Chicago Food Product Liability Lawyers

Representing the Victims of Food-Related Product Liability Cases

Food poisoning and other foodborne illnesses affect about 48 million Americans each year, according to the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). In fact, the CDC estimates that approximately 1 in 6 Americans get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases each year.

Food poisoning and food-related illnesses can result in a number of symptoms, including nausea, cramping, abdominal pain, diarrhea, dehydration, weakness, and fatigue. The elderly, infants, and individuals with weakened immune systems are at the greatest risk for food-related illnesses.

Food poisoning and other food injuries are caused by pathogens and contamination, which can occur at a number of sources for a number of reasons – from inadequate safety measures at the manufacturing facility to unsanitary food preparation techniques at a restaurant. If a food-related illness is caused by the negligence of a food manufacturer or provider, you may be able to recover compensation in a personal injury or product liability lawsuit.

The Chicago food product liability lawyers at Cogan & Power, P.C. focus on helping the victims of food-related illness obtain financial compensation for their injuries. We offer a free, no-obligation consultation to anyone who has been injured as a result of an unsafe food product or other defective product. Contact our office at (312) 477-2500 to schedule a free case evaluation with one of our dedicated Chicago product liability attorneys.

Product Liability Laws

Many states impose strict product liability laws, which means that a food manufacturer can be held liable for injuries caused by a contaminated food product if the plaintiff can show that the food was contaminated when it left the manufacturer’s possession and the food contamination caused the plaintiff’s injuries. In states that do not have strict liability laws, the plaintiff must also prove that the defendant – whether a food manufacturer, restaurant owner, or other food handler – negligently or intentionally caused the food to become contaminated or unsafe.

Proving that an illness or injury was caused by contaminated food can be challenging, however, and detailed factual information related to the medical, microbiological, and food safety fields is often required. Accordingly, it is important to get the help of a skilled Illinois food-related illness lawyer to guide you through the process and advocate on your behalf. The Chicago food product liability attorneys at Cogan & Power have considerable experience handling product liability cases and the legal complexities they involve.

Our team of dedicated Chicago injury attorneys is committed to obtaining favorable verdicts or settlements on behalf of our clients, and making the marketplace safer for consumers. Our proven track record of success in accident and injury cases speaks volumes, as does the fact that our attorneys have been recognized among the top 100 consumer attorneys in Illinois by Leading Lawyers Network and Illinois Super Lawyers.

If you were injured or became ill as a result of an unsafe or contaminated food product, contact the Chicago product liability attorneys at Cogan & Power at (312) 477-2500 to schedule a free consultation to discuss a possible product liability claim. If you cannot come to our offices in downtown Chicago, we will come to you.  And because we take cases on a contingency basis, you will not pay any fee unless we get you compensation.
