Texas Contaminated Food Attorneys
Suffered from Foodborne Illness by Contaminated Food?
Foodborne illness, other health complications, injury, and death are all harsh realities of contaminated food caused by manufacturer, supplier, or distributor negligence. To help individuals and families overcome the emotional, physical, and financial difficulties that far too commonly come with contaminated food products, legal counsel and representation may be available to pursue a claim or lawsuit. The skilled Texas personal injury attorneys at Williams & Brown LLP have successfully handled a wide range of product liability cases, including those involving tainted food products. If you would like to know if you have a case, please call (888) 741-6200 for a no-cost consultation.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, when a food is mislabeled or may present a health hazard to consumers (due to contamination or foodborne illness outbreak), food producers may recall their products.
Legal Action for Compensation in Texas
There is no doubting the severity of contaminated food for consumers, especially children, the elderly, and individuals with compromised immune systems. A person may need to be hospitalized, have surgery, or take medication, just to name a few, as a consequence of consuming tainted food. In addition, medical care and treatment may last for months, if not years. What is more, medical expenses can sometimes be just the tip of the iceberg.
A person’s health and body may never be the same again after the damage of food contamination, depending on whether the food product was tainted with bacteria, chemicals, a contagious disease, sharp objects, or more. Loss of income and benefits from the inability to work during recovery can create serious issues for an individual and his or her family. In the most serious cases, wrongful death of a primary wage earner can leave families without financial resources.
A Team Effort
Working with a legal team that has years of experience in civil law often brings individuals peace of mind and hope for their case. Claims and lawsuits involving contaminated food can be stressful, but knowing you are supported and your rights are being protected can go a long way in reducing strain.
You may work with your attorney to highlight the ways in which your life has been affected by the contaminated food product. While no two cases are alike, witness testimony and medical evidence may strengthen your case. Insurance companies are often obstacles in that they work to protect their bottom line rather than helping claimants get the full restitution they are entitled to recover.
As you talk with your lawyer, it is important to remember that taking care of yourself is a priority. Your lawyer may even be able to handle the insurance companies for you while you focus on recovering or caring for your family.
