    If you have had food poisoning in the last three years and this was caused by someone else’s cooking, then a personal injury lawyer in Rhuddlan will help you to make a claim for compensation

    Food poisoning happens when food gets contaminated through viruses or bacteria. There are precautions in place to stop foods from becoming contaminated, some of which are:

    • Cooking food thoroughly;
    • Washing all fresh foods properly;
    • Keeping food preparation areas clean;
    • Not leaving frozen foods on sides to defrost;
    • Not using food past its use-by date; and
    • Making sure all food handlers wash their hands thoroughly.

    These are to name just a few precautions in place to stop food poisoning happening. If food poisoning does happen, then eatery owners may face a personal injury lawyer in Rhuddlan if and when a customer makes a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Reporting food poisoning

    In some cases, you may think that the food poisoning you contracted is the fault of the restaurant, cafe or takeaway at which you ate. This is not always the case, as sometimes food contamination can happen when the food is being packed, or at another stage in the food preparation process, so in this case the fault would lie with the suppliers.

    You should always report a case of food poisoning to the Foods Standard Agency (FSA), who will then track the source and stop it before anyone else becomes infected.

    More serious cases of food poisoning can have severe consequences

    The majority of food poisoning cases clear themselves within a few days of rest and drinking lots of water. In severe cases of food poisoning, though, dehydration can occur due to not getting enough fluids into the body. At its worse, this can lead to damage in the central nervous system, and sometimes even to death.
