Make a ‘no win, no fee’ Harome compensation claim for food poisoning
Toxins that can be found in food can cause severe food poisoning. Vomiting and diarrhoea are usually the main symptoms. Foods that are particularly susceptible to contamination if not handled, stored or cooked properly include:
- Raw meat and poultry
- Raw eggs
- Raw shellfish
- Unpasteurised milk
- ‘Ready to eat’ foods, such as cooked sliced meats, pâté, soft cheeses and pre-packed sandwiches
Experiencing food poisoning can completely ruin any day out or romantic meal. If you can prove that you have contracted food poisoning and it wasn’t your fault, you could claim ‘no win, no fee’ Harome compensation.

How can food be contaminated?
Food can become contaminated at any stage during production, processing or cooking. For example, food poisoning can be caused by:
- Not cooking food thoroughly (particularly poultry, pork, burgers, sausages and kebabs)
- Not storing food that needs to be chilled at below 5°C correctly
- Leaving cooked food for too long at warm temperatures
- Someone who is ill or who has dirty hands touching the food
- Eating food that has passed its ‘use by’ date
- Cross-contamination (the spread of bacteria, such as E. coli, from contaminated foods)
