If you don’t have a serious allergy that would leave you requiring medical treatment if it were to be triggered, it’s pretty likely that you’d view the mispackaging of food and drink items as fairly inconsequential. If you do suffer from a serious food allergy that would leave you in need of medical help should it be triggered, it’s likely you might be less relaxed.
Don’t have a food allergy that would leave you needing medical treatment if it were to be triggered? Then try imagining buying a box of headache tablets only to discover the packaging actually contained medicine for schizophrenics after you consumed some. It would be no laughing matter, and one that you might very well be able to take personal injury action over with the aid of a top 100% no-win, no-fee* practice of solicitors in Guernsey.
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from any type of allergy that would require you to seek medical help should it be triggered, you might also be able to seek compensation if you were to be made ill after suffering a reaction after consuming a mispackaged or wrongly labelled item.
Mispackaged items and solicitors in Guernsey
For those who know anything about nut allergies, it will be no surprise at all to hear that if anybody who had a severe one were to consume a product containing nuts that had been mislabelled as one that did not, the circumstances could be severe. The individual could go into anaphylactic shock. Their throat could close up making it difficult for them to breathe and they could die if they did not get treatment as soon as possible.
Imagine, if you will, that you had an allergy to penicillin and were to be given a drug that was labelled as not containing any, but in fact did. Again, you might be able to retain the services of a decent 100% no-win, no-fee* practice of solicitors in Guernsey with a view to seeking recompense under these circumstances. And quite rightly so.
