Food Poisoning E. Coli Lawyer

One out of six Americans suffers from food poisoning—such as foodborne bacterial infections like Escherichia coli (or E. coli)—each year. Over 3,000 of those food-related illnesses tragically end in death. Food poisoning can lead to life-altering or even life-threatening consequences for those victims who ingest the bacteria-ridden foods. Despite that fact, many food distributors continue to operate with careless negligence regarding food safety and sanitation and can subsequently endanger the lives of many Americans. 

If you or someone you love has become ill as the result of unsafe food, it is imperative to act quickly—first, to seek medical treatment, and second, to hold the guilty parties accountable and receive the compensation you deserve. When the unthinkable happens, you need to know that the law firm you hire will fight tirelessly to help you get back on your feet and back to what matters most.

  • What Are the Signs of E. Coli?

    When it comes to common cases of food poisoning, some individuals may be diagnosed with E. coli. While most are able to recover within five to seven days due to milder strains, there are other cases where an infection may lead to severe or even life-threatening situations. Most victims infected with E. coli. will start feeling sick three to four days after eating or drinking something that contains the bacteria. However, symptoms can begin anywhere from one to ten days after exposure. E. coli infections vary from person to person, but most common symptoms often include fever, severe stomach cramps, bloody diarrhea, and vomiting. 
    Victims  may often contract E. coli from the following foods:

    • Unpasteurized milk and juice
    • Undercooked or raw ground beef
    • Raw vegetables
    • Raw sprouts 
    • Contaminated water

    If you have experienced severe dehydration or diarrhea symptoms lasting longer than three days, seek immediate medical attention. Along with treatment, your doctor may serve as a credible source of evidence when pursuing a food poisoning lawsuit.
