Food Poisoning or food borne illness results from eating food contaminated with bacteria (or their toxins) or other pathogens such as parasites or viruses. The illnesses range from upset stomach to more serious symptoms, including diarrhea, fever, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and dehydration. Although most food borne infections are undiagnosed and unreported, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that every year about 76 million people in the United States become ill from pathogens in food. Of these, about 5,000 die.

If you have fallen ill because of a spoiled food product, either purchased from a grocery store or restaurant, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there are time limits within which you must commence suit.

The Williams Law Firm will evaluate your case free of charge. In addition, you will not pay any attorneyÂ’s fee unless we recover money for you. Please click on the free Online Case Assessment button to take advantage of this valuable service.

There are strict standards for food products and food safety, and those standards are not always met, leading to food poisoning. The Williams Law Firm will hold the negligent parties accountable if you become ill following consumption of food at home, on vacation, or at a restaurant. We will investigate the product purchased at a store or a restaurant if the illness happened following a meal. Your case does not have to make banner headlines on a nationwide basis, and food poisoning is not something to be taken lightly. It can cause permanent damage to you and sometimes death. Food poisoning symptoms can range from simple flu-like gastro-intestinal irritation--such as diarrhea and stomach ache--that may last only a short period to more serious conditions that require hospitalization.

Types of Food Poisoning:

  • Botulism
  • Campylobacter jejuni
  • E. coli
  • Hepatitis A
  • Listeria monocytogenes
  • Salmonella
