When the sun comes out, more often than not, so does the barbecue. For some reason, people seem to enjoy filling their gardens with noxious charcoal fumes and eating fatty meats that are invariably either over or under-cooked when the mercury rises. If you go round to somebody’s house for a barbecue one sunny afternoon, you might be interested to know that you could be in a position to take some form of 100% no win no fee personal injury action with the aid of a Stratford-on-Avon law firm if you’re unfortunate enough to be given a bout of food poisoning.
That’s right; it’s not just food service businesses that you can take action against in such circumstances. It might not do your relationship with the person in question an awful lot of good, but if you contract food poisoning as a consequence of eating a dodgy burger or hotdog while attending their barbecue, you could be in line for a compensation pay-out.
Barbecue food poisoning and Stratford-on-Avon law firm action
It’s always advisable to be wary of what you’re eating when at a barbecue, no matter who’s hosting it. You can go some way to avoiding being struck down with food poisoning and being put in a position where taking some form of 100% ‘no win, no fee’ action with a Stratford-on-Avon law firm might be on the cards by taking a quick look at any food that’s offered to you.
If a bag containing an ominous-looking piece of meat is thrust into your hand, sneak a peek at it to make sure it’s cooked properly. If it isn’t, tell your host that it could do with a few more minutes or shove it on the nearest bin, depending on the type of relationship you have with the person holding the barbecue.
If you do come down with something nasty, seek medical attention as soon as you can, no matter how much discomfort you’re in. This will serve two purposes. Firstly, you’ll be able to make sure that you haven’t contracted anything that might be a more serious threat to your health. Secondly, it will mean that your condition will be officially recorded in your medical notes. Your Stratford-on-Avon law firm will need this as evidence if you do decide to take action. A stool sample may be required.
