Gluten Poisoning Claims
A person who has been told that a meal or a product is gluten free which then it turns out not to be has a claim for gluten poisoning damages and compensation against the person who supplied the food. It is vital that the person affected seeks immediate legal advice if they wish to bring a claim as gathering the evidence to prove the allegation is the critical part.
If you are gluten intolerant and have bought a product which claimed to be gluten free, or had a meal at a restaurant where the food served was said to be gluten free, and become ill then you may be able to claim for gluten poisoning.
The big problem for people who suffer from reaction to Gluten (the condition is known medically as Ceoliac Intolerance) is convincing people how serious their condition is. Many simply see sufferers as fussy or faddy eaters, or worse that they have such a restricted diet as a matter of choice or lifestyle.
The reality is that it is a serious medical condition that needs to be controlled by strict monitoring of diet in the same way other conditions are controlled by medication.
To someone who suffers from the condition eating even the slightest amount of food contaminated with gluten can – and most often does – cause a severe reaction. This can range from disabling cramps and sickness and vomiting, to more long term anaemia and other chronic bowel and stomach conditions.
