Food Poisoning

Texas Personal Injury Lawyers for Food Poisoning Claims

Foodborne diseases are contracted by ingesting food or drink contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites or toxins. Symptoms range from fever and nausea to bloody diarrhea and cramps. Occasionally, food poisoning can be so severe that it leads to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) — which can result in kidney failure and even death.

If you believe that you have food poisoning or are ill because of a tainted food product, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer. At Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz, our food poisoning injury attorneys represent injured people nationwide.
