Food Poisoning Claims

Have you become ill after dining out? Were you injured by a foreign object found in prepackaged food? You may be eligible to make a personal injury claim. Food poisoning and contamination can happen to anyone. Bakers Solicitors specialises in defective product claims resulting from food poisoning. Our team of Aldershot-based solicitors offers clear legal advice and friendly service to help you determine whether you have a valid claim against a restaurant, carvery, cafe, supermarket or food manufacturer.

Proven Expertise With Food Contamination Claims

Symptoms of food poisoning may not be readily apparent following a night out or after cooking a meal with products purchased several days or a week before. Therefore, many people assume they have no right to make a claim at all. However, if you suffered from a digestive illness or injury due to foreign objects in your food such as bone, plastic, metal or glass, we can help you hold a negligent restaurateur, retailer or manufacturer to account.

Our lawyers are especially adept at handling such complex cases, and we offer a free consultation in which to discuss your case. We will advise you on whether you are eligible to make a claim, and if so, can assist you in gathering the necessary evidence to support your claim. We handle cases where food poisoning occurred as a result of:

  • Use of outdated or contaminated food
  • Preparation in unsanitary conditions
  • Unsafe preparation, as in the case of seafood or raw chicken
  • Poor quality packaging that led to contamination

Whether the result of a negligent cook, restaurant management or manufacturer error, we have the detailed knowledge and dedicated resources to pursue your claim.

How We Helped Someone Injured By Drinking A Coffee

In one of our cases, our client purchased a drink from a multinational coffee company. He never thought that he would moments later feel a pain in his throat caused by a foreign substance in the drink. After complaining, he was initially given a gift voucher to buy a few more drinks. He was not happy. He didn't realise that his symptoms could cause months of pain and distress.
