Marler Clark, the Seattle, WA-based law firm known nationwide for its successful representation of persons injured in food-borne illness outbreaks, has launched its informational foodborne illness web sites.
The sites are designed to provide quick and useful information for concerned consumers, and are available as a resource for the media as well.
Each site deals specifically with one of the major foodborne diseases. The sites also provide specific information about the referenced bacteria or virus, and lists the most recent major outbreaks related to each “bug.”
Marler represented Brianne Kiner in her $15.6 million settlement with Jack in the Box. He also secured compensation totaling $30 million for other victims from the 1993 Jack in the Box E. coli outbreak.
In May 1998, the law firm settled the Odwalla Juice E. coli outbreak for the five families whose children were severely injured after consuming Odwalla apple juice. Marler Clark has litigated on behalf of children against KFC, McDonalds, Hardees, Subway, Carl’s Jr., Sizzler and Costco. Today, Marler Clark is lead counsel in actions stemming from several E. coli, Salmonella, Shigella and Hepatitis outbreaks in Washington, California, Ohio, Missouri, and Arizona. The firm is presently representing children in E. coli outbreaks stemming from contaminated beef served in a school lunch and a swimming pool in Atlanta.
