£1.3 Million Food Poisoning Claim Settled

09 March 2011

Our client contracted salmonella from food consumed from a local takeaway.  He became so ill as a result of this that he was left permanently disabled and now requires assistance with every day tasks.  He made a food poisoning claim through Russell Jones & Walker once he realised the impact this would have on his life. Our expert food poisoning claim solicitors negotiated with The Financial Services Compensation Scheme, who handled the case following the liquidation of the original insurance company, and agreed a settlement of £1.3 million which has allowed our client to fund the extra care he will require for the rest of his life.
