A typical food poisoning claim might relate to uncooked food someone ate from their local takeaway, at a restaurant, hotel or from a supermarket. Most people recover quickly from food poisoning but even symptoms which last only a week are usually sufficient to be able to recover compensation with the help of a solicitor.
However, there are a few cases each year which affect people badly and who are never quite the same again after being hit with food poisoning. In some cases, someone can be affected severely and be forced to change their diet and the food they can and can’t eat because of the bacteria inflicted upon them. In cases such as this, compensation awards can be quite significant. An Aequitas Legal lawyer would be able to advise you about whether you have a good chance of recovering compensation.
If food poisoning has ruined your holiday, you may be eligible to claim financial compensation. Holiday food poisoning is often caused by:
Of these causes of holiday food poisoning, we find at Aequitas Legal that the most common food poisoning cases comes from undercooked or inadequately prepared food. In such circumstances, it is possible to make a claim for financial compensation providing you can prove that your holiday sickness was due to the result of inadequate care and systems in preparing and cooking food on the part of the hotel or restaurant etc.
If you are planning to make a claim for financial compensation after contracting food poisoning, it is wise to collect as much information and evidence as possible about your illness and the hotel, resort or restaurant’s health and safety policy. Most importantly, report it to the Manager and insist it is logged in the accident report book. Speak to others to find out if they experienced similar symptoms, take their contact details, and try to take photographs of any examples of poor hygiene you find around the hotel, particularly in canteens, kitchens or restaurant. For example, food may be left out for long periods uncovered with flies swarming around. It is also important to seek medical advice.
If you cannot get any of the information we just mentioned, don’t worry; you can simply call our expert solicitors here at Aequitas Legal and one of our expert solicitors or new enquiries expert will be able to assist you with your claiming.

I’d just like to give a very positive feedback to Ansa Rashid took on my case & finally got things moving. Before that I had Susan Mason who never answered my calls or emails & the case was ongoing still 3 years on. Ansa took over, got things moving & even through her busy day rang me mostly every week, sometimes on the phone an hour or so. I can not fault this woman she is amazing at her job. Very professional, caring, trustworthy & motivational. Plenty of times I wanted to to throw the towel in but she just wouldn’t let me give up. The case took 4 years in the end & even though we didn’t win I’d still recommend her to everyone. Thank you Ansa you are a star In the making

I was involved in an accident which was not my fault, and was recommended to use Aequitas Legal. From the start, the whole journey with the team was both efficient, professional and sophisticated, with everyone essentially making the process so easy. Their ‘in-Case’ App made simple things like documents and letters so accessible, and meant I could access any import documents at anytime in seconds. I first spoke to Sucheet, who was the gentleman in charge of the company, who explained how everything would work, and pointed me in the direction of Connor, who would be my main liaison during the case. Together, they both ensured I was given the best advice, and seamlessly helped me through the case, which was concluded with a positive outcome! I could not recommend this company more, and will always be my go-to firm.
I was amazed on how determined the team were in seeing my case through. If you are looking for a reliable, easy and transparent team to handle your case, here they are. I would like to thank Somia who I believe either led or coordinated my case for doing a fantastic job in both seeing the case through and communication.
The team at Aequitas Legal were excellent. They were very responsive to questions with appropriate answers as well as being very supportive. They reassured my husband & I throughout our case & helped to acquire an amazing settlement of our case without having to attend court. I would greatly recommend their services to anybody unreservedly.
Highly recommend Aequitas who have recently dealt with my successful case. Special thanks to James Sloane who made the process much easier ; very professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply. Also very encouraging and supportive with regular updates as well as spot on with getting paperwork and documents organised.
For someone like myself who has never been involved in a legal process I'm delighted with how my case was handled with this company.
Fantastic service from Ansa. Shes worked hard on my case and kept me up to date and well informed on everything that was happening. Pleasure to deal with. She deserves the 5stars!
