Can You Sue a Restaurant for Food Allergy?
You are more than entitled to sue a restaurant if you have suffered an allergic reaction to food as a result of staff negligence. Have you had an allergic reaction from a restaurant, café or takeaway? We could help you in claiming compensation.
Allergic reactions trigger thousands of hospital visits
The food standards agency estimate that around 5000 people every year attend hospital following an allergic reaction to food.
Allergen information is legally required for food businesses
Restaurants and food providers must provide sufficient information for customers who suffer food allergies. It is often very difficult to find out the exact ingredients of meals in restaurants so if you have a food allergy, you have to be very careful.
Unfortunately, it is often the case that restaurants, cafes and takeaways fail to display adequate allergy warnings or provide customers with food containing a recognised allergen.
Whilst customers do not have to make the restaurant aware of an allergy to one of the main 14 allergens, it is worrying that occasionally even when a customer makes the waiter aware of an allergy that this information is not given to the chef preparing the food.
