Louisville Food-borne Illness Attorneys

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identify a food-borne illness as an illness that is caused by consuming contaminated foods or drinks. While this contamination can take place in a number of ways, it is often the result of improper storage or contamination in the manufacturing process, something that is usually easily preventable. Sadly, due to the negligence of food manufacturers and distributers (i.e. restaurants, grocery stores, etc.), innocent people are all too often the victims of painful and unwanted food-borne illnesses. The effects of such an illness can be physically traumatic and might cause vomiting, infection, dehydration, and more.

Our Louisville attorneys at the Sampson Law Firm know suffering from a food-borne illness can be extremely difficult and could cause physical, emotional, and financial problems. Fortunately, many victims are able to get support after suffering through such an ordeal by taking legal action against the party responsible for the contaminated food or beverage.

Common Types of Food-borne Illnesses

There are dozens of food-borne illnesses as listed by the CDC. Some of the most common that affect people in the U.S. include:

  • Norovirus
  • Salmonella
  • Clostridium perfringens
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • E. coli

These food-borne illnesses can all have devastating physical effects on someone who suffers from them. Subsequently, financial problems might arise as well, due to the need to pay for medical treatment for the illness in question or from losing wages as a result of missing work.
