Listeria Food Poisoning

Listeria and Listeriosis Clients

Pat and John

“When John tested positive for listeriosis, our family was horrified. We had no idea what had made him sick or how any of this was possible,” says Pat, whose husband was sickened after consuming a food product contaminated with Listeria bacteria.

“Following the advice of my family, I began to interview lawyers.  Fred Pritzker came into the rehab hospital in July to meet with my brother and I.”

“I will say that hiring Fred was one of the best decisions I made throughout this ordeal.  He is smart, caring, and incredibly hard working.”

Pat and John have become tireless food safety advocates. It has been our privilege to know them as clients and friends.

E. coli and Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

E coli

E. coli Bacteria

“When I was seventeen years old, I became very sick with a food-borne illness called E. coli. I later learned that I got the bacteria from an under-cooked meat product. Because of this, I suffered from hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which caused my kidneys to fail. I was on dialysis for three months,” says one of our young clients.

“Fred Pritzker was there for some very difficult times in my family.”

“My case was settled for several million dollars. I cannot imagine pursuing the lawsuit with any other firm, yes they are very professional but, more importantly, they care about their clients. They take that extra step.”

“I wanted the best attorney I could get so I inquired about the top 100 wrongful death attorneys in the country, contacted several, and Fred Pritzker responded immediately,” says William. “He flew out to Washington State, where I live, to meet me and my friends and family and get the ball rolling. There was a whirlwind of action right away, and Fred held my hand the entire trip.”

“I learned that Fred has put together a team of professionals from all fields of endeavor to assist him in successfully representing his clients, from hydro engineers to Legionella disease specialists. His personal knowledge, gathered from years of experience, is awesome and extremely useful.”

“Not only did Fred Pritzker and crew get a reasonable settlement for my claim within six months, he also became a close friend of mine and is still in touch with me today.”

Motorcycle Accident

Albert was hurled nearly 60 feet when a car pulled in front of his motorcycle. He wasn’t wearing a helmet and suffered a fractured temple bone, a severed nerve that caused him to lose hearing in one ear, and brain contusions. He had what are called closed head injuries where the damage inside doesn’t necessarily show on the outside. Eventually, he had to close his recently opened janitorial business because he physically couldn’t do it.

“The people at Pritzker Law showed me a lot of compassion and interest. They set up so many appointments for me. They wanted to get to the root of the problem,” says Albert. “It’s a dynamite law firm. They care; they’re honest; and they’ll take good care of you.”

Car Accident

Car Crash“Fred would just sit down and tell me what to expect. I liked that. It built trust between us. We settled out of court. But he did prepare us in case we had to go in that direction. Nothing can ever replace what I lost or what I continue to lose, but I was satisfied with what we got,” says Deanne, who needed back fusion surgery after a crash.

“I have recommended Pritzker Law, and I would do that over and over again. I was very pleased. They feel like a big part of my life. They are a wonderful bunch of people.”
