About Newland & Newland, LLP

Illinois Food Poisoning Attorneys Represent Illinois Foodborne Illness Victims

With approximately 48 million cases of food poisoning each year and nearly 32 million Americans who suffer from food allergies, food illnesses are a major public health issue across the United States. Many of these sicknesses are preventable and only occur due to negligence and insufficient safety procedures by food producers and food service entities.

At Newland & Newland, LLP, we aggressively represent clients who have suffered or have seen a loved one suffer due to the actions or inaction of individuals, businesses, or other institutions where food is served or sold. This includes restaurants, food manufacturers, schools and daycare facilities, grocery stores, nursing homes, and hospitals. Our mission is the pursuit of justice for our clients and increased safety for the public.

We have secured more than $1 million in food poisoning settlements and verdicts for our clients, including $53,000 for a client who spent multiple days in the hospital but suffered no long-term effects.

Food Poisoning Cases

With 250 known foodborne illnesses, which contribute to nearly 130,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 fatalities each year, food poisoning effects every area of the country. Common types of food poisoning include:

To file a food poisoning lawsuit with the help of a skilled attorney from Newland & Newland, LLP, it is essential you get a prompt diagnosis from a physician. Along with local health authorities, our lawyers can help determine the source of your poisoning and the type of negligence involved.

Food Allergy Reaction Cases

The number of people diagnosed with food allergies has increased dramatically over the past decade as awareness has spread. Consuming even a trace amount of an allergen can cause an individual to go into shock, which is only remedied by an epinephrine (EpiPen) injection and treatment from a physician. The most common allergens are:

  • Milk;
  • Peanuts;
  • Eggs;
  • Tree nuts;
  • Soy;
  • Wheat;
  • Fish; and
  • Shellfish.

Newland & Newland, LLP serves as a dedicated legal advocate for individuals stricken with food allergies, who suffered a severe reaction due to faulty food production or labeling, or insufficient safety measures at public dining establishments. We can help prove why your reaction occurred and hold negligent parties accountable.
