Food Poisoning Lawyers
Food poisoning is an illness caused by food that has gone bad or is tainted. Every year, one in six Americans or 48 million people get sick as a result of food poisoning, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Texas Personal Injury Lawyers’ long and successful history of dealing with similar circumstances has resulted in a track record of success in helping clients obtain fair compensation for their suffering. We think negligent food producers and places that serve contaminated meals should be held accountable. Please contact Texas Personal Injury Lawyers for a free consultation and case evaluation if you or a loved one has been hurt as a result of a food-borne illness.
The Most Common Types Of Food Poisoning
The following are some of the most prevalent forms of food-borne illness that affect millions of Americans every year:
Campylobacter enteritis:This is a bacterial foodborne illness that results from improper slaughter or processing of meat that has not been fully cooked. You can get it by eating contaminated produce, milk, or water. Fever, aches, and pains, as well as an upset stomach, are some of the most common symptoms.
E. Coli:These germs can be found on leafy greens like lettuce or spinach that were improperly washed. Symptoms include bloody diarrhea, stomachache, and nausea. E. coli can also induce hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which can cause kidney damage.
Salmonella poisoning:Salmonellosis is an infection caused by Salmonella bacteria that, after eating raw or undercooked eggs, can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, fever, and stomach pain between 12 and 72 hours later. The illness lasts four to seven days in total. Diarrhea can be quite severe at times, necessitating the patient’s hospitalization.
Listeria:Listeriosis is a severe bacterial infection that can be contracted by eating contaminated foods such as fruits, meats, and cheeses. The elderly, newborns, expectant mothers, and those with compromised immune systems are most susceptible to the illness.
Hepatitis A:This is a liver-specific viral illness. It’s typically passed via food consumed by an infected individual. Food handled by someone who has not washed his or her hands properly after using the toilet might spread hepatitis A.
Norovirus:The virus is transmitted via food, water, or other ill persons. The virus causes your stomach and/or intestines to become irritated. Vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, and stomach discomfort are some of the most common symptoms.
Protecting Your Rights
Manufacturers, processors, and suppliers of food can be held responsible for injuries caused by their products. Restaurants that allow negligent workers to prepare, store, or serve meals might also be sued. Victims of food poisoning can seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, missed income, hospitalization, diagnostic fees, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Because these business entities are frequently difficult to deal with on a personal level, a food poisoning lawyer may be required.
