E. coli lawyer Fred Pritzker and his Bad Bug Law Team are continuing to accept cases from people sickened in the Los Burritos Mexicanos restaurant outbreak in Lombard, Illinois. Still under investigation by the DuPage County Health Department, at least 11 customers have been confirmed as case patients, including kidney failure victims who are battling hemolytic uremic syndrome, or HUS.
Pritzker and his food poisoning team recover millions of dollars a year for victims of E. coli outbreaks and they are one of the few legal groups in the country practicing extensively in the area of foodborne illness litigation. Contact Fred for a no-obligation case review by clicking here, or call the firm's law offices at 1-888-377-8900 (Toll Free). Our job is to hold purveyors of contaminated food throughout the supply chain accountable and responsible for the deaths and serious illnesses caused by negligence and safety failure. Food poisoning is preventable and restaurants can be sued when they are at the center of an outbreak, even when the precise food ingredient that contained the pathogen was not identified.
Los Burritos Mexicanos was closed by the health department on June 14 after the first four cases of E. coli O157:H7 were discovered in customers of the restaurant, which has been popular with young people in the Lombard area. It can take up to 10 days for some people to show their first symptoms of an infection, so it is still possible the number of people harmed by E. coli in this outbreak could grow. If you are experiencing stomach pain, diarrhea (often bloody) and a slight fever after eating at Los Burritos, see your doctor immediately. Children are most at risk for developing HUS, which is deadly in about 5 percent of cases and can cause life-long illness in survivors.
