Food Poisoning - Foodborne Illness
If you have experienced severe symptoms of a foodborne illness such as diarrhea, abdominal cramping, fever, headache, vomiting, severe exhaustion, and blood or pus in the stools, and have suffered a long-lasting or life-threatening illness resulting from food poisoning, you may have the legal right to obtain compensation. Food Poisoning accidents can result in serious injuries or death particularly in the very young, the very old, and people with certain diseases and conditions. If the accident was caused by human error, someone's negligence, a hazard or a dangerous condition, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, loss of wages and other losses.
According to the American Medical Association's publication: Diagnosis and Management of Foodborne Illnesses: A Primer for Physicians and Other Health Care Professionals, it is estimated that each year in the United States, 76 million people get sick, more than 300,000 are hospitalized, and 5,000 die as a result of foodborne illnesses, primarily the very young, elderly, and those with weakened immune systems.
