Can You Sue for Food Poisoning in California?
Food poisoning is a terrible experience. You may be out of work for days following your illness, and chances are high that you weren’t the only patron or consumer to develop food poisoning after consuming a particular food.
But, in order to sue for food poisoning in California, you must be able to prove that a particular food you ate was contaminated and that this contaminated food is what made you sick. Below, we go into further detail about when suing for food poisoning may be in your best interests and who could be liable for your illness.
When to Sue for Food Poisoning
Food poisoning can have a significant impact on your life. Whether you ate a restaurant that served contaminated food or purchased contaminated food at a store and came down with a serious illness, you may have suffered in more ways than one.
On top of having thousands of dollars in medical expenses, you may have had to take time off of work, find help caring for your children, and had to cope with the physical suffering of your illness. In cases such as these, it may be in your best interests to consider filing a personal injury lawsuit against the liable party.
