Atlanta Food Poisoning

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 1 in 6 Americans suffer from food poisoning every year. The symptoms can be severe, sometimes life-threatening. It's possible to hold responsible parties accountable, but it's not easy; your chances of success are far greater if you work with a respected Atlanta food poisoning lawyer

When Is Negligence Responsible?

A variety of circumstances can lead to food poisoning. Negligence often plays a key role, although it can be difficult to prove. Restaurants and other businesses involved in food production or preparation owe customers a duty of care. This means producing meals in safe and hygienic environments, and taking every step necessary to prevent the spread of foodborne illness. Unfortunately, many restaurants fail to uphold even the most basic hygienic standards. Common instances of negligence include:

  • Use of unclean equipment for food preparation or storage
  • Employees' failure to wash hands or wear gloves when preparing or serving food
  • Breach of implied warranty — serving food after its “best by” date

These and other instances of negligence may cause you or loved ones to contract serious illnesses from pathogens such as:

  • Listeria
  • Norovirus
  • Salmonella
  • E. Coli
  • Hepatitis A
  • Campylobacter

How a Food Poisoning Lawyer Can Help

Few businesses responsible for outbreaks of foodborne illnesses are held accountable. This lack of justice often stems from the inherent difficulties of proving liability. Victims must demonstrate not only that the responsible business failed to abide by established standards of care but also that the business in question — and not some other cause — caused the sickness.

Skilled food poisoning lawyers can lay the necessary legal groundwork by collecting extensive evidence or even linking your situation to a broader outbreak. With legal assistance, you may be able to obtain damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
