Food poisoning is caused when bacteria contaminate undercooked or unwashed meat, poultry, fish, or fruit and vegetables. Strains such as salmonella, e-coli, botulism and listeria are amongst the most common bacteria which cause food poisoning. If the food has not been cooked properly the bacteria may not have been killed, and this can cause gastrointestinal infections, diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps, If you believe that your food poisoning may have been caused by eating in a certain restaurant or shop, or if you contracted food poisoning while staying in a hotel, you may be entitled to compensation if the owners are found not to have taken adequate hygiene and food storage precautions. You can ask our team of specialist solicitors** Leeds about your case and they will be able to advise you about whether or not your claim for compensation is likely to be successful.

Bacteria on Food

Bacteria live naturally on certain foods and in the human gut, and most are not harmful to us. However, others can cause illness or even serious infections. One example is campylobacter, which is found on poultry and meat as well as in unpasteurised milk and untreated water. Clostridium perfringens can be found in soil, so may contaminate vegetables that have not been properly washed. Listeria is commonly found on some cheeses and pates, and can cause food poisoning and stomach pain. Our Leeds solicitors** deal with many cases of food poisoning caused by these and other types of bacteria.

Make a Claim for Bacterial Food Poisoning in Leeds

If you believe a restaurant, hotel, shop or holiday company may have been negligent then it is important that you keep all documentation which may support your claim, such as receipts or packaging. You must also tell your doctor your suspicions, as the Environmental Health Authority may need to be involved. You may be able to claim compensation not only for the expenses incurred as a result of your food poisoning (such as cancelled travel, or transport or medical bills), but also for the suffering and discomfort you may have experienced. Our Leeds lawyers will be able to give you an idea of the amount of compensation you could claim, depending on your individual case.
