Savannah Lawyers: When Unsafe Foods Cause Injury

Each year, many people experience severe food poisoning from foods they thought were safe. When a restaurant or other food company is to blame, legal action may be a good way to hold them accountable for the harm. At Ladson Law Firm, PC, in Savannah, Georgia, we represent personal injury victims and their families in food-illness litigation and are dedicated to achieving the best possible results.

Our clients include people who have suffered severe illness as the result of food poisoning. Often, they are young children or the elderly — people who were particularly susceptible to food-borne illness. And the sicknesses come from a wide range of bacteria:

  • Salmonella
  • Hepatitis A
  • E. coli
  • Listeria

Like the manufacturer of any product, manufacturers of food should be held strictly liable when that food is defective. Whether the contamination came from a restaurant, a cruise ship, a food vendor or a product found in the grocery store, legal action holds them accountable. It also helps compensate injured people for their medical bills and may prevent future food safety risks.

E. Coli Outbreaks — Did a Restaurant Cause My Food Poisoning?

Because E. coli bacteria has an incubation period between the time the food is eaten and the time an injured person feels ill, many people do not initially realize that a certain food is to blame. As experienced attorneys, we can help you prove in court that it was the restaurant or food company that caused your illness.

Our law firm has been dedicated to excellence in the practice of law since 1977. Our founding lawyer, M. Brice Ladson, is AV-rated under Martindale-Hubbell's peer review rating system. He is also listed on the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, reflecting the best law firms in America.
