Food Contamination Cases

Frequently Asked About Food Contamination and Foodborne Illnesses
How do I determine if I have an illness caused by contaminated food?

Read all the information on our website. Consult your doctor. Discuss your concerns and any symptoms with him or her. Medical tests should determine the cause of your illness.

How do I learn whether or not I have a valid and collectible food contamination injury claim?

We can help you with this. We will do a preliminary investigation of your claim at no cost to you. If we determine that your claim has merit, and you choose to have us represent you, we will do so on a contingent fee basis. This means we are paid only if we win your claim and you collect.

Can I handle my contaminated food injury claim myself, without a lawyer?

This is technically possible, but it would be unwise to even attempt it. Product injury litigation is highly complex. Most lawyers would not even attempt this. Only those few lawyers experienced in food contamination injury and illness litigation should file these claims.

Can you represent me with my contaminated food injury claim even though I do not live in Arizona?

For more than 35 years, we have successfully represented people throughout the United States who were harmed by an array of dangerous products, including contaminated food.

It makes good sense to hire a local lawyer to handle purely local matters, such as drafting wills, real estate disputes and divorce. For matters that are potentially national in scope, however, and as complex as contaminated food injury litigation, it is best not to limit your search for a law firm to your area.

Your lawsuit may not even be filed in the state where you live. Another state may be more appropriate and more favorable for your claim. We work with experienced co-counsel in all areas of the country.

If you decide to work with us, you will find that the physical distance between us means nothing. We will quickly get to know each other personally, and our friendly and professional staff of lawyers and paralegals will be greatly attentive and responsive to all your needs.

If I decide to go forward with an food contamination injury claim, will you handle my case on a contingent fee basis?

Yes. We are paid only if we win your case and you collect. Otherwise, you pay nothing—no fees and no expenses. How much is my food contamination injury claim worth?

It is impossible for any lawyer, or anyone else, to answer this question in advance of thorough preparation of your claim. Many factors must be weighed in the course of evaluation of every contaminated food injury claim. These include medical evidence of the extent of your injuries or illness, and your present and future losses (monetary and others).

How much time do I have to make a decision about moving forward with my food contamination injury claim?

Simply stated, it is best to retain a lawyer to represent you as soon as possible following your diagnosis of a food contamination-related illness. Statutes of limitation vary among states, and different statutes may apply to your claim. If these legal deadlines expire, your claim may be permanently barred. Because the investigation of your claim will require some time, it is wise to get started at the earliest time possible.

Furthermore, the sooner a claim is initiated, the sooner we can get compensation for you and your family.

How do I get started?

It's simple; just call us. We will answer all your questions in strict confidence and without any obligation. Then, if you choose to have us represent you, we will begin work on your contaminated food injury case immediately.

We would like to help you, just as we have helped so many other people who were harmed by dangerous products.

Remember, the law firm you choose makes a difference!
