Salmonella Food Poisoning

In the United States, salmonella is the most common type of food poisoning people. Many salmonella infections are due to a person's consumption of contaminated foods or drinks. Others are caused by exposure to unsanitary kitchen surfaces or excrement from an infected person or animal. While salmonella is treatable, it can be deadly in some cases, especially when an individual does not seek medical attention quickly enough or a medical professional fails to timely diagnose the illness.

If you or someone you love has been infected with salmonella food poisoning due to another party's negligence, you may have be able to pursue legal action.

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Severe and painful headaches
