BBC News have reported on a new E. Coli outbreak at the Chrysalis Day Nursery in Northwich, which has so far affected 2 children who have been taken to Leighton Hospital. It is understood that a total of seven children and three family members have shown symptoms relating to the infection.

Fieldfisher have had extensive dealings with e-coli cases and the potential devastating consequences. It was only at the start of May that we saw a resolution to the cases that resulted from the E. Coli outbreak at Godstone Farm, which resulted in some 93 people being exposed to the bacteria. Fieldfisher fought for substantial settlements for all children and, importantly, settled the cases for the most seriously injured hildren on a provisional basis which allows them to return to court should they suffer further illness and in particular renal failure.

If you have been affected by this outbreak and would like to have a discussion about how we can help please contact Jill Greenfield or Jennifer Bradley.
