Understanding Legal Battles

After struggling for years to wrap my head around the legal drama in the news, I was faced with a pretty big challenge of my own. My son was accused of a crime that he swore he didn't commit, although I was a little less than convinced. However, after evaluating the facts, I could tell that he was telling the truth, so we hired a professional lawyer who could help us through the challenge of fighting the charges. The lawyer worked hard to make things right, and within a few short months, my son was in the clear. Read more about legal problems in this blog.

Suffering From Food Poisoning? Contact A Personal Injury Lawyer

If you experienced food poisoning after you consumed a meal at a local restaurant, call a personal injury lawyer today. Food poisoning is a serious health problem that can cause a host of symptoms, including vomiting and diarrhea. A personal injury attorney can investigate the restaurant in question and help you receive compensation for your illness. Learn more about food poisoning and how a personal injury lawyer can assist you with your claim below.

How Can Food Poison You?

When food contains chemicals, germs, and other dangerous substances, it becomes contaminated. The contaminated food leads to a medical condition known as food poisoning. Food poisoning can be mild enough to resolve on its own, or it can become severe enough to require immediate medical attention. 

Severe food poisoning causes a number of symptoms to occur, including vomiting and nausea. Some individuals may also experience severe diarrhea and stomach cramps. The symptoms can be worse in the elderly and in children. 

If your symptoms were severe enough to warrant a trip to the emergency room, consult a personal injury attorney now. 

How Can You File a Food Poisoning Claim?

Before an attorney takes your case or files a personal injury on your behalf, they must ensure you suffered from food poisoning and nothing else. Although food poisoning can cause the symptoms mentioned above, so can cold and flu viruses. An attorney will need to examine your emergency room records carefully before they can work on your behalf. 

If your medical records reveal a case of food poisoning, a lawyer will need to investigate the restaurant that caused your illness. The investigation helps determine whether or not the restaurant staff members handled the food properly before they served it to you.

The CDC, or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, requires restaurants and their workers to follow strict protocols in order to keep their food safe from foodborne pathogens. If the staff members at the restaurant you purchased and consumed food from didn't wash and prepare the food properly, they may be responsible for your illness. 

An attorney may also obtain additional evidence about the restaurant's unsafe practices through your state. If the restaurant received fines and violations in the past, your state may contain records of the actions. An attorney can use the records to help secure your food poisoning claim against the restaurant.
