Unsafe Food

Food Poisoning Attorneys in Los Angeles, CA

Suffering the effects of unsafe food?

When we purchase food from a grocery store or a restaurant, we expect that it will be properly prepared and safe for us to eat. When food safety standards are overlooked at any point in the process, however, it can result in serious harm to those who consume the tainted food. Any company that produces, processes or serves tainted foods can be held accountable for the damage they cause in a personal injury lawsuit.

Biren Law Group has extensive experience in handling cases involving injuries resulting from the consumption of adulterated foods. We can help you hold those responsible for selling the adulterated food accountable for the harm you sustained. Our Los Angeles food poisoning lawyers have created techniques designed to handle the most complex of product liability cases and obtain maximum compensation for our clients.

Determining Liability for Tainted Food

Biren Law Group has extensive experience in proving liability in adulterated food cases. We know how food problems occur and direct our investigations to ascertain who in the food delivery process caused the adulteration.

Experience shows that food adulteration can occur at many stages of its delivery to the consumer, including:

  • Bad water or fertilizer used by the food grower
  • Contamination caused by dirty processing machines
  • Tainted ingredients delivered to a food processor
  • Unsafe sanitary conditions at the restaurant

Food can become contaminated anywhere in the delivery process, from the fields or barns to the kitchen. The most common types of food contamination include:

  • Salmonella
  • Listeria
  • E. coli
  • Norovirus
  • Campylobacter
  • Hepatitis A

Sometimes, it is more effective to go after the producer of the tainted food than the restaurant or grocery store that sold it to you. We will explore all possibilities using investigators and experts with specific knowledge about food-related problems, effectively maximizing your chance at recovering financial compensation.

Maximizing Your Financial Recovery

In contaminated food cases, there is increased risk of harm to children, older adults, those with compromised immune systems and women who are pregnant. In these individuals, or anyone affected by food poisoning, damage can be done to internal organs, such as the kidneys and liver. Diarrhea is the most common result of food poisoning, which can lead to severe dehydration and other health problems.

We work with medical experts to analyze the extent of the damage and its long-term effects so that we can effectively communicate these effects as part of your claim. We consult with damage experts who can testify about all of the harm you have suffered, including medical bills, lost wages, future harms and, most importantly, pain and suffering. Schedule a free consult today to learn more about how we can help.

Examples of adulterated food cases we have successfully handled include:

  • Jalisco Cheese Cases: millions of dollars recovered for two mothers who consumed listeria-tainted cheese and whose children were born with birth defects.
  • Itella Bad Faith Case: a food processor's seafood salad was tainted. Their insurance company denied their claim, until we proved they acted in bad faith.
