fault of one of their suppliers. Because of this you should report your food poisoning case to the Foods Standards Agency (FSA) who will be able to figure out exactly where the contamination happened and will put a stop to it. If you don’t do this, then other people could suffer just as much, if not more, than you have.
Severe food poisoning can have some dangerous consequences
In most cases, food poisoning clears itself up in a couple of days, but with severe cases of food poisoning, they can often make the person very poorly and can lead to the person being hospitalised – the biggest problem can be from lack of fluids because nothing is staying in the stomach.
Drinking plenty of water is very vital to recovering quickly but remember taking little sips often is much better than taking huge gulps only occasionally. The worst cases of food poisoning has led to damage to the central nervous system and sometimes even death.
