If you’re short of money and fancy a good meal out that will actually fill you up, it can be very tempting indeed to get yourself along to an all-you-can-eat buffet. These typically offer a range of dishes laid out on a large table. The idea is that you can go and help yourself to one serving, polish this off, and then return for another. As the title suggests, this process can be repeated until you’re full.
While this will typically be a lot cheaper than visiting even a mid-market restaurant, you’ll usually be pretty confident that the chef who prepared your food won’t have used the finest ingredients. In fact, there might even be a chance that food left over from the day before could be wheeled out again for the service you’re attending. It doesn’t take a health and safety inspector to work out that this could result in patrons coming down with a nasty dose of food poisoning.
Then there’s the fact that the food in these places is left out for all to breathe and sneeze over. Again, this could result in bacteria being passed on that could result in illness. If you’ve come down with something nasty after frequenting an all-you-can-eat restaurant, you might be able to use the services of top 100% no win no fee* personal injury solicitors in Ifield in order to sue the restaurant concerned for a compensation payout.
All-you-can-eat restaurants and making a food poisoning claim with the help of solicitors in Ifield
Imagine that you and a friend, both feeling the pinch towards the end of the month, decide that you fancied a decent feed at a local all-you-can-eat restaurant near to where you live. The food it serves isn’t great, but it’s edible and does fill you up. You do your best to take advantage of the offer, and do indeed eat all that you can manage.
You pay your bill and make your way home. Later that evening, you begin to feel a little off colour and get stomach cramps. As time progresses, you find that you have to make multiple trips to the bathroom. You’ve been given a dose of food poisoning. Under these circumstances, you might be able to use solicitors in Ifield to sue the restaurant owner for compensation, provided that you have medical evidence backing up your claim.
