Baton Rouge Food Poisoning Attorney

Louisiana Salmonella, E. Coli and Listeria Lawyer

We trust the foods we purchase have been carefully prepared to ensure they are safe for consumption and haven’t been contaminated – either through spoilage or contact with bacteria. Unfortunately, the recent nationwide Salmonella outbreak has demonstrated all too clearly this is not always the case.

We are here to help you. No fee unless we collect for you.

At Bohrer Brady LLC, our lawyers protect the rights and interests of people who have been injured as a result of the negligence of others. If someone who is responsible for the manufacture, distribution, storage, sale or preparation of your food hasn’t taken proper precautions to ensure the safety of your food, you shouldn’t have to face the consequences alone.

Food poisoning can be caused by several different types of bacteria, including salmonella, listeria and E. Coli.

  • Salmonella is one of the most common causes of food poisoning. Salmonella bacteria have been found in many uncooked vegetables, dairy products, meat, and poultry, and can survive if food is not properly prepared.
  • Food poisoning resulting from the Listeria bacteria generally arises when a person with a vulnerable immune system is subject to the bacteria in high concentrations.
  • Certain strains of the E. Coli bacteria, spread largely through the use of contaminated water, can result in severe stomach ailments.

Bacteria take time to spread and grow, so there is generally a delay between the time you contract a foodborne illness and the time you begin to experience symptoms. This can make it difficult to establish a single source for your illness. However, at Bohrer Brady LLC, our personal injury attorneys have the experience necessary to handle even the most complex cases.
