Suffering From a Staph Infection?

Our Orlando Food Poisoning Lawyers Can Help

Photo of Staphylococcus aureusStaphylococcus aureus is a bacterium that grows in some foods. A toxin the bacteria produces can cause extreme vomiting. You could contract the disease from infected food workers or through eating contaminated food like milk or cheese. These toxins are fast acting, and consumers may experience symptoms within 30 minutes.

Symptoms of staphylococcus (often known as staph infections) to the skin include impetigo and cellulitis. In some cases, scalded skin syndrome can develop on the food poisoning victim. Staph infections are usually treated with an antibiotic ointment. Some victims may also receive oral antibiotics.

Victims of serious food poisoning cases may be entitled to compensation from the negligent party. Our Orlando food poisoning attorneys can investigate your illness and determine who caused it: a restaurant worker who improperly cooked the food, a food manufacturer with poor sanitation standards or any other responsible entity. You could receive compensation for damages and losses.

Staph infections can be complicated and painful for all victims. If you have been infected with staphylococcus, it is important to speak with a qualified attorney with proven experience with these cases.
