What is a Shigella Infection?

Shigella can easily be contracted and spread as a result of unsanitary food handling practices, usually due to improper handwashing techniques following restroom usage. Eating food or drinking water that is contaminated with Shigella bacteria can cause you to contract the illness and exhibit various debilitating symptoms.

Symptoms of a Shigella infection include:

  • Severe diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloody stools
  • High fever
  • Dehydration

If you or a loved one has experienced these symptoms, it is imperative that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Shigellosis can potentially be fatal, especially in young children and elderly patients. Once you have gotten appropriate medical care, contact a Shigella food poisoning attorney from our firm as soon as possible.

You may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expense
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
