It is estimated that foodborne diseases cause approximately 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths in the United States each year. These are known as food-borne illnesses more commonly referred to as food poisoning. Mild to serious symptoms can occur including:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Upset stomach or abdominal cramping
As a result of your food poisoning, you may have sustained medical expenses, lost income, a reduction in your earning capacity, rehabilitation expenses as well as pain and suffering.
To properly assist you in obtaining justice, it may be necessary to consult with the local or state health departments, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and/or the National Institute of Health (NIH). A thorough review of the medical literature and consultation with experts may be needed.
