Food poisoning has a number of different causes, including when bacteria contaminates undercooked or unwashed meat, poultry, fish, or fruit and vegetables. Strains such as salmonella, e-coli, botulism and listeria are some of the more common bacteria which cause food poisoning. If the food has not been cooked properly the bacteria may not have been killed, and this can cause gastrointestinal infections, diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps, If you believe that your food poisoning may have been caused by eating in a certain restaurant or shop, or if you contracted food poisoning while staying in a hotel, you may be entitled to compensation if the owners are found not to have taken adequate hygiene and food storage precautions. You can talk to the Wakefield specialists about your case and they will be able to advise you about whether or not your claim for compensation is likely to be successful.

Bacteria live naturally on certain foods and in the human gut, and most types of bacteria will cause us no harm. However, certain types may result in illness or serious infections. One example is campylobacter, which can be found in many different items, including poultry, milk and water. Another example is Clostridium perfringens which can be found in soil (and therefore becomes a problem when vegetables are not been properly washed. Regardless of the type of bacteria, solicitors** Wakefield deal with many cases of food poisoning and have a detailed understand of several types of bacteria.

Make a Claim for Food Poisoning

If you believe a restaurant, hotel, shop or holiday company may have been negligent then it is imperative that you keep copies of all documentation which may support your claim, such as receipts or packaging. You must also speak to your doctor as the Environmental Health Authority or other organisations may require medical reports. Such medical documents will also assist to show the extent of the injury. You may be able to claim compensation not only for the expenses incurred as a result of your food poisoning (such as cancelled travel, or transport or medical bills), but also for the suffering and discomfort you may have experienced. Our Wakefield lawyers will be able to give you an idea of the amount of compensation you could claim, depending on your individual case.
