In this country poisoning is worryingly common and in the most serious cases, it can have devastating and life changing effect on a victim.
Most commonly people associate poisoning with food and there are over 5.5 million cases reported in the UK each year.
The majority of cases concerning bacterial food poisoning can go untreated by a doctor but in it’s most severe form illnesses such as E-Coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter and Botulism can develop and if this happens you should seek treatment quickly.
Other common places where poisoning can occur include industrial work environments, such as farms and factories. Here it is often contracted by exposure to harmful substances or gases, such as pesticides or carbon monoxide, and again should be acted on quickly.
Common symptoms of poisoning where medical treatment is advised, include vomiting and/or diarrhea that lasts over three days, blood in your vomit and stools, seizures, changes to mental state, double vision, slurred speech and signs of severe dehydration.
How will Sincere Law help with the treatment?
By contacting us, you are guaranteed the best medical care, as we have access to some of the top medical practitioners in the UK.
Our priority is your recovery and we will help to arrange any extra assistance the victim, or their loved ones, may need.
In the more severe cases we will handle all arrangements to ensure that the necessary adaptations, special equipment or additional support that may be needed, is in place for when your loved one is ready to return home.
Why should I make a poisoning compensation claim?
Poisoning doesn’t just make you feel unwell, it can also have an impact on how your body functions and can also have long term effects on your health and mobility.
It is possible that you will need around the clock care and a rehabilitation program to help with your recovery. As mentioned before, it is also a possibility that in the most severe cases, adaptations around the home may be required.
Unfortunately these things come at a cost and whilst we appreciation that claiming for compensation is probably the last thing on your mind, if the poisoning was caused by someone else’s negligence or failure to fulfill their duty of care, then it is only right that they should provide compensation to ensure you get the treatment you need.
