How Much Compensation For Food Poisoning?

Food poisoning occurs when an individual consumes poorly prepared, uncooked or contaminated food.

While some people may suffer from minor food poisoning symptoms, others could experience debilitating effects for the rest of their lives. If you have suffered food poisoning because of the negligence of a restaurant, cafe, hotel or supermarket, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

While every case is different and it is impossible to value a potential claim without knowing more about the individual circumstances. However, the figures below will give you an idea of the amount you could receive.

Level of food poisoning

Potential compensation

Severe food poisoning which has induced significant pain, diarrhoea, vomiting, irritable bowel syndrome, haemorrhoids.

This will also be the bracket for those who have been unable to work as a result of their symptoms.

£30,630 – £41,860
Food poisoning where symptoms are serious but short-lived and include discomfort of bowels and a degree of malfunction.

If you have also experienced a lack of enjoyment of food and/or an ability to enjoy a sex life then these factors will also be considered in this bracket.

£7,600 – £15,300
Food poisoning causing significant discomfort, stomach cramps, loss of bowel function and fatigue.

Hospital admission can sometimes be necessary in these cases. Symptoms may persist for weeks after but complete recovery can take up to two years.
