Food poisoning is a common issue and there are times when it can make you quite sick. If you experience this problem, you may be wondering if it is possible for you to get compensated due to the suffering that you experience as a result. There are things that you should know about food poisoning claims and we will discuss those in this article. You can also pick up the phone and contact Williams & Javellana, LLP for more information about the possible case.

There are a number of issues that need to be considered in a food poisoning case, including any proof that may be available about the food poisoning, as well as who may be sued. Depending on the facts of a particular case, certain causes of actions may be asserted, which are further discussed below.

Negligence – There may be times when the manufacturer of the food that cause food poisoning was negligent, resulting in your illness. This may also be true in the case of somebody who supplied you the food that was contaminated and as a result, you got sick. It is necessary to prove negligence, and this is typically done by showing that the defendant failed to exercise reasonable care when manufacturing, handling, preparing, or distributing the food

Product Liability – In many cases, it is going to be a matter of strict product liability and will be covered under state law. These laws relieve you of the necessity of showing that the manufacturer or supplier of the food was negligent. As a result, you may be entitled to compensation even if the manufacturer or supplier had exercised reasonable care.

Breach of Warranties – There are minimum standards that are established on products that may vary from state to state. Some of these are stated specifically while others may be implied. If the contaminated food that made you sick constitutes a breach of warrant, it is a violation that may result in a successful lawsuit.

If you have experienced any illness from contaminated food, it is very important that you contact Williams & Javellana, LLP so that the necessary information can be compiled. Regardless of the type of negligence that resulted in your food poisoning, it is important for it to be proven properly so that the case can proceed. From that point, it may either settle out of court or it can end up going into court. In either case, you can trust the fact that Williams & Javellana, LLP will handle your case aggressively.

Client Testimonials
Gold standard for professionalism and ethics. Extremely knowledgeable and proficient in handling complex cases. Attorney Javellana took painstaking hours building a civil case, (co-ownership/property rights) and then he presented overwhelming evidence at trial. Mr. Javellana was on point for 3 days at trial where he tactfully asserted a powerful presence in the courtroom and systematically picked apart the defendents and he was quick to respond to the dirty trickery of the defense attorney with undisputable legal arguments. As a result of Mr. Javellana's detailed and powerful representation, the opposing side had no chance. Mr. Javellana was extremely organized and detail oriented throughout. Mr. Javellana won the case across multiple points and most impressively he obtained a permanent injunction against the opposing party. Additionally, Mr. Javellana, represented me with two other cases where his professionalism and his relentless tactical drive continued with successful results. I highly recommend Mr. Javellana. J.M
