Nationally Recognized Foodborne Illness Attorneys
Food poisoning (or foodborne illness) is the result of food contaminated with bacteria, parasites, viruses or other contaminants — such as poisons, chemicals and pesticides — that makes you or a loved one sick. Food poisoning symptoms include upset stomach, diarrhea, fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, headache, weakness and dehydration. The symptoms may appear several hours or several days after ingesting contaminated food.
For more than 65 years, the civil litigation attorneys of Spangenberg Shibley & Liber have handled complex medical/product issues like foodborne illness and food poisoning. Put us to work for you by contacting us now.
Proving a Food Poisoning Claim: How a Foodborne Illness Lawyer Works
To prove your claim, a Spangenberg food poisoning attorney will need to show:
- Fault: The food preparer or distributor caused the contamination (and if such contamination is a known risk, that the preparer did something wrong to increase that risk)
- Causation: The contamination caused you harm (described below)
- Damages: How you have been harmed by the contaminated food, from suffering to medical bills, lost wages to permanent disabilities, or even death
We do this by requesting records, investigating facilities, getting expert opinions from doctors, nurses, industry-specific experts like food producers and safety inspectors. Whether Campylobacter, Salmonella, E. coli, viruses, Listeria, toxins or parasites, we will investigate and prepare the case with the end goal of being ready and willing to go to trial on your behalf — and our opponents know it.
