Rock is a village in Cornwall on the Camel estuary. It is popular with those who enjoy water sports. It is believed that the village got its name because of the presence of a quarry (now a car park) which provided ballast for boats that had discharged their cargo at nearby Padstow harbour. Rock is a haunt of the rich and famous and has been called “Britain’s Saint-Tropez,” “Chelsea-on-Sea” and the “Kensington of Cornwall” with its visitors including Prince Harry, the Al-Fayed family and Hugh Grant, the actor, to name but a few.

Have you had food poisoning after eating out?
Did you know that you might be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you had food poisoning after eating out or after eating a contaminated product? If you had to receive medical treatment for a case of food poisoning, and you know that you got it after eating something bought from a shop or supermarket, or after having a meal out, you should talk with a personal injury solicitor.
If you bought a product that was contaminated with bacteria, you should have the receipt and packaging so that it can be analysed by the Food Standards Agency. The receipt will help in a compensation claim case.
If you had food poisoning after eating out the Food Standards Agency will investigate so that an epidemic does not occur. You may be able to prove that your food was not thoroughly prepared or properly cooked, in which case, the negligence of the kitchen staff could be shown to have caused your illness. You could then make a claim against the restaurant owner for the pain, distress and suffering caused to you.
