I want to claim compensation for food poisoning in a Beefeater Grill, how can I prove that my illness was caused by the food in the restaurant?
As with any personal injury claim, you must be able to prove that you were injured due to the negligence of a third party, and in order to claim compensation for food poisoning in a Beefeater Grill it is important that evidence is collected to link your illness to the food you were served in the restaurant.
The easiest way to do this is with an Environmental Health Department report that confirms poor hygiene standards or the presence of harmful bacteria in the restaurants kitchens. If contaminated food is found by Environmental Health Department officers after making an inspection, it is probable that your claim for food poisoning in a Beefeater Grill restaurant will be successful. You should therefore report your illness as soon as possible so that an inspection can be arranged.
It must also be proven that you purchased a meal in the restaurant concerned, so your Beefeater Grill food poisoning compensation claim should be supported by a receipt from your meal or an itemised credit card or debit card statement from the person who paid for the meal. It is also advisable to return to the restaurant to make a report of your illness in the Beefeater Grillâ€™s accident book, especially if you do not have any proof of purchase.
If other diners in your group also fell ill after eating a meal, statements can be taken which can be submitted in support of your claim. Your medical records will be used as proof of having contracted food poisoning so it is vital that medical attention is sought, and also that you obtain an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your illness. If the cause of your illness can be established, this will help to link it to the food in the restaurant.
To ensure that the strongest possible Beefeater Grill food poisoning compensation claim is prepared, we recommend using a personal injury solicitor to prepare and pursue a claim for food poisoning in a Beefeater Grill restaurant.
