Poisoning Compensation Claims Solicitors

Poisoning incidents can have an immense physical and emotional toll on individuals and their families. If you or a loved one have suffered due to poisoning, whether from contaminated food, harmful chemicals, or carbon monoxide exposure, Brian Barr Solicitors are here to advocate for your rights.


What are some common poisoning claims?

At Brian Barr Solicitors our dedicated team can represent you or your loved ones with regard to various types of poisoning claims, including:

Carbon monoxide: Carbon monoxide can be hard to detect, as it’s odorless and invisible. However, inhaling this gas can have very serious effects. UK homes are required to have carbon monoxide detectors in every room, but many don’t, or have poorly maintained sensors. Carbon monoxide poisoning can especially affect those with chronic health conditions, children, and older people. If you have suffered consequences to your health because of carbon monoxide poisoning, we may be able to help you make a poisoning compensation claim.

Food poisoning: Contaminated food can turn a simple meal into a distressing ordeal as accidents caused by unsafe food handling practices can lead to severe illnesses. Whether it’s a restaurant, food manufacturer, or distributor, our experienced solicitors will diligently investigate the source of contamination and hold responsible parties accountable.

Chemical exposure: Accidental exposure to hazardous chemicals can result in long-lasting health problems. From workplaces to public spaces, we can handle complex chemical exposure cases and will fight to secure the compensation you deserve.

Legionnaires’ poisoning: Legionnaires’ is a severe form of bacterial pneumonia caused by Legionella pneumophila. This bacterium is commonly found in water sources, such as natural freshwater and human-made water systems, like hot tubs, plumbing, and air conditioning systems. Individuals with weakened immune systems, older adults, and those with underlying health conditions are at a higher risk of developing Legionnaires’ disease if exposed to the bacteria, and experiencing severe symptoms.

What are the symptoms of poisoning?

The symptoms of poisoning can vary. Factors that can affect the type and severity of symptoms can be the amount of toxic substance absorbed, the type of substance, and the health condition of the individual. While some types of poison may only lead to mild symptoms, especially in low dosage, some can be deadly.

Gastrointestinal symptoms:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Abdominal pain or cramps
  • Loss of appetite

However in serious cases, poisoning can lead to brain damage, a coma, or death. Brian Barr Solicitors are committed to helping you navigate the complexities of poisoning claims, whether at home, in public or through a workplace accident. We believe in justice and fair compensation, allowing you to focus on healing and rebuilding your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is why seeking the advice of specialist poisoning solicitors is so crucial. At Brian Barr Solicitors we understand how deep and complex the impact of a poisoning injury can be, and can guide you and support you to get the compensation you deserve. Some of the things we can include in your poisoning claim are:

  • Medical expenses: Poisoning incidents often require medical attention, ranging from emergency care to ongoing treatments and therapies. The costs associated with private hospital stays, medications, and specialised treatments can quickly accumulate, burdening you with unforeseen bills.
  • Lost income: The aftermath of a poisoning incident may force you to take time off work to focus on your recovery. This ultimately translates to lost wages and potential future earning capacity, making it even more challenging to cope with financial obligations.
  • Rehabilitation costs: Unfortunately, severe poisoning cases can sometimes require extended long-term care and rehabilitation. Expenses related to physical and mental therapy, support, and health monitoring quickly add up, and you should include them in a compensation claim for poisoning.
  • Pain and suffering: As well as the financial toll of poisoning incidents, the emotional distress and diminished quality of life resulting from a poisoning incident are immeasurable. Compensation isn’t just about covering tangible costs; it’s also about acknowledging and addressing the intangible pain and suffering you’ve endured.
