Most of us enjoy our food. The preparation, presentation and sharing of a meal with a loved one or going out to celebrate a special occasion are often treasured – sometimes, however, it can turn sour.
Incorrectly prepared/stored or poorly cooked food may lead to bacterial poisoning, which can have devastating consequences – we understand how bad it can be.
Often the appearance of this bacteria is very hard to detect – if you cannot see, smell, or taste its presence it is possible to happily munch through many a delicacy without the slightest hint of bother.
The consequences can be extremely painful and sometimes even result in fatality.
It is not unusual for a whole group of family or friends to contract food poisoning at the same time if they eat a meal together at home or in a restaurant.
Common Types of Bacterial Infection we come across are:
- E.coli O157
- Clostridium perfringens.
If you have been the victim of food poisoning through no fault of your own you may have a claim.

Only in very exceptional circumstances will it be necessary for you to come in to our offices.
Our experts will handle every aspect of your claim and keep you updated on a regular basis.
Will I have to go to Court?
It is very unlikely that you will have to go to Court. Most cases are settled via telephone or written negotiation.

Yes. It is necessary to obtain a medical report so that your solicitor can place an accurate value on your injuries. Your medical appointment will be at a convenient time and place close to where you live.

You are entitled to make a claim for your personal injury, any loss of earnings, travel and medical expenses, any care required, and any other out of pocket expenses.

Yes. In some circumstances we may help you apply for an interim payment to assist you with any immediate financial issues you may face.
This could provide you with funding for treatment or home improvements such as wheel chair access and support handles.
Are you able to arrange my treatment?
Yes. We work with a number of rehabilitation providers who are able to assess your needs and arrange the appropriate course of treatment.
These charges will be claimed from your employer’s insurance company, meaning that you are not out of pocket.
What will this cost? How will my claim be funded?
Your claim is likely to be run under a Conditional Fee Agreement.
This is often referred to as a No Win No Fee agreement. This means win or lose you pay nothing.
