Food Poisoning in Restaurants & Grocery Stores
Restaurants and grocery stores are subject to strict federal and state regulations. Despite these, incidents of food poisoning in restaurants and from foods purchased at grocery stores continue to happen – many on a very large scale. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), over 76 million cases of foodborne illnesses occur each year in the United States. These cases are related to many different kinds of pathogens and bacteria, including E. Coli and salmonella. Further, there are certain antibiotic and drug-resistant salmonella strains which are very problematic and on the increase.
Sadly, the most affected by food poisoning are already some of society’s most vulnerable: children and the elderly, whose bodies are not well equipped for the tough job of fighting off foodborne illnesses.
If you have suffered a serious illness as a result of the food you ate at a restaurant – or purchased from a grocery store – it is important to talk with a lawyer about protecting your rights. A lawyer can give you guidance, including preserving evidence such as the product that poisoned you.
Exposure to Lead
Our lawyers can also represent clients – adults, children and their families – who have suffered from lead exposure. Exposure is usually due to peeling lead-based paint found in older apartments. Renters expect their landlords to take measures to protect them, and they should. Landlords have a duty to warn and protect renters from exposure to lead poisoning. Often, the simple step of removing peeling or chipping paint is enough to prevent a disaster.
Most lead poisoning comes from low levels of exposure to lead over a long period of time. The central nervous system, digestive tract and urinary tract are most greatly affected, and chronic exposure can lead to a wide range of symptoms, including:
- Swelling of the brain
- Learning problems in children
- Memory loss
- Muscle weakness
