Factors Relevant to a Claim Related to Food Poisoning Injuries

Food poisoning in a school cafeteria may not be a regular occurrence but it does happen. When it does, there can certainly be unpleasant side effects. This in itself generally doesn’t warrant filing a claim. However, if it caused a child to suffer serious or fatal injuries, then it might.

The claim must prove negligence. Although improper preparation and storage of food could lead to school cafeteria workers held responsible for the food poisoning, there are other scenarios in which food poisoning could occur. For instance, it may be that the food arrived at the cafeteria tainted. In this case the manufacturer who makes and packages the food could be liable.

Since the cause of food poisoning may not be readily evident and considering the complex laws that can impact filing a claim against a school district, seeking legal counsel is important. Call Jason R. Schultz for legal assistance: (404) 474-0804.
