Common illnesses

Illnesses affect thousands of people every year and when the illness is caused by the negligence of another party, it can often be even more distressing for the victim. Depending on the nature of the illness, you may suffer a great deal of pain and disruption to your personal or professional life. You are entitled to be compensated for this disruption, which is where an experienced solicitor can help. 

There are a variety of illnesses that can affect individuals, including:

  • Food poisoning
  • Legionnaire’s disease
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Allergic reactions to food such as fish or nuts

Typical causes of illness

While some of these illnesses are more serious than others, they can all have a detrimental effect on your life, often forcing you to incur large costs in the form of medical treatment, specialist medication and time off work. These costs can form part of a compensation claim if your illness was another party’s fault.

Some of the most common causes of illnesses include:

  • Staff not following customer allergy requests.
  • Health and safety regulations not being adhered to correctly.
  • Unclean kitchens and inadequate food preparation.
  • Failure to provide the correct safety equipment.
  • Failure to undertake relevant risk assessments when dealing with unsafe environments.
