My wife and I want to make claims for food poisoning in a Hungry Horse pub after contracting salmonella, how much are our claims likely to be worth?
It is not possible to calculate the value of your claims for food poisoning in a Hungry Horse pub without being provided with detailed medical information about your symptoms and the severity of the infections you have both suffered. Compensation amounts in claims for food poisoning in Hungry Horse pub depend on the level of pain and suffering caused and the time it takes to make a full recovery.
Several other factors can affect the amount of pub food poisoning compensation that can be recovered and no two cases will be exactly alike. It is even possible that the amount of Hungry Horse food poisoning compensation that will be awarded to you and your wife will differ, even though you have suffered the same illness from eating in the same pub.
In order to determine the value of your claims for food poisoning in a Hungry Horse pub, and to confirm that you are both eligible to take legal action, you should speak with a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible. A solicitor will assess each individual claim for Hungry Horse food poisoning separately and will calculate the amount of pub food poisoning compensation that can be claimed under general damages.
General damages cover the inconvenience of suffering from an illness and the pain and suffering caused, which are the main element of a personal injury claim. A claim for Hungry Horse food poisoning can also be made for special damages to claim back any costs and expenses that you have both had to cover as a result of your salmonella food poisoning.
If you have had to take time off work due to salmonella food poisoning and you do not receive sick pay, you can recover lost earnings under special damages in addition to lost overtime and missed pension contributions. Medical treatment costs, private medical care — if appropriate — and other costs and expenses can also be recovered under special damages when you make your claims for Hungry Horse food poisoning compensation; provided they can be substantiated with a receipt or invoice. Your solicitor will advise you if an expense can be included in your claims when your case is prepared.
