Ribble Valley ‘no win, no fee*’ claims
The majority of people are aware that when they go to any public place either to eat or to buy food to consume off the premises, the person who was in charge of preparing and cooking that food (where applicable) has certain responsibilities towards their clientele.
These responsibilities apply across the board and do not change, irrespective of where the food is purchased from. Therefore, if you have been made ill by any food you purchased from a public place, you have the right to make a claim for compensation which you can do by contacting Ribble Valley ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors.
The Artisan Market
Artisan markets are a current favourite among the hip and trendy and the middle classes alike. Allowing customers to taste organic, fair trade and homemade food products is hugely appealing and these markets are often densely populated.
Artisan markets often stock handmade cakes, pies and local meats and dairy products and with all of these products comes an obligation to the manufacturer or producer to ensure they are fit for public consumption. This means ensuring that all health and safety legislation, including food hygiene rules, are followed to the letter and that they will ensure that the origins of all goods used within production adhered to the same legislation.
Should they fail in their duty, a member of the public could become seriously ill and in this event, that person has the right to make a claim for compensation through Ribble Valley ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors.
Although most instances of food poisoning are, although downright horrible, fairly mild and symptoms tend to disappear after a few days, there are instances where they can be far worse, especially if the victim is particularly old, young or in any other way vulnerable.
However, the law recognises that anyone who receives food poisoning from a public place has the right to make a claim for compensation through Ribble Valley ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors because the organisation who was responsible for their customers’ illness had a duty of care which they neglected and as a result their consumer became injured.
