Our food poisoning lawyers recently settled a norovirus food poisoning lawsuit against a Macomb County banquet hall. We represented twenty-one people who became ill after attending one of three wedding receptions at the banquet facility. The attendees became very sick after the wedding and many suffered from gastrointestinal illness and vomiting due to the norovirus.
Norovirus food poisoning is most commonly recognized as a short-term "stomach flu." These cases usually involve clients who have become ill after eating at a Norovirus contaminated restaurant or banquet hall or after an outbreak has occurred at day-care centers or nursing homes. Some of the most common symptoms of norovirus include:
- Stomach cramping
- Muscle ache
These symptoms are usually most pronounced in young children, the elderly, and persons with immune systems that have already been weakened from other diseases.
The lawsuit was filed against the banquet facility alleging that all of the clients were sickened due to food poisoning at the facility. Depositions of attendees were taken and information was gathered from the health department. The case settled prior to trial.
