Time is running out to file personal injury and wrongful death claims against Jensen Farms and others for illness and death resulting from eating Rocky Ford cantaloupe produced by Jensen Farms of Colorado that were contaminated with Listeria. The Bankruptcy Court (Jensen Farms filed for bankruptcy) has issued an order regarding the Rocky Ford cantaloupe lawsuit claims that provides for dispersal of insurance money to compensate victims and their families:
- September 2012 Deadline: All people with claims based on the multistate outbreak of listerosis (Listeria infection) linked to cantaloupe produced by Jensen Farms must complete a court-approved claim form and deliver it on or before September 14, 2012. Our law firm is helping many victims and families complete these forms to get their share of the insurance proceeds. Contact our attorneys for a free consultation regarding this form and the possibility of getting additional money from a retailer or another party.
- $2,000,000 Bodily Injury Claims Fund: The Travelers Indemnity Company of America is to pay to Jensen Farms the amount of $2,000,000 that shall be used for the payment of Listeria claims.
- $1,900,000 Bodily Injury Non-Debtors Claims Fund: Insurers for Pepper Equipment Company (sold equipment to Jensen Farms that allegedly caused the Listeria contamination) and Bio Food Safety, Inc. have agreed to tender $1,300,000 and $600,000, respectively, to Jensen Farms for payment of Listeria claims.
Fred Pritzker, lead attorney for our Rocky Ford cantaloupe lawsuits, is urging victims and families to contact him for a free consultation regarding their claims. “Victims and families need to call me now to get their share of the $3,900,000 discussed in the court order and to file claims against other parties, including Frontera Produce and Primus Labs.”
Frontera Produce is a distributor of the recalled cantaloupe and Primus Labs inspected the Jensen Farms cantaloupe processing facility shortly before the outbreak and did not find the Listeria that was pooled in water on and near equipment. The retailer who sold you the cantaloupe may also be liable.
We are representing many people seriously injured in this outbreak and several families of people killed by the deadly melons. Contact our Listeria attorneys for a free consultation regarding a Rocky Ford cantaloupe lawsuit.
