Nut allergies are among the most common, deadliest allergic reactions here in the UK which is why there are an extensive range of governmental guidelines in place to ensure allergic reactions to nuts are avoided. Though this is the case, upon occasion a member of the general public becomes subject to a nut related allergic reaction. Reactions of this nature tend to be outside the domestic environment such as restaurants, schools, hospitals and occasionally in foods which clearly specify a non-trace of nuts.
If you’ve suffered a nut-allergy reaction which wasn’t your fault; you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Tylers Solicitors today: the UK’s leading personal injury claims specialists.
