E. coli are bacteria that can cause serious, sometimes fatal, infections in humans. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that E. coli causes 2,000 hospitalizations in the United States each year.
Ten percent of E. coli victims develop hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which can cause kidney failure, damage to the central nervous system, and, ultimately death.

Bill Marler and his staff were with us from when my daughter was in the hospital to the very end of the lawsuit 3 years later. Constantly in touch and on our side with advice right up to the great result they got for my daughter. They fought for her mostly behind the scene and protected us. Thank you Marler Clark.
Bill Marler came to the rescue for our case which started out as a National class action lawsuit but he took our case individually. Bill was very personable and attentive to us and our case and was very understanding while we were.grieving our daughter’s sickness. Bill fought a large corporation for us and we won our case and received great compensation. We will be forever grateful for Bill. We still keep in touch with him even 13 years later.
I would like to start by saying that Bill and his whole law firm are the BEST! So knowledgeable on food born illnesses, through the entire process any questions I had were answered and I never felt like I wasn’t in the right hands! If you need a lawyer look no further then Marler Clark! I feel like we’ve become family, Thank You so much for everything!
