Injuries in West Down
West Down is a lovely and idyllic civil parish and village located in North Devon between the well known locations of Braunton and Ilfracombe. In the 2001 census, West Down’s population was 620, but this has grown in recent years. Located near to Devon, and with little cafes of its own, it may not be likely that one could suffer from food poisoning in or around the area. But however unlikely, it could still happen to you.
Have you suffered from food poisoning in West Down?
There are many reasons as to why someone could experience food poisoning such as:
Food not being cooked properly – Ensure that all of your food is properly cooked. When cooking at home, if you check that your food is cooked according to the cooking instructions, you’ll be able to protect yourself from any nasty bugs or illnesses that may cause you a stomach upset or severe food poisoning. Read all food labels properly before you cook. This is in order to make sure you are doing things as they are supposed to be done.
Check the dates on food – Even though you may think that food is still okay to eat, eating food that is out of date could give you severe food poisoning. Therefore, take a look at the date, and make sure your food has not exceeded it. If your food is out of date, it might be a good idea to eat or cook something else to save yourself from the hassle of experiencing food poisoning.

While you can’t claim for compensation if you have poisoned yourself, you may be entitled to claim through our personal injury lawyer in West Down if you have ended up with food poisoning through the fault of somewhere or someone else.
