If you believe someone else is responsible for your food poisoning, it is essential to seek early legal advice. At John Mickelson Law Corporation, we can examine whether a third party is to blame for your illness. This could be a restaurant, grocery store or manufacturer. If so, we can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
Food poisoning claims
When you buy food at a restaurant, grocery store or market, you expect it to be safe to eat. Unfortunately, however, that is not always the case. It may be that the food is out of date, was it was not prepared properly, or was contaminated. Whatever the cause, the outcome is the same – food poisoning.
Anyone who has had food poisoning will know that it is an awful experience. Symptoms typically include vomiting and diarrhoea, which can in turn lead to severe dehydration. This can result in hospitalisation and a prolonged period off work. For vulnerable patients, it can even be fatal.
If this happened to you or your loved one, it is worth investigating whether the manufacturer, distributer or restaurant was negligent in their food handling or preparation. If so, you could be in a position to make a food poisoning claim. This ensures you are compensated for your pain, suffering and out-of-pocket expenses.
