Compensation for food poisoning in a care home

When the time comes that you are no longer able to support yourself, chances are that you will more than likely end up in a care home of some type. Although across the UK there are a number of high quality care homes which are designed to provide you with the best possible care they can, unfortunately this is not always the case and due to several negligent members of staff you could be left suffering at the hands of the wrong care home.

If you do find that you have suffered from negligence in a care home then you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred, or any trauma that you have experienced as a result.

IF I SUFFER FROM FOOD POISONING IN A CARE HOME, WHO COULD I CLAIM AGAINST?

If you feel that you have been the victim of food poisoning in a care home then you could look to make a compensation claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you and in this situation it will most likely be care home staff.  Staff is responsible for preparing any food that you eat at the care home and as such if you are left with food poisoning through a lack of hygiene, these are the people who you are most likely to look to claim against.

IF AN ERROR IS MADE HERE WHERE COULD I CONSIDER A CLAIM?

You could consider making a claim in any situation where you have sustained food poisoning and some common examples of this include:

  • Claims for failure to reach proper hygiene standards in the kitchen
  • Claims for failure to serve food at an adequate temperature

  • Claims for failure to adequately cook food
  • Claims for the negligent preparation of food
