What's your case worth?

Food poisoning often is mild and lasts only a few hours; other times, symptoms are more severe and food poisoning victims face serious symptoms that sometimes land them in the hospital. If your food poisoning occurred because of another party’s negligence—often a food manufacturer, distributor, retailer, or restaurant—you could be eligible for compensation. A Miami food poisoning lawyer can evaluate your case and advise you on the best course of action for your circumstances.

When Should I Call a Miami Food Poisoning Lawyer?

Food poisoning can lead to lifelong medical problems when someone ingests contaminated food. If you’ve incurred medical expenses, missed work, or lost a loved one due to food poisoning, you should consult with a Miami food poisoning lawyer. Not all food poisoning occurs at restaurants or other establishments that serve food. Sometimes the groceries you buy at the store are contaminated, so you might also have a case if you suffered food poisoning after cooking a home meal. Regardless of the source of your illness, you should always call an attorney who can review your case and determine your eligibility for compensation.

What Are the Symptoms of Food Poisoning?

Those who suffer from food poisoning can experience a wide range of uncomfortable, sometimes painful symptoms. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the most common symptoms of
food poisoning include:

  • Upset stomach/nausea
  • Stomach cramps
  • Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Diarrhea

Common Causes of Food Poisoning

Different types of bacteria come from different sources, and some foods are more prone to contamination than others. Most food poisoning occurs because of bacteria, viruses, or parasites during processing, production, cooking, or storage. Specific causes of food poisoning include:

  • Failure to wash hands, utensils, and surfaces when preparing food
  • Cross-contamination when raw foods are kept next to ready-to-eat or prepared foods
  • Undercooked foods, especially meat and seafood
  • Failure to properly refrigerate perishable foods
  • Failure to properly thaw frozen foods
  • Parasites or bacteria from unpasteurized juices, ciders, and dairy products

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Food Poisoning Case?

If you choose to take legal action after suffering food poisoning, you could receive compensation for damages related to your illness. Common damages recovered by food poisoning victims include compensation for:

  • Medical expenses including ambulance service, emergency room treatment, diagnostic tests and scans, hospitalization, medication, and transportation costs to and from the doctor/hospital
  • Estimated future medical treatment costs if food poisoning leads to long-term complications that require ongoing care
  • Lost wages for time missed from work due to illness, treatment, and recovery
  • Estimated future lost wages if a rare case of severe food poisoning leads to a permanent disability that prevents someone from returning to work
  • Pain and suffering

If you lost a loved one because of food poisoning, you could be eligible to recover compensation for funeral expenses, burial costs, and loss of companionship. Your Miami food poisoning lawyer can review your wrongful death case and advise you on which damages apply to your situation.

Yes, you can sue for food poisoning in Florida under certain circumstances. When your food poisoning occurs because of negligence or intentional harm, Florida law permits you to bring a lawsuit to recover damages against the party responsible for your illness. Keep in mind that you need to take action quickly. Under Florida law, you have four years to sue for food poisoning. Waiting too long weakens your claim because it makes it difficult for your Miami food poisoning lawyer to investigate and gather solid evidence to support your claim.
It depends on the situation. Sometimes, hundreds or even thousands of people fall ill because a food manufacturer or processor puts contaminated food on the market. In these situations, proving food poisoning can be simple. Those who suffer from food poisoning after a bad meal at a restaurant, for example, sometimes have a more difficult time proving their case. Food poisoning attorneys investigate cases and look for evidence from security cameras, other patrons, employee statements, and other sources that offer proof of food poisoning.Most food poisoning cases stem from negligence. From a legal standpoint, you need to prove four elements of negligence to win your case or have the leverage to negotiate a settlement with an insurance company. The four elements of negligence as they relate to food poisoning claims include:
• Duty of care. Food processors, manufacturers, restaurants, etc., have a legal duty to provide food that is safe for public consumption to grocery shoppers and restaurant diners.
• Breach of duty. Mishandling food or serving food contaminated with parasites because of poor quality control is a breach of the duty of care towards the public.
• Harm. A food poisoning victim must suffer harm, often referred to as damages. This includes economic losses related to the illness, such as medical expenses and lost wages. Harm also includes the physical pain and suffering that someone who falls victim to food poisoning faces.
• Causation. The breach of duty must have caused the harm that someone experiences to prove food poisoning. Causation is often the most challenging aspect of proving negligence, making it crucial to have a skilled lawyer fighting in your corner.

Although an individual might be liable for food poisoning, most victims name a business as a defendant in their lawsuits. For example, a restaurant owner is responsible for training their employees and upholding quality standards, so ultimately, they are responsible for what their employees do. Liable parties vary among cases depending on the exact situation. Examples of types of businesses that could be liable in a food poisoning lawsuit include:
• Food producers/processors
• Food distributors/wholesalers
• Food retailers
• Restaurants/bars/cafés/coffee shops
