Can You Sue a Hotel for Food Poisoning?

Depending on the facts, you can sue a hotel for food poisoning if the evidence shows a connection between the illnesses and food prepared at a hotel restaurant.  For you to have a case against a hotel, you need to be diagnosed with infection from Campylobacter, E. coli, hepatitis A, Listeria, Salmonella, Shigella or Vibrio. These foodborne pathogens can cause serious injury and wrongful death.

People sickened by food served at a hotel have the legal right to sue for compensation. What each case is worth depends on a number of factors, including the severity of the illness, the length of hospitalization and the amount of time the victim could not work.

In some cases, food poisoning victims develop serious complications, including hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), colitis, meningitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and sepsis.

Recent Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Holiday Inn

An outbreak of Salmonella food poisoning in North Carolina has been linked to the Holiday Inn Bordeaux-Fayetteville. Two people have confirmed cases of Salmonella infection, one of whom has been hospitalized. Fourteen others have suspected cases.

All of the Salmonella victims ate food prepared on May 7 or 8 at the Holiday Inn, which has two restaurants, the All American Sports Bar and Grill and The Café Bordeaux, and a banquet kitchen.
