Food poisoning injury claims

These are some of the outcomes we can achieve for you:

  • Important things to consider

    Here are some important things you should be aware of when making a claim for food poisoning:

    • Our lawyers are highly experienced in handling food poisoning claims which have happened in a wide range of establishments, including restaurants, fast-food chains, hotels, supermarkets and food suppliers.
    • You do not need to visit our offices. We can arrange meetings at your convenience at a time that is suitable for you.
    • In most cases, personal injury claims must be made within three years of the occurrence of the injury or the date on which you became aware of it.

    How much will it cost?

    If you would like DAS Law to help you with a claim for food poisoning, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including: 

    Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)

    If you have a motor or home insurance policy which includes LEI cover, your legal costs may be covered by your policy (subject to the terms and conditions of the policy). If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.

    Conditional Fee Agreement (No win, no fee)

    If you do not have LEI cover, we can still deal with your injury claim through a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) – commonly known as ‘No Win, No Fee’. We also assist our clients in obtaining an After The Event (ATE) insurance policy at no upfront cost.

    If you have legal expenses insurance, your legal costs may be covered by your policy

    By entering into a CFA (subject to our terms of business) you have to pay only when we are successful in winning you compensation. You pay nothing if you lose your claim. This way you can ensure that your personal finances are not at risk when pursuing your personal injury claim. This option means that you won’t have to pay anything if your compensation claim isn’t successful.

    Our personal injury specialists will be happy to explain these options to you.

    The Consumer Protection Act 1987 makes it easier to claim compensation for food poisoning which happened in the UK. The Act says that the food retailer must sell a product which is free from harmful bacteria which could cause food poisoning.
