Food Liability Attorney in Louisville, Kentucky
According to the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), food poisoning and other foodborne illnesses affect about 48 million Americans each year. In fact, the CDC estimates that approximately 1 in 6 Americans gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases each year.
Food poisoning and food-related illnesses can result in a number of symptoms, including cramping, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, dehydration, weakness, and fatigue. Frustratingly, the weakest members of society, such as the elderly, infants, and people with already weakened immune systems, are typically at the greatest risk of developing complications from foodborne illness.
Food poisoning and other food injuries are caused by pathogens and contamination, which can occur at a number of sources for a number of reasons. Inadequate safety measures at a manufacturing facility and unsanitary food preparation techniques at a restaurant are common causes of foodborne illnesses. If a food-related illness is caused by the negligence of a food manufacturer or provider, you may be entitled to financial compensation in a personal injury or product liability lawsuit.

Foodborne illness and product liability laws
Kentucky imposes strict product liability laws, which means that a food manufacturer can be held liable for injuries caused by a contaminated food product if you can show that the food was contaminated when it left the manufacturer’s possession and the food contamination caused your injuries.
Proving that an illness or injury was caused by contaminated food can be challenging, however, and detailed factual information related to the medical, microbiological, and food safety fields is often required. Accordingly, it is important to get the help of a skilled Kentucky food-related illness lawyer to guide you through the process and advocate on your behalf. The Louisville food liability law firm of The Haden Law Office has considerable experience handling food liability cases and the legal complexities they involve.
