Food Poisoning Injuries are Often Serious

Causes of Food Poisoning

Paulozzi Co. LPA is a top rated personal injury firm that has represented food poisoning victims for over 25 years. Food poisoning can be contracted from consuming both food and beverages. It can occur in a home kitchen, at a restaurant or a fast food establishment. It can occur in both cooked, packaged or raw foods. Food borne sicknesses can be caused by a wide range of bacterial and viral pathogens, parasites, chemicals, and toxins. In the simplest of terms, food poisoning is the result of food being contaminated. Contaminants can be introduced to the food in any number of manners, including poor hygiene of food handlers, food left at room temperature, use of utensils that have not been sterilized, exposure to contaminants in the growing process or other stages of food processing.  Local health departments often are not aware of the contaminated and dirty kitchens with health code violations which are used to prepare one’s food.

Contamination in the Supply Chain

Food can also be contaminated or tainted before it even gets to the restaurant or grocery story.  In the United States, there are federal regulations that govern the standards that need to be met in the production and delivery of our food. These standards are enforced through inspections by regulators. From time to time those standards are not met, either whether intentional or inadvertent. This often results in contamination of food which causes poisoning of consumers.  When our food supply makes us sick, the responsible party needs to be held accountable for their failure.

You Deserve Justice

You deserve fair compensation, whether you became sick after eating at home, in a restaurant or somewhere else.
