Horse meat scandal: being more careful of what we are eating

Who are BL Claims Solicitors

BL Claims Solicitors specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and travel claims, providing our clients with hands-on support, nationally.

We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset

However, a lot of people love horses and keep them and could not possibly think of eating them.  We all choose what we eat and therefore the thought of this choice being taken away from us and the food disguised as something that it is not is very disturbing especially when it has been found in brands we have learnt to trust.

Unfortunately, eating horse in itself is not classed as food poisoning and unless you have suffered a deep psychological reaction to eating horse meat you will not be able to claim any compensation.

Hopefully this scandal will make us more careful of  what we are eating. However, if you do suffer from any food poisoning and require advice we are always here to listen and see how we can assist you.
