There are various causes of food poisoning,  the most common of which is bacteria and viruses which can often occur as a result of poor food hygiene at the manufacturing, storage or during the preparation process. The effects can be extremely unpleasant and can last days but sometimes much longer.

In some cases, food poisoning can lead to serious debilitating long term conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), rare conditions such as  Guillain-Barré Syndrome and other associated illnesses. Our dedicated food poisoning team have successfully recovered substantial compensation for clients with a variety of infections including Botulism, E Coli,  Salmonella, Shigella, Giardia, Campylobacter, Norovirus, Cryptosporidium and other associated infections.

Food retailers and suppliers have a responsibility to meet the hygiene standards to ensure customers do not become ill.

We are here to help

Michelle Victor and her team have extensive experience of bringing individual and group food poisoning claims. Unfortunately, incidents of food poisoning are not rare and continue to be on the increase. As the consequences of food poisoning vary, it is important for individuals and food establishments to be vigilant when it comes to food hygiene. This would ensure that food is safe and fit for human consumption otherwise the consequences of falling standards can be fatal.

Consumers must have confidence in the food they consume through increased government funding for enforcement agencies to police food safety laws and punitive sanctions for those breaching food safety laws. If you have been affected by food poisoning then contact our food safety team on the details below.
