Food Poisoning? Know Your Rights.

What Should You Do If You Fall Victim To Food Poisoning?

Some of you may have read the recent news articles about the Starbucks breakfast sandwich recalls due to possible Listeria Contamination. Sandwiches from over 250 stores were recalled out of an "abundance of caution," but that doesn't mean that other corporations take as much care with their handling of matters like these.

While the majority of these recalls were done outside of North Carolina, it doesn't mean that you shouldn't be informed about your rights if you get food poisoning.

In North Carolina, if you suspect that you've contracted an illness from food that you bought from a third party, there are three things that you'll need to prove. Fault, Causation, and the Damages. These may seem pretty straight-forward, but there's quite a bit more to it than that.

Had you contracted Listeria from eating a breakfast sandwich from a giant corporation or even a smaller company, you shouldn't have to foot those medical bills, who's going to compensate you for the time you missed at work? When people buy food at a restaurant or other vendor, they have the expectation that they aren't going to get sick. That's a reasonable expectation to have!

We've put together a more comprehensive explanation of your rights if you expect that you've contracted food poisoning.

If you are pretty sure that you or a loved one has contracted food poisoning please give us a call at 919-297-2372 or contact us One of our staff members will be more than happy to discuss your case with you.
