Injuries and Damages That Could Be Recoverable in a Salmonella Lawsuit
If a consumer or their child becomes ill due to consuming the contaminated products and decides to pursue a lawsuit, the potential injuries and damages they could recover include:
- Medical Expenses: Victims may seek compensation for medical expenses incurred as a result of the Salmonella infection. This includes costs associated with doctor visits, hospitalization, medication, lab tests, and any necessary ongoing medical treatment.
- Pain and Suffering: Damages may be sought for the physical pain, discomfort, and emotional distress experienced as a result of the illness. Salmonella infections can cause significant discomfort and disrupt daily life, leading to potential long-term effects and psychological trauma.
- Lost Income: If the illness causes the victim to miss work or experience a loss of income, they may be eligible to recover lost wages. This includes both past and future income that has been affected due to the illness.
- Long-Term Effects and Complications: In some cases, Salmonella infections can lead to long-term health complications. Victims may seek compensation for any ongoing health issues, reduced quality of life, or additional medical treatments required as a result of the infection.
- Wrongful Death: In tragic cases where a loved one has died as a result of a Salmonella infection caused by the recalled products, surviving family members may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. Damages may be sought for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and the emotional toll caused by the loss of a loved one.
It is important for consumers who have suffered injuries or damages due to the recalled products to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney can assess the specific circumstances, gather evidence, and help determine the appropriate legal recourse to pursue compensation for the harm caused by the Salmonella contamination.
