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.
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.
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.
Neurological and behavioural symptoms:
Eye and skin symptoms:
Other general symptoms:
It’s important to note that some poisons may not immediately cause symptoms, and their effects could be delayed. Most people admitted to hospital because of poisoning will recover – early diagnosis and appropriate treatment, typically with antibiotics, are crucial for a successful recovery.
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.
