Compensation for food poisoning in hospital
If you are currently staying in hospital then chances are that you are likely not in a good condition, and the last thing that you need is a situation where you could be subjected to further illness. Although conditions in hospitals are generally incredibly sanitary – and as a result you are kept in a good level of health – unfortunately this is not always the case, and as such you could find yourself the victim of food poisoning.
Hospital food is very carefully prepared, but unfortunately mistakes can still be made, and if you are the victim in this way then you could find that you have been left with more serious injuries than you had initially.
IN WHICH SITUATIONS MIGHT A COMPENSATION CLAIM BE CONSIDERED?
If you have been the victim of food poisoning in a hospital then there are a number of different situations where you could potentially consider a claim. These include:
- Claims for poorly prepared food
- Claims for food which has been incorrectly stored
- Claims for food which has not been correctly cooked
- Claims for food which has been prepared in an unhygienic environment
- Claims against an unqualified chef
WHOSE NEGLIGENCE COULD HAVE LED TO MY INJURIES?
If you have been left with injuries from food poisoning in a hospital, then chances are you will most likely be aiming your compensation claim towards the catering department. In general, the chefs in the kitchen are directly responsible for ensuring that you maintain the best level of health possible and as a result you could find that if you do sustain food poisoning, you could be able to make a claim against them to cover any costs that you have incurred.
