Claiming Compensation for Food Poisoning at A Restaurant in Spain

Spain restaurant illness statistics

Source – https://www.gideononline.com/2012/06/23/salmonellosis-in-spain/

Take a look at the graph above; it shows the frequency of cases of a number of different illness that could fall under the heading of a stomach upset or have food poisoning like symptoms. Due to the frequency of such cases, we can discern that your chances of catching food poisoning at a restaurant in Spain are much higher than at home in the UK. Indeed, this is the very reason why we came up with the well-known English phrase “Spanish tummy”. Yes, food poisoning in Spain is quite common.

There are many ways that food-poisoning can be contracted, that would lead a person to make Spain food poisoning and illness claims. Some of these are:

Food that has been prepared in an unhygienic kitchen or served with unhygienic utensils.

  • Food that has been left standing on a buffet table for too long.
  • Food that is either undercooked or has been reheated.
  • Food that has been washed in an uncleaned water supply
  • Food that has been kept at the wrong temperature.

These are the most common reasons why food goes bad and can cause food poisoning when consumed. If you need to make a compensation claim for a case of food poisoning that you caught in a Spanish restaurant while you were on holiday, then call Legal Expert on the phone number down at the bottom of this page, and we can start your claim today.

Compensation for Burn Injuries at A Restaurant in Spain

By the very nature of the business of a restaurant, the serving of hot food, burns and scalds are unavoidable to some extent. There are many ways that you can receive a burn injury at a restaurant, a common holiday accident in Spain that any personal injury solicitor will be able to help you claim for.

Burns in a restaurant are most commonly caused by hot food or drink being spilt on one of the patrons. However, in some restaurants, such as those that allow diners to barbeque their own food, or have a naked flame keeping dishes hot, normal burns could occur. Treating a burn or scald takes the following steps:

  1. Stop the burning – i.e. remove the heath that is causing the burn.
  2. Remove restrictions – clothing, bag straps, watches, etc. that are in the area of the burn.
  3. Cool the burn – apply ice, colder water, or a cold pack to cool the burn and stop inflammation. For more serious burns, use only lukewarm water to cool the burn.
  4. Keep warm – if the victim has suffered a serious burn, find a blanket or other covering to keep them warm and to help with shock.
  5. Wrap the burn – use plastic wrap such as clingfilm to wrap the burn before you seek proper medical treatment.

If you have been burned or scalded in a restaurant while you were on holiday in Spain, Legal Expert can help you to claim the compensation your eligible for. Call us on the telephone number down in the last section of this guide so that we can help you start a claim today.

Slips, Trips, And Falls at A Restaurant in Spain

Slips, trips and falls are the most common types of accidents in the world, and the second most common in the UK after road traffic accidents. Therefore, a slip trip and fall is a very common reason to make a compensation claim in Spain. A slip, trip or fall in a restaurant can happen in many ways, such as:

  • Slipping on a floor where food, drinks, water or oil has been spilt, that has not been cleaned properly and has not been marked with a hazard sign as per EU regulations.
  • Tripping on damaged flooring, such as a frayed or torn carpet, cracked floor tiles, or warped wooden floorboards.
  • Falling down badly lit entrance stairs, or while exiting the restaurant into the carpark.

If you have been injured by a slip, trip or fall accident in a restaurant while you were on holiday in Spain, Legal Expert an get you the compensation that is rightfully yours. Call us at the number at the bottom of this page to find out how.

  • If you booked via a UK based package tour vendor – you have 3 years from the date of the event to make a claim.
  • If you booked your visit to Spain on your own – you have just 1 year from the date of the event to make a claim.
  • If you booked your flight to Spain privately – if you are flying into or out of Madrid Airport, Barcelona Airport, Palma de Mallorca Airport, and any other airport Spain, you would have up to 2 years from the date of the event to make a claim.
