Food poisoning claims could rise in Wales, body suggests

Instances of personal injury compensation claims on the grounds of food poisoning may be about to rise in one area of the UK in the near future, it has been suggested.

According to Wales Online, an organisation has insisted that schoolchildren in Wales may be at a greater risk of contracting such an illness because local authorities will not be forced to check hygiene in the toilets of such institutions.

Consumer Focus Wales - a statutory body aimed at securing fair deals for consumers in the nation - has said that the country's government has not implemented a major part of the South Wales E.coli public inquiry by not making sure this is the case.

Therefore, the news source added, the organisation states that youngsters are now at a higher risk of suffering from food poisoning, meaning that more claims for damages settlements may be made in the long run.
