There are many injuries you can sustain in a Ruthin car accident, but food poisoning is not one of them. This is contracted by eating food that is contaminated by bacteria and viruses, and it can make you feel very ill. While you are feeling so rough you can also experience stomach crimps, vomiting and diarrhoea, just to compound how bad food poisoning is.
If you could get food poisoning from a Ruthin car accident, there would be a lot more cases, as people tend to take less care on the road than they do when preparing food, particularly if the food is for someone else.
Just a few bacteria is all it takes,but they multiply quickly so that when you eat the food it will make you ill. If you have eaten out at a restaurant, for example and you have become ill after it, then you may want to use the services of Accident Advice Helpline to help you to make an injury compensation claim.
Precautions to stop food poisoning, but they won’t stop a Ruthin car accident
The contaminated food happens when the proper care is not given to the food while it is being handled. Below are some of the most common causes for this to happen:
- The cooking area has not been kept properly clean
- Work surfaces and utensils are dirty
- Some one who is ill or has dirty hands touching the food
- Cross contamination of food
- Using refrozen food
- Serving food passed its use by date
- Not cooking the food properly
- Not storing the food at correct temperatures
- Leaving cooked food for too long at warm temperatures
Anywhere that supplies food to the public has a duty to make sure it is safe to eat, and if they do not comply they could face a personal injury claim as well as prosecution from the Foods Standards Agency.
People who have a low immune system, such as people with HIV or cancer can be prone to getting food poisoning, and it is also more dangerous for the. Also women who are pregnant and babies are more likely to suffer from this condition as well. The elderly are also at risk.
Most cases will clear on their own in a few days, but at its worst it can damage the central nervous system and even cause death.
