How to Claim Compensation
To start a food poisoning compensation claim you will need to provide us with the details of what happened. This should include where and when the food was eaten and what happened to you. Then a Personal Injury Lawyer who specialises in food poisoning cases can review your compensation claim on a No Win No Fee basis. Once an expert Lawyer has reviewed the details, we will assess your chances of success and proceed on that basis.
Food poisoning happens when food or drink is contaminated with bacteria, parasites, viruses or sometimes even chemicals or pesticides. It’s often hard to tell if food and drink are contaminated because the look, taste and smell may not be affected. If you have got food poisoning from a restaurant you can sue that restaurant.

If you have suffered from food poisoning or have become ill from drinking contaminated water in the UK, consumer protection laws make it easier to claim compensation. The law requires food retailers to sell products which are free from harmful bacteria that can cause food poisoning.
If you’ve been on holiday and suffered from contaminated water or food poisoning, you can claim compensation regardless of how you booked the holiday. Travel regulations are in place to protect people who suffer from food poisoning on holiday abroad and at home, irrespective of whether you booked your vacation as a package holiday or booked each element separately.
