Los Angeles Food Poisoning Trial Lawyers – We Get Results
Need Help After a Food-Caused Illness? Put Our Experience in Your Corner.
Restaurants, grocery stores, and other food preparers must follow a strict set of rules to keep everything they serve and sell free of dangerous bacteria or mold. When they cut corners or make mistakes, bacteria such as E. coli, listeria, and salmonella can cause widespread infection
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. The food might also be contaminated from poor hygiene on the supply end.
It can be difficult to determine who is responsible for your food poisoning, but with the help of our Los Angeles lawyers, you may be able to make a claim against the factory or restaurant that contributed to your illness.
Food Poisoning Is Preventable
More than 70 million cases of food poisoning are reported each year, according to the World Health Organization, and many are dangerous. In the U.S., around 128,000 people are hospitalized and 3,000 contract a fatal case of food poisoning.
As consumers, we cannot do much to prevent ourselves from becoming one of these victims. This is an unsettling thought for most. Bacteria is the leading cause of food poisoning, but illness can also be caused by viruses, parasites, molds, natural toxins, and contamination.
Common causes of food poisoning include:
- Food preparer has dirty hands or uses contaminated utensils
- Food left out or stored at improper temperatures
- Improperly washed food or cooking equipment
- Tainted water used for cleaning or food preparation
- Negligence on the part of distributors during processing
- Failure to recall contaminated products
Bacteria can be found everywhere. Without proper sanitation processes, foods can easily become contaminated and introduce dangerous bacteria or other substances into our bodies. 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.
