Can I Sue for Salmonella Food Poisoning?

You may have the right to sue if the following applies:

  1. you have been diagnosed with salmonellosis; and
  2. there is sufficient evidence connecting your illness to a food product or location (restaurant, for example).

The legal claims in every Salmonella poisoning lawsuit are based on the following theories of recovery:

  • Strict liability – Products sold are not supposed to cause harm.
  • Negligence – Sellers of food at every level are supposed to use reasonable care to ensure the safety of the food.
  • Breach of warranty – Sellers of food warrant that it is fit to eat.

Do I Need a Salmonella Lawyer?

These cases depend on microbiologic and statistical evidence. Our lawyers are some of the few in the nation who have won food poisoning cases using this evidence. We highly recommend you hire a lawyer who has experience with outbreak investigations and litigation.

You Should Get Compensation for Illness from Food Contaminated with Feces (Poop)

The most common source of illness is food contaminated with the feces of infected people or animals. People who come into contact with stool need only pick up a few cells of Salmonella bacterium to become infected. Companies that handle food are required to take measures to prevent contamination and to detect contamination before food is sold to consumers. When that does not happen, people get sick. It is our job to hold companies liable for selling contaminated food.

Although the number of cases reported in the U.S. annually is about 40,000, it is estimated that up to four million infections occur in this nation each year because mild cases are often not reported or diagnosed.

What is Salmonella?

The term Salmonella actually refers to a group of bacteria, many of which cause diarrheal illness in animals and humans. There are many different kinds of this bacteria. S. Typhimurium (or .Typhi) can cause the illness typhoid. The illness caused by other types, including S. Enteritidis, which is common in the U.S., is called salmonellosis.


Complications include the following:

  • Dehydration;
  • Bacteremia – life threatening infection of the blood that can infect the brain (meningitis), heart (endocarditis), bones (osteomyelitis), and other parts of the body, resulting in sepsis;
  • Colitis;
  • Reactive Arthritis – eye irritation, painful urination, painful joints and other sources of pain;
  • Meningitis – brain infection;
  • Wrongful Death.
