Food Poisoning

Food Poisoning Attorney in Minneapolis

Do I Have a Claim?

Every food poisoning case is unique and can have different results. If you have become ill after eating or drinking, suffered nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or cramping, you may have suffered from food poisoning. Symptoms from eating contaminated food or drink usually appear rapidly but can sometime take as long as 48 hours.

Some cases only affect a single person and others may involve a small or large group who were all exposed to the same source of contamination. Some people suffer only mild symptoms and recover quickly but others can become seriously ill or even die from certain contaminates.

If you or a loved one has suffered from food poisoning due to food or drink served at a restaurant or through food purchased from a store or retailer, you should speak to a Minneapolis food poisoning lawyer at Butwinick Injury Law

How Long Does it Take Food Poisoning to Set In?

In most cases, the onset symptoms of food poisoning begin 1-2 days after eating the contaminated food. Some people have reported having symptoms of food poisoning hours after eating, with nausea and gastrointestinal distress as some of the first symptoms. In some cases, however, the symptoms of food poisoning are extreme and may lead to severe symptoms that require medical attention.

What to Do if You Have Food Poisoning

Anyone who experiences severe symptoms such as abdominal cramping, bloody stools, dehydration or uncontrolled vomiting should seek immediate emergency medical attention.

The most common types of food poisoning include:

  • E. coli
  • Botulism
  • Campylobacter
  • Salmonella
  • Shigella

When a victim of food poisoning requires hospitalization or emergency medical attention, they likely have the right to seek a settlement.

You may be entitled to monetary damages including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical bills

How Long Does it Take to Recover from Food Poisoning?

Depending on what caused your food poisoning, it could take anywhere from a few hours to ten or more days to recover. Remember, if you have any severe symptoms, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
