Allergic reaction compensation claims

If you have suffered an allergic reaction caused by someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to seek a food allergy compensation claim for the harm you've endured.

According to a research study conducted by Allergy UK in 2021, allergies profoundly impact the lives of up to 21 million people in the UK. Shockingly, between 5 and 8 percent of children in the country live with a food allergy, making it an increasingly prevalent concern.

Unfortunately, hospital admissions related to food allergies are on the rise, often due to restaurants and takeaways neglecting essential food safety procedures.

What is a food allergy reaction?

An allergic reaction to food occurs when your body's immune system responds inappropriately to a food substance that is typically harmless. For individuals with food allergies, their immune system mistakenly identifies certain foods as threats, triggering a cascade of reactions that can range from mild discomfort to severe and life-threatening symptoms.

If you've suffered an allergic reaction due to someone else's negligence, such as improper food labelling or contamination, you have the right to pursue compensation. Whether the incident occurred at a restaurant, takeaway, or any other establishment, you shouldn't have to bear the physical and emotional burden alone.

Symptoms of allergic reactions to food

Common food allergy symptoms include:
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing and shortness of breath
  • Runny nose
  • Swelling
  • Rash
  • Itchy eyes, ears, lips, throat and mouth
  • Symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea
  • Difficulty swallowing

Common Types of Food Allergies?

The most frequent triggers of food allergies are:
  • Nuts
  • Fish and shellfish
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Cereals containing gluten
  • Food Providers and Allergenic Ingredients

Food providers have a legal obligation to disclose information about allergenic ingredients in their products. Failure to do so may be deemed negligent, leading to potential claims for compensation if an allergic reaction occurs.
