Food Poisoning Compensation Claim
Been food poisoned? Claims National can help you receive compensation.
In most cases, the effects and symptoms of food poisoning are mild and brief. It is not uncommon to have a ‘stomach upset’, diarrhoea, and vomiting.
However, thousands of people every year suffer with much more serious food poisoning, some of which can be fatal. The most common and most dangerous bacteria that cause food poisoning are Salmonella, E Coli and Listeria with victims of these types of food poisoning often being hospitalized.
Food poisoning can occur when there are problems cooking foods at home but the bacteria responsible can also be spread through poor hygiene in restaurant kitchens or other food preparation areas. Often, there are no visual clues as to whether the food you are being served is contaminated and symptoms can take anything from a few hours to several weeks to appear.

Food poisoning is a common illness that around 5 million people suffer with each year. Although in most cases food poisoning is not serious, it is still an extremely unpleasant experience to go through, especially when in most cases, the sufferer is blameless.
You can claim for compensation if it is proven that you were not the person responsible for cooking or serving the food eg if you have eaten at a public restaurant. This is because it is then certain that you have received the food poisoning through somebody else’s negligence. This could be down to them undercooking your food, having a salmonella infected workspace, or even the simplest things such as not disinfecting their hands before handling your food.
Furthermore, if you have gained food poisoning on holiday, you may be able to claim compensation against your tour operator, as it is their duty to ensure that all food provided on the holiday is decontaminated from harmful bacteria. However, obtaining food poisoning in the UK is easier to claim compensation against, as there are strict laws in place about the hygiene of kitchens and the quality of food served in public places. Claiming for compensation for food poisoning consumed in the UK would be claimed against food retailers if the food was contaminated with harmful bacteria, or the lace in which you ate the food, if your food poisoning was caused by the undercooking of the food.
