Victims of Peanut Salmonella Want Criminal Charges Brought

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 11-Mar-2011

In a massive Salmonella outbreak ultimately linked to the Peanut Corporation of America, several victims, or families of victims, want the Justice Department to file criminal charges against PCA, reports say. The Salmonella outbreak sickened thousands in the United States and Canada, causing a number of deaths, reports say.

PCA reportedly furnished peanuts that went into some 3,500 products. Those products in turn made some 22,500 people sick and nine people dead from Salmonella infection, reports say.

When US FDA inspectors investigated the plant in January, they found evidence of mold, cockroaches, and Salmonella Bacteria, say reports. Stewart Parnell was the CEO of PCA during the massive infection, but he has reportedly never been charged with a crime, despite saying in testimony that he was aware that the Salmonella Bacteria was detected at the Georgia plant, and didn't order the halt to shipping.

Most people suffering from Salmonella recover, but in older or very young patients, the infection may spread to the blood stream and can cause death.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
