If you have been injured in the last three years, and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation. The amount you are able to claim depends on the type and severity of your injury. Personal Injury Claims Birmingham can help you get the compensation you are entitled to. Our compensation guide outlines the levels of compensation for some of the most common types of injury.

Food Poisoning Personal Injury Claims Birmingham 

If you have contracted food poisoning, or suffered another, non-traumatic injury, you may still be able to claim compensation. Such cases normally arise where there has been formal travel. If you have been abroad on holiday and suffered from food poisoning or disease-related injury or loss, you may be able to claim compensation.

The level of compensation obviously depends on whether or not the illness is temporary or leads to a permanent or long-standing complaint.

Level of compensation awarded for food poisoning claims 

The levels of compensation you might be able to expect are as follows:

  • £25,250 - £34,500

Severe toxicosis leading to severe pain, diarrhoea, sickness & vomiting and fever. In most cases, there will have been a period of hospitalisation for weeks or months. There will also need to be ongoing symptoms such as irritable bowel syndrome or incontinence and these will have had a detrimental effect on the life and work of the sufferer.

  • £6,300 – £12,600

This level of compensation will be awarded for relatively brief, but serious, episodes of food poisoning. Vomiting and diarrhoea will pass over a period of 2-4 weeks, but there will be ongoing disturbance of bowel function and enjoyment of life. If the symptoms are more severe, the court may make an award between the top of this bracket and the bottom of the one above.

  • £2,600 - £6,300

Food poisoning which causes significant discomfort, cramping, changes in bowel function and fatigue. There must also be hospitalisation for a few weeks but complete recovery within a few years. 

  • £600 - £2,600

These are the most minor cases. There will normally have been pain which lasts for a few weeks, accompanied by vomiting and diarrhoea.
