Minnesota’s Award-Winning Personal Injury Firm Butwinick Injury Law Has Helped Victims and Their Families for More Than 20 Years

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 personal injury lawyer at Butwinick Injury Law!

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

Our firm can work closely with the authorities to gather enough evidence and testimony to correctly establish the type and source of your food poisoning. Once it can be established who should be held responsible, we can vigorously seek a significant settlement on your behalf.

If you or a family member has suffered from food poisoning contact a Minneapolis personal injury attorney for a free case evaluation.
