Claims for Food Poisoning in a Loch Fyne Restaurant

If I make claims for food poisoning in a Loch Fyne restaurant will I need to go to court in order to receive compensation for salmonella food poisoning? What is the claim process likely to involve?

Not all claims for food poisoning in a Loch Fyne restaurant will require litigation through the courts, as it is often possible to arrive at an appropriate settlement figure with the insurance company that provides the restaurant’s public liability insurance policy. Court action is usually only required when liability for the illness is rejected by the insurance company, or when the amount of compensation for salmonella food poisoning being claimed is particularly high.

We recommend using a personal injury solicitor to prepare and pursue Loch Fyne restaurant food poisoning compensation on your behalf, and that you seek legal advice as soon as possible. If the insurance company is willing to negotiate a settlement, an experienced personal injury solicitor will help you get the best possible settlement as compensation for your illness.

The claims process starts with the preparation of the case and the collection of documentation to support your case. A copy of your medical records will need to be obtained as proof of illness, in addition to documents which can establish that you ate in the restaurant. These can be credit card statements which show that you purchased a meal in the restaurant or a receipt of purchase if you paid in cash. If you made an accident book report this can also be submitted with your claim.

You should have reported your food poisoning to the Environmental Health Department so that an inspection of the restaurant can be made. The report issued by Environmental Health inspectors can be submitted in support of your claim for Loch Fyne restaurant food poisoning compensation, and should link your illness with the food you consumed in the restaurant.

When your case has been fully prepared, a claims letter will need to be drafted and sent to the restaurant manager. He or she will notify the insurance company that provides the restaurant’s public liability insurance company, and the claim will be investigated before the decision will be made by the insurance company to accept or deny liability for your illness. If liability is accepted, a settlement should ne negotiable, and if not it will be necessary to litigate through the courts.

If strong claims for food poisoning in a Loch Fyne restaurant are prepared it is probable that the insurance company will be willing to settle the case without having to litigate through the courts.
