Background Knowledge in Food Service
Trial lawyer Michael Lombardi has practiced in personal injury claims for 35 years. The Lombardi family also owns restaurant chains and they know the questions to ask regarding:
- Previous health code violations
- Improper food storage
- Food supply source
- Insufficient cooking
- Kitchen sanitation
- Handwashing practices
- Other negligence resulting in food poisoning
Lombardi and Lombardi have access to food handling experts who can help establish liability for salmonella, e coli, and other foodborne illness. A single case of food poisoning is tough to prove, but if several people ate at the same restaurant and became sick we can often help. After tying the cases to a specific location, we work to pinpoint the handling techniques that allowed the bacteria to thrive and spread. We have handled cases involving up to 60 people sickened by prepared food. Damages include medical care and lost wages. In severe cases involving organ damage or death, additional damages could be available.
Foreign Objects in Food — We have also won damages for serious injuries from foreign objects in restaurant food or packaged food products. The most common scenario is metal or plastic that is swallowed and causes tears in the throat or stomach.
