Food poisoning can be a very unpleasant experience for anyone. It can also turn into a serious or fatal condition, especially for individuals with compromised immune systems, the elderly and the young. If you or a loved one has encountered a foodborne illness, you want to work with a law firm that you can trust and who has experience helping individuals and families across Cary with their personal injury case. Ledbetter & Titsworth is that law firm.
Due to the greed and negligence of some companies in the food business, sometimes corners are cut and food is not properly manufactured, processed, packaged or delivered, which can cause pathogens (bacteria, viruses or parasites) in the food we eat. If you or a loved one has contracted a foodborne illness from a consumer product in Cary, call our food poisoning attorneys.
How We Prove a Cary Food Poisoning Claim
If suspected of manufacturing or distributing contaminated food, food companies will do everything they can to avoid paying for your medical bills, lost time from work, pain, suffering and long-term health effects. The personal injury lawyers at Ledbetter & Titsworth can help.
In order to make a successful food poisoning claim, an individual under our system of law must be able to prove the following:
- Fault – the food seller/processor was at fault with regard to food processing, preparation, storage or handling.
- Causation – the fault of the seller or processor caused the food to become contaminated and that the contaminated food actually caused the illness.
- Damages – the harms and losses suffered by the victim as a result of consuming the contaminated food.
Food poisoning lawsuits are complex and very scientific. Depending on the case, you are going to want to work with a lawyer that has access to microbiologists and epidemiologists that may be needed as expert witnesses and who has the legal and scientific knowledge to handle all of the scientific evidence. Our food poisoning lawyers have handled a number of food poisoning cases and have the knowledge and expertise to get you the outcome you desire.
