Is it possible to make a claim for food poisoning in Cafe Rouge as I missed work for a month after sustaining E. coli?
If you have sustained food poisoning in Cafe Rouge it may be possible to make a claim to compensation if their negligence has resulted in your illness. However before making a claim for Cafe Rouge food poisoning you are advised to first receive immediate medical attention. E. coli can deteriorate into something far more serious if left untreated, and if it is considered that you contributed to the severity of your illness by failure to seek immediate medical attention — or if you attempted to treat your illness by yourself — your compensation for Cafe Rouge food poisoning can be reduced to reflect your negligence. By seeking professional medical attention following your Cafe Rouge food poisoning accident, you will receive appropriate treatment for your illness, verify whether your illness was caused by food poisoning at Cafe Rouge and create a record of your illness in your medical records, which is essential if you wish to claim compensation for food poisoning.
After you have received medical attention for your food poisoning in Cafe Rouge, you should consult a personal injury solicitor at the earliest opportunity in order to discuss the details of your illness. Your solicitor will then examine your claim in detail and determine the strength of your claim for Cafe Rouge food poisoning, establish the amount of compensation you may be entitled to claim, assess the evidence which may be required to support your claim and advise you on whether you should continue with pursuing compensation. The evidence which can be gathered may include your medical records as well as testimony of any other customers who may have been involved in a Cafe Rouge food poisoning accident.
When enough evidence has been gathered to support your claim for food poisoning in Cafe Rouge, a Letter of Claim will be sent by your solicitor to Cafe Rouge’s insurance company, stating your intention to claim compensation. The insurance company will have twenty-one days in which to acknowledge the letter, after which they have ninety days to conduct an investigation into your Cafe Rouge food poisoning accident and accept or challenge liability for your illness. If liability is accepted, your compensation for Cafe Rouge food poisoning can be negotiated between your solicitor and the insurance company. Court action may be required if the insurance company reject liability for your claim for Cafe Rouge food poisoning, although an out-of-court settlement is still possible.
It should be remembered that insurance companies frequently make offers of compensation to the victims of a Cafe Rouge food poisoning accident for which their policyholder is liable. However these offers are usually made with the goal of saving money for the insurance company rather than providing the victim of an accident with the compensation for Cafe Rouge food poisoning they deserve. For this reason, you are advised to first refer this settlement offer for your claim for Cafe Rouge food poisoning to a personal injury solicitor before accepting. Your solicitor can assess the effect your food poisoning in Cafe Rouge has had upon your life and determine the amount of compensation to which you should be entitled to claim.
