How We Prove A Food Contamination Case
A California food poisoning lawyer will seek to prove some or all of the below elements:
- Simultaneous illness of a group of people who eat the same food at the same time.
- All of these injured or sick people manifest classic food poisoning symptoms.
- Prompt investigation of the suspected food (i.e. salami, lettuce, peanuts).
- Microscopic examination of that food, which shows, for example, a staff infection, which correlates with the injury suffered by the injured group.
However, we recognize and have handled many cases where our clients have already recovered, and the food is not available for a bacteriological study, these cases then depend upon expert testimony. We have also done food poisoning cases caused by sanitation violations against a restaurant or a market.
Food Poisoning Symptoms
Many food-borne illnesses are especially dangerous to young children, the elderly, and others with weakened immune systems. Typical food poisoning symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
