Find Out If You Have a Food Poisoning Claim

Just about everyone has experienced some form of food poisoning in his or her lifetime. To say it is awful is an understatement. There are few things as painful as becoming ill from tainted food. But while many of have suffered through such pain, there are those who have needed more than just rest and plenty of fluids. Depending on the type of microbes ingested, some victims of food poisoning can face life-threatening conditions, or even death.

If you, or a family member, have recently been made ill by improperly handled food, you are not alone. The Center For Disease Control (CDC) estimates that nearly 130,000 people are hospitalized each year due to food poisoning. Of those, roughly 3,000 people die from their illness.

As a result, food manufactures, distributors, and handlers that sell disease ridden foods can be held legally accountable for foodborne illnesses and deaths through a product liability claim. While the types of compensation can vary, some of the more common types of damages covered in such claims can include:

  • Emergency medical treatment and transportation
  • Extended hospitalization and accommodations
  • Loss of wages and employment
  • Specialist and doctor visits
  • Future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death

What Are Some Common Types of Foodborne Germs?

As reported by the CDC, there are well over 250 different types of foodborne diseases. Aggressive bacteria strains are the cause for a majority of these diseases. Others are the result of viruses or parasites finding their way into unprepared meats and others are the result of toxic chemicals leaking into the supply chain. However, some germs tend to find their way into the spotlight more than others. The following list is just some of the usual suspects in foodborne illness claims:

  • E. Coli – a bacteria found in uncooked foods such as poultry and dairy
  • Listeria – another bacteria fond of raw foods such as cheese and certain meats
  • Shigella – a bacterium spread through person-to-person contact and unsanitary conditions
  • Norovirus – virus found in human stool and is passed via person-to-person contact
  • Salmonella – very common bacterium that is found in uncooked or raw foods like chicken or dairy

How Long Do I Have To Submit My Phoenix Foodborne Illness Claim?

Unfortunately, probably not as long as you would like. In the state of Arizona, all claims are subject to a statute of limitations. This means that you have a limited amount of time in which to file. Failing to do so can mean a complete forfeiture of your right to compensation. The sooner you are able to contact our Phoenix foodborne illness lawyers, the better your odds will be at securing a positive outcome. Breyer Law Offices, P.C. can be reached at (602) 267-1280.
