What to Do if You Experience Food Poisoning

3 Things You Should Do After Getting Food Poisoning

Unfortunately, food poisoning is not uncommon. You could experience food poisoning when eating at a restaurant, purchasing tainted food from the grocery store, or eating provided meals at an event, conference, etc. Most food poisoning episodes don’t last more than a few days—but what happens when food poisoning is serious and creates lasting health problems and expenses?

Besides resting and laying low, be sure to do the following in the aftermath of an acute food poisoning incident:

  1. Seek medical attention: Having a doctor’s official notes and diagnoses handy can be particularly valuable if you end up needing to sue a restaurant, food distributor, or other person or entity for causing your illness.
  2. Record your damages: As your illness progresses, keep a log of any and all incurred expenses and losses related to your food poisoning. Be sure to note medical costs, total wages lost during recovery, and any other personal or financial damages you may experience.
  3. Connect with a food poisoning lawyer: You may not necessarily have a viable lawsuit if you get a stomach ache or have to take a day off from work because you ate some bad sushi. However, you may be able to take legal action if your food poisoning episode led to serious health complications, large medical expenses, and other calculable damages.
