Filing a Lawsuit for Food Poisoning – Food Born Illness Claims

Most food born illness and food poisoning lawsuits are based on the legal doctrine of negligence. In order to prove negligence a victim will have to show that a vendor (manufacturers, distributor, or seller) of a food acted in an unreasonable fashion which caused the food to become contaminated by a harmful agent (i.e. virus, or bacteria). Steps to take if you have suffered food poisoning:
  1. Preserve the evidence: Carefully mark the item as a dangerous item not to be eaten or touched. Place in a freezer for safe keeping. It is important to preserve such evidence so that a link can be made between the food that has the active pathogen (bacteria) and your illness.
  2. Contact a medical health care professional immediately and seek treatment.
  3. Call your local county or state health department if the food commercially produced and sold at a store.
  4. Get in touch with a law firm providing legal assistance to individuals who have contracted a food born illness
Victims right to Compensation: Victims of food poisonings caused by the negligent or wrongful conduct of other are entitled to monetary compensation for all losses. Common avenues of recovery are based on
  • Medical expenses including hospitalization and medication costs
  • Cost of future medical assistance including rehabilitation care
  • Lost wages and loss of future income
  • Pain and suffering including mental trauma and PTSD
  • Punitive damage – possible where a defendant displays a wanton disregard (reckless behavior) for the life and health of others.
