    Purbeck ‘no win, no fee’

    Food is something every living thing needs to survive, and people have many systems in which to properly provide and supply food to the general population. Whether it comes from a supermarket, restaurant, butcher or greengrocer, we expect food that will do nothing more than run our bodies and taste good too. Still, sometimes, things aren’t done properly and the worst can happen.

    E-Coli is the common name for Escherichia coli which is usually only found in the digestive system, specifically the lower intestines, of healthy mammals, and not on food. There are many strains of this and, though not all are harmful, some are, and can even cause death if ingested. At Accident Advice Helpline, our Purbeck ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors know this and are ready to help with any incidents of this that were not your fault.

    How E-Coli Poisoning is Contracted

    E-Coli is usually transferred from the faeces of humans and animals onto food in several ways. Usually, it comes down to human error in regards to proper hygiene in the food production and service industry. Meat can become contaminated by improper handling at processing plants; though can usually be destroyed by proper cooking or washing. However, contaminated meat could easily transfer the bacteria onto other kitchen surfaces, food, or cutlery, and is especially dangerous in foods eaten raw. It can even occur after contact with animals without hands being immediately washed, as some strains can transfer this way. Mostly, this can all occur through no fault of your own and, if someone else is to blame, then our Purbeck ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors can help.

    Symptoms of E-Coli Poisoning

    As there are many strains of E-Coli, and every person is different, the poisoning can cause many diverse symptoms, the seriousness of this differing vastly. Poisoning can range between the sufferer feeling ill for a short while, to long term illnesses and damage including issues with the kidneys, and, in worst cases, death. It can be especially dangerous to the very young and the old, as well as those with weaker immune systems.

    The most common symptoms of the different strains include stomach cramps and pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, and even blood in stools. This can cause vast fluid loss in the body, which is a serious problem that can require hospitalisation. Any and all of these are enough to cause serious discomfort and stress, physically, mentally and financially, and, our Purbeck ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors are here to get you the compensation you need and deserve.
