Food Poisoning Can Lead To Compensation

In Ohio, you can recover for damages if you ate food that was negligently prepared, handled or stored. You may also recover if your food was contaminated with a foreign substance. Generally, it takes six hours or more after eating before food poisoning symptoms appear.

These symptoms include:

  • Stomach cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Fever

If you have these symptoms you should go to a doctor immediately as these symptoms could be life-threatening. Salmonella, E-coli and hepatitis A are some examples of food poisoning cases we have pursued. We have lab technicians we work with who can analyze the food to determine what caused your illness.

Even if you do not have any of the food you ate, we can still pursue your case through a review of your medical records and the timing of your symptoms. You may also have a case if a foreign substance is found in your food, such as glass or an insect. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling these cases all across Ohio and can help you recover your medical expenses and pain and suffering.
