Negligence and Food Poisoning

Negligence and Food Poisoning

Food poisoning occurs when people consume food containing harmful bacteria, parasites, viruses, or toxic chemicals. The symptoms can vary widely, from short-lasting nausea and gastrointestinal problems to life-threatening medical emergencies. Food poisoning is almost always preventable with knowledge and foresight, yet continues to be a very common problem across South Carolina and the US.

If you or a loved one has suffered from food poisoning due to someone else’s negligent behavior, you may be eligible for financial compensation. The experienced Charleston food poisoning lawyers at the Steinberg Law Firm can inform you of your grounds for legal action and the steps to take next. Call us today at 843-720-2800.

Any company that manufacturers, ships, prepares, or sells food and related products needs to be aware of the dangers of food poisoning. It is their responsibility to protect consumers from bacteria and other toxins in the products they buy. Unfortunately, there are many different mistakes food industry workers can make that may have severe consequences for consumers.

You may want to speak with a Charleston food poisoning attorney about filing a legal claim if you have suffered from a mistake like:

  • Restaurants or stores selling food past its expiration date
  • Food containers made with lead or other hazardous materials
  • Businesses that fail to properly store and refrigerate food products
  • Unhygienic food preparation (dirty kitchen, workers who do not wash their hands, etc)
  • Manufacturers that allow food to become contaminated during production or shipping

If your claim is successful, you could receive compensation for your medical bills, missed work, pain and suffering, and possibly more.
