Food Poisoning Litigation
Consult with a Los Angeles Product Liability Attorney
When a person goes to the store or restaurant, they expect to buy food
that is safe and free of bacteria or mold. Unfortunately, bacteria such
as E. coli or salmonella can find a way to creep into food preparation.
This can happen due to poor handling or improper preparation procedures.
When customers go to a restaurant, food poisoning can occur if a food
handler fails to wash their hands before preparing food or if the food
was originally contaminated from the supplier.
It can be difficult to lay blame on the cause of your food poisoning, but
with the help of a Los Angeles product liability lawyer, you may be able
to make a claim against the factory or restaurant that contributed to
Arguing for Your Legal Rights
More than 70 million cases of food poisoning are reported each year, according
to the World Health Organization, and the numbers of hospitalizations
and deaths are in the thousands. This is an unsettling thought for most.
Bacteria is the leading cause of food poisoning, and there are many reasons
why. Because not all bacteria is dangerous, sometimes mishandling can
very well be to blame for food poisoning cases.
These are other common causes of food poisoning, including:
- Food preparer has dirty hands or uses contaminated utensils
- Food left out or kept at improper temperatures
- Improperly washed food or utensils
- Using tainted water for cleaning or food preparation
- Negligence on the part of manufacturers during processing
- Food suppliers failed to recall products
Bacteria can be found everywhere. It is in all food, utensils, food preparation
work surfaces, and exists all over a person's home. However, without
proper care or sanitation practices, bacteria can become out of hand and
cause a slew of illnesses. Get in touch with our firm immediately to litigate
against the responsible parties if you believe your sickness was due to
consuming improperly handled food.
