What should you do after Food Poisoning?

  2. Report the food poisoning to the place where the food was from as soon as possible and ask for the person’s name who you speak to
  3. Keep the receipt confirming payment for the food/meal
  4. Obtain a copy of your Bank Statement confirming payment if you paid by debit or credit card
  5. Obtain a copy of your itemised phone bill to show the phone call ordering the food highlighting the relevant phone number

What do the specialists say about Making a Food Poisoning Claim?

David Healey from Carter & Carter Solicitors commented:

“To make a food poisoning claim it is important to have as much evidence as possible as in the past, we have found the business in question may try and deny it was them and/or that if it was them there was nothing wrong with the food and they had no other complaints.  Each meal is totally separate so just because no-one else was taken ill doesn’t mean that there wasn’t a problem with the food.  Just because you haven’t got the information suggested above, it doesn’t mean that you cant make a compensation claim, if in doubt get in touch.”
