If you consume food provided by a restaurant or other food retailer, The Supply of Goods and Services Act states that your food should have been produced with reasonable skill and care, be of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.
When you buy food from such establishments you trust that what you have been given is safe to eat. If the restaurant or other food retailer has been negligent and caused you to be ill as a result of their negligence, you may be able to persue a claim for compensation.
There are some initial steps you could take if you suspect you have suffered food poisoning:
If you intend claiming compensation for personal injury arising out of food poisoning we recommend you speak with a solicitor that specialises in this area as quickly as possible as it's important to get the right evidence and take appropriate steps at various stages of the claim. At TMJ Legal Services we have years of experience of dealing with these type of claims.
