Food Poisoning

Posted by attorney Jared Everton

One of the oldest product liability claims is a claim against a food provider for food poisoning. The food may be tainted at production stage or anywhere along the line until it is served as a meal. Therefore, any and all of those entities may be liable for providing tainted food. Damages can be significant. Recently, I spoke with an individual whose salmonella poisoning landed him in the hospital for one week. The medical bills exceeded $50,000. The difficulty in a food poisoning case is to identify who is at fault. Should you or a loved one suffer from food poisoning, you should immidiately file a complaint to document the injury. Should the location have more than one complaint, you will more easily establish who is liable for your injuries. Contact a Phoenix injury attorney to learn more about pursuing legal action for food poisoning.
