- Food Poisoning and Food Contamination Lawsuits in AZ
Of all of the vendors that the people of Arizona trust explicitly, perhaps none are more trusted than those who sell us our food. This is somewhat strange when one considers the fact that few if any of us actually know the people who feed us. However, when someone is made ill as a result of eating tainted food and we suffer from food poisoning, there are situations where an Arizona personal injury lawsuit could be filed. This step should only be taken with the help of Arizona food poisoning lawyers, and below is an overview of this issue.
Arizona Food Poisoning and Contamination – Negligence & Liability
One possible way to hold someone liable for food poisoning is by way of proving negligence. Negligence can be proven when an injured plaintiff shows that those who were handling the food that was sold and eaten should have been properly inspected or handled and it wasn’t, and this improper handling of the food is what led to the illness. It should also be shown to the court that the person who ate the food did not misuse it, did not allow it to spoil and did not alter it to the point where it was no longer similar to what was purchased.
In addition to a negligence theory, those who have been made ill could hold those responsible for this illness accountable under a theory of products liability. Under this type of claim, the plaintiff will need to prove that the food was mishandled somehow or that it was tainted and/or defective at the time it was placed into the market stream. Therefore, while this theory can be more difficult to prove in court, the plaintiff could name everyone in the chain of distribution from the farm to the table as defendants.

If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
