Symptoms & Complications of Food Poisoning

More than 300,000 people require hospitalization and over 5,000 people per year die as a result of foodborne illnesses and food poisoning. Children, elderly, pregnant women, those with a compromised immune system or liver disease, are the most likely to be affected by food poisoning. The most common pathogens and bacteria that lead to illness are E.Coli, Salmonella, Botulism, Shigella, and Hepatitis A.

Symptoms of food poisoning include:

  • Dehydration
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Vomiting

Many times symptoms will disappear with time, but foodborne illness can result in serious and permanent injuries, such as:

  • Pregnant mothers can experience complications with the fetus
  • Severe dehydration may require hospitalization
  • Major organs may shut down
  • Reactive Arthritis
  • Wrongful Death

Who is Responsible for Food Poisoning?

In a case of suspected food poisoning, there are many potential defendants along the food chain who may be responsible for your injuries. It is important to work with a food poisoning attorney in Cranston early in the process to help identify the responsible parties.

Producers are liable for injuries sustained if they place an unsafe food product on the market. Similarly, restaurants have an obligation to preserve and prepare food in a sanitary manner to eliminate any bacteria that may be present in the food.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a foodborne illness, contact our office at (401) 244-7433 immediately for a free consultation.

Ceiling Lamp The Edge You Need

When harmed by another's negligence, the responsible party immediately needs to be held accountable for their actions.

Nothing stops the Law Office of Joseph Lamy from pursuing justice on your behalf when you entrust us to see your claim through.
