I’m Ed Smith, an East Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. Hepatitis A is a virus that causes liver disease, and that typically is transmitted through the ingestion of contaminated water or food, or through direct contact with an infectious person.  Because there is an effective vaccine available to prevent hepatitis A, it is usually those who are unvaccinated that are more at risk of contracting hepatitis A from contaminated water or food.  While other hepatitis viruses can cause chronic liver disease, hepatitis A can cause debilitating symptoms and acute liver failure, which is sudden and temporary, but it can also be fatal.

Botulism is a serious type of food poisoning that can occur if you ingest food that contains a neurotoxin produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum.  Clostridium botulinum bacteria tend to thrive and produce the neurotoxin in an environment with little oxygen, such as that found in canned goods.  Even a tiny amount of the neurotoxin can cause you to be severely ill.  While botulism is not the most common form of food poisoning, it can be deadly if the illness is not caught right away and properly treated.

Suing A Fairfield Restaurant For Food Poisoning

I’m Ed Smith, a Fairfield Personal Injury Attorney. Foodborne illnesses caused by bacteria and viruses can be very serious and in some cases can cause severe complications leading up to possible death. Food poisoning can occur in many places but oftentimes the source of food poisoning outbreaks occur in restaurants, cafes, and other food service settings. In these instances, infectious outbreaks usually arise because a food service employee does not take proper hygienic procedures in preparing or handling food before it is served; it can be the chef in the kitchen or the waiter bringing your meal to your table that can bring you a nightmare to your stomach. In cases where you have suffered serious injuries as a result of food poisoning from eating at a restaurant, it can be possible to file a claim against that identified restaurant for any damages you have sustained. However, there are a number of steps you must first follow in order to determine whether that claim is even viable in the first place.
