Minnesota E. coli lawyer Fred Pritzker and his team have helped hundreds of people sickened by contaminated food and animal contact. Many of our clients suffered a severe complication of E. coli called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Our Minnesota lawyers have also represented families whose loved ones died.
Many of our clients have been children, some of whom have suffered permanent injury. Attorneys Fred Pritzker, Brendan Flaherty and Lindsay Lien Rinholen recently won a $7.55 million verdict in an E. coli lawsuit filed on behalf of a young child. Below is a quote from a testimonial by her father.
“We felt like Fred had a genuine concern for the well-being of our daughter in mind. One of the questions we had was about future medical expenses and how could we face them. Like a lot of medical expenses you really don’t know what is going to hit you. You can guess and estimate some of the costs, but Fred and Brendan had access to reliable information. From experience, they definitely had a great understanding for how those things play out.”Testimonial of Father Who Hired Fred Pritzker to Represent His Daughter

Minnesota E. coli Lawyer Has Decades of Experience
Over twenty years ago, Fred Pritzker was hired by parents of elementary school children sickened after eating at the school cafeteria. His investigation determined that frozen hamburger patties contaminated with E. coli bacteria were the source of the illnesses. Fred obtained settlements for these families from the food company that had processed the beef patties. These settlements ensured that the children would get the best possible medical care, that the parents would be compensated for time taken off of work to care for their children, and that the children would be compensated for the severe pain and suffering they had endured.
Since that time, Fred and his team have helped hundreds of people sickened by contaminated food. Attorneys on our Bad Bug Law Team include Eric Hageman, Brendan Flaherty, Ryan Osterholm, Lindsay Lien Rinholen and David Coyle.
Minnesota E. coli Lawyers Investigate Outbreaks
Our E. coli outbreak law firm is committed to obtaining full and fair compensation for our clients by
- finding the source of outbreaks of illness; and
- taking legal steps to make sure every company responsible is held accountable by compensating our clients.
Finding the source of an outbreak includes interviews with people sickened (and the parents of children sickened), microbiological testing to find the DNA patterns of E. coli bacteria, and analyzing company documents to trace back the implicated food products to the growers, processors and distributors.
“We dig for evidence until we are satisfied that we know every company involved. Then we take steps to hold them accountable for our clients’ E. coli illnesses.”Attorney Ryan Osterholm
