Food Poisoning Claims
When food becomes contaminated during manufacturing, processing, preparation or storage, it can cause serious illnesses such as:
- Hepatitis A
Food containing the bacteria E. Coli can lead to severe infections that result in kidney failure. Other symptoms of poisoning include diarrhea, nausea, cramps, dehydration, headache, jaundice, vomiting and muscle weakness. While many instances of food poisoning will resolve after a few days, complications can also arise that can require hospitalization and extensive medical care.
The food industry, along with restaurants and other establishments that sell food, have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of their products. They are required to adhere to government food standards, which include various codes, guidelines and consumer protection acts. Legislation covers both the preparation, packaging and selling of food products. If you became ill from food poisoning due to a business’s negligence or carelessness, contact a
knowledgeable lawyer to discuss your rights to
compensation. You could qualify for damages to cover hospitalization and medical expenses, as well as lost income, pain, suffering and emotional trauma.
