Obtaining an Experienced Attorney in New York

It is important that you document as many details related to your foodborne illness as possible, including any medical care received. You must also notify manager at the food retailer. This evidence will be crucial in proving the connection between the source of the foodborne illness and your contraction of the disease. Foodborne illness cases are often complex, as it can be very hard to substantiate both the existence of a foodborne pathogen, and the source of that pathogen. Working with experts throughout the claims process, including scientists who can test food samples, is often necessary.

When you hire our personal injury law firm, we will begin working on your case immediately. Our job during the process is to build a case that proves:

  • Food was contaminated by a foodborne pathogen/bacteria;
  • The contamination of the food caused your illnesses and any related losses (medical bills, lost wages, pain);
  • The contamination is directly linked to the actions of a supplier, grower, distributor, retailer, etc.

We will highlight the preventable nature of your foodborne illness and subsequent physical, mental, or financial harm, and prove that the defendant should be held liable for your losses. Our goal is to assist you in obtaining the full value of your losses.
