Warshafsky Uncovers Unsafe Restaurant Practices in Food Poisoning Lawsuit

Milwaukee Food Poisoning Lawyer Prompts Swift Change in Handling Practices after High-Dollar Settlement

Many people chalk food poisoning up to bad luck. Food borne illness usually starts as stomach aches and sweating before turning into days ruined by vomiting and digestive issues. Every year, thousands of people are hospitalized by illnesses like E Coli, Salmonella and Botulism. Intestinal bacteria and the activation of toxins are not simple matters of misfortune. The young, the elderly and pregnant women are particularly vulnerable, and hundreds of innocents die.

Warshafsky’s Milwaukee food poisoning attorneys excel at discovering the causal connection between illness and a restaurant’s unsafe practices. When a restaurant causes widespread or severe sickness, Warshafsky will find them and hold them accountable. Accountability means getting the highest judgments and settlements for the wronged party in every separate case. There has never been a legitimate reason for a man, woman or child to have suffered unlawfully.

INJURED? It IS About The Money.®

One restaurant chain failed its customers with subpar food handling practices, and severe sicknesses resulted in hospitalizations. Warshafsky law firm litigated to receive huge monetary awards for our clients. As a direct result, the chain implemented new policies, and employees nationwide underwent additional training above and beyond basic legal hygiene regulations. Today, food-related sickness from this restaurant has been greatly reduced. Warshafsky has achieved another Society Changing Judgment.

Foodborne illnesses are not matters of luck. When restaurants chains deal with millions of customers and diseases repeat themselves, a systemic problem exists. The BEST procedures protecting patrons from sickness MUST be vigorously pursued. Restaurant failures are felt by thousands of people trapped away from their jobs and their families inside bedrooms and bathrooms. A ruined weekend to some becomes a compromised immune system to others. Costly hospitalizations range from severe nuisance to life-changing injury.
