Birmingham’s Most Trusted Attorneys
There are hundreds of bacteria and viruses that can contaminate your food, but it is difficult to prove which meal caused food poisoning. Defendants need to be able to prove that the food was defective and or not properly prepared.
If you have fallen ill to food poisoning, you should seek medical attention and documentation from the doctors that can be used as evidence. When multiple people are affected, it is easier to prove there was contamination. Conditions like Salmonella or E-Coli do not present themselves for at least 24 hours, so having nausea or stomach problems does not necessarily mean that it was the previous meal. This is why having a written doctor’s note is needed.
