Click the claim button below to make a poisoning claim, or should you require advice and assistance, call our free helpline now on 0800 195 95 90 to talk to one of our expert solicitors.

With many years of experience in claims of this type, we have previously assisted clients with poisoning claims that include food poisoning, carbon monoxide and exposure to hazardous substances.


Food poisoning

Information from the Food Standards Agency suggests that over 4 million cases of food poisoning are reported each year. At Smith Jones, we have successfully helped numerous clients with claims of this type, many of which previously had their cases turned away by other firms.

If you believe you have suffered from food poisoning following neglected health and safety procedures, we may be able to help you claim for compensation. Premises’ providing food to the public must comply with the Food Standards Agency’s strict guidelines, and if these are not adhered to, they may be liable for any illness caused.

During 2014/15, we secured an average of over £11,500 compensation for our clients.2

Carbon monoxide poisoning

Carbon monoxide poisoning affects people in many different ways and can cause severe illness. As you cannot see, smell or taste carbon monoxide gas, you can be poisoned without your knowledge. Certain appliances in the home such as cookers, boilers, gas fires, and central heating systems should be installed and maintained by a qualified gas engineer to avoid the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in your home. You may also be exposed to carbon monoxide at work, or whilst on holiday. If you have been exposed to this dangerous gas due to the negligence of another, you may be able to make a poisoning claim and be entitled to compensation.

In 2013/14, 100% of our clients told us that they were satisfied with our service, with 73% rating us as ‘outstanding’.4

If you have been affected by food or carbon monoxide poisoning, you can see what compensation you are entitled to by using our compensation calculator.
