There are few worse ways to round off a lovely evening that might have involved taking in a show, a few drinks and a meal than coming down with a nasty dose of food poisoning in the wee, small hours of the morning. Feeling the worse for having taken a few drinks at first light will be one thing, but having to spend the best part of the night glued to the lavatory will be quite another.
If you find yourself in this most unfortunate situation or another like it, chances are that something you ate will have triggered your condition. If you had spent the previous day eating out at restaurants for both lunch and dinner, it won’t be too difficult to deduce that the bug you contracted probably came from one of the eateries you dined at. As such, you may be in a position to retain a 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitor with a view to suing the restaurant that made you poorly for Ripon compensation.
Food poisoning and Ripon compensation
Now, if a top 100% no win no fee solicitor is going to stand as good a chance as possible of winning you the Ripon compensation you deserve, it will be vital that you have medical evidence that proves you suffered the food poisoning bug you claim to have contracted. As such, you will have needed to have sought medical attention for your condition. No matter how bad you were feeling after falling ill, you will need to have either seen a GP or popped along to an NHS drop-in centre. If possible, avoid visiting an A&E.
It will help your case immensely if a co-diner who ordered the same dish as you came down with the same condition. Talk to your dining companions to find out if this was the case. Your 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitor will also need your proof of purchase from the eatery in question. If you were being treated to a meal, ask the person who paid for it if you could have this.
