Could accident claims solicitors covering Basingstoke help with allergic reaction claims?
Our personal injury solicitors covering Basingstoke could help if you’ve suffered an allergic reaction due to a food business’ negligence. Food businesses are required by law to inform you of the presence of 14 specified allergens if their foods contain them. For example, for pre-packaged items, they should have allergens listed clearly on the packaging. For dishes served in a restaurant, they should have allergens listed on the main menu, or on a separate allergy menu. If you were to request an amendment to a dish to be prepared without an allergen, they should attempt to comply with your request or tell you that they cannot. They should not serve you the food with the allergen in it anyway. Should you suffer symptoms of an allergic reaction because the restaurant has been negligent in these regards, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. You could claim for minor symptoms such as headaches, stomach problems and hives, for example. However, some allergic reactions could be much more serious. In extreme cases, you could be making a claim for anaphylaxis, or even a fatal allergic reaction of a loved one.
Our personal injury advisors could assess your case to see if you could be eligible to claim compensation. If we believe you could, we could provide you with specialist solicitors who are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who could take on your case and fight for the maximum compensation achievable for your specific claim.
Could accident claims solicitors covering Basingstoke help me claim on behalf of somebody else?
Sometimes, you may be in the position to claim on behalf of another person. For example, if you are responsible for a child who has been injured in an accident that was not their fault. Or, perhaps you are claiming on behalf of somebody that lacks the mental capacity to claim for themselves. By claiming on their behalf, you would be able to make decisions on their claim where they could not be expected to do so. This would make you a litigation friend, and you would have to apply for this position to be able to take on their claim. This is usually a fairly straight forward process. Once you are confirmed as being their litigation friend, you could make decisions about the case on their behalf, and a personal injury lawyer from our team could help to negotiate compensation for them.
