Food Poisoning Cases
Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer
Food poisoning occurs when a person eats contaminated food. This can include food that contains toxins, parasites, bacteria or viruses. The contamination often takes place during the food's manufacturing. Poisoning can also occur with foods that have been improperly stored or left out too long. If you have been poisoned by a manufacturer's food, or have gotten sick from food you have eaten at a restaurant, contact an attorney to find out if you qualify for personal injury
compensation. Food manufacturers have a responsibility to properly prepare their products; this includes adhering to strict laws and guidelines regarding food processing. If a food manufacturer's negligence or carelessness causes poisoning, they may be liable for monetary damages.
