True Story: Food Contamination

When consumers purchase food for themselves and their families, they trust that the companies manufacturing and selling that food have done everything within their power to provide a product safe for consumption.  When that trust is betrayed, the results can be catastrophic.

“Christine” was a healthy woman enjoying life until she suffered from a terrible case of food poisoning.  She often purchased fish from a local business in order to make nutritious meals for herself and her family.  Sadly, one lot of fish she purchased turned out to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.  That contamination caused her to become extremely ill, spending more than a week in the hospital and suffering severe, life-threatening symptoms.  Christine was eventually released from the hospital but continues to suffer significantly due to the lasting fear that anything she eats could cause her to suffer so terribly again as well as the need for ongoing medication to help minimize her residual gastrointestinal symptoms.

Christine and her husband, “Peter,” hired GoldenbergLaw to represent them in their efforts to hold the manufacturer and seller of the contaminated fish accountable.  After hiring a renowned epidemiologist and conducting multiple depositions of corporate representatives utilizing internal documents obtained from both the manufacturer and the seller of the contaminated fish, GoldenbergLaw was able to hold the companies that betrayed Christine’s trust accountable and obtain a substantial settlement for Christine and Peter.

Christine suffered tremendously from the companies’ breach of her trust in providing her food that was not fit to eat, but their experience with GoldenbergLaw allowed Christine and Peter to put the terrible food poisoning incident behind them and move on with their lives.  They expressed sincere appreciation for the supportive and sympathetic manner in which they were treated by GoldenbergLaw’s attorneys and staff, as that approach made them feel that they had true advocates in their corner who invested themselves in their case and approached every interaction with not only dedication but also compassion.
