At some point in our lives…or even more than once…we will experience some type of food poisoning. The CDC estimates that about 76 million cases a year occur. Most are not reported because they are mild enough to treat without the help of a doctor, or because they are mistaken as being something else like stomach flu. Some of the causes of food poisoning are bacteria, viruses, parasites and toxins.
If food poisoning happens due to a restaurant, you may have an option to sue the restaurant. So, when should a victim consider filing a law suit for food poisoning? You may need the help of an attorney to know what to do. This infographic provided by Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law outlines what food poisoning is and how it can happen.
