Food Poisoning Claims

Each year we deal with an increasing number of holidaymakers who become sick after drinking or eating something contaminated with germs, parasites or bacteria. Instead of enjoying a well-deserved time off, they have to deal with the unpleasant experience of food poisoning.

Many people don’t realise that contracting food poisoning from any food supplier is classed as a “personal injury” and they could file a claim against the negligent party in order to receive compensation.

Therefore, a “food poisoning claim” is based on the injuries that affect someone’s digestive system. These injuries are caused by ingesting something that contains large amounts of bacteria.


How long do I have to put in a compensation claim?

Usually you have three years to start legal proceedings for personal injury, however in the case of claims related to Asbestos or delayed symptoms you would have three years from the date the symptoms / causes were identified by a professional.

If in doubt about your right to claim or if a deadline is fast approaching please call us we will be happy to look into your case.
