Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a disorder in which the body’s immune response, typically to infection, causes nerve damage. The rare syndrome affects about one to two people in 100,000 each year. It can present as a very mild case of brief weakness to devastating paralysis, affecting the muscles that allow a person to breathe independently.
Fortunately, most people eventually recover from even the most severe cases of Guillain-Barré, although some are left with some level of weakness. Some symptoms of GBS include difficulty breathing, persistent and severe pain, difficulty speaking, problems with chewing or swallowing, paralysis, difficulty walking without assistance, and constipation. We at Marler Clark provide Guillain-Barré syndrome lawyers and information to guide clients in the right direction.

All of the people at Marler and Clark were very attentive to our needs and concerns. We would highly recommend their law firm for any legal advice regarding food safety. They are very transparent and will make contact with you in a timely fashion.
My wife and I can't thank Bill Marler and everyone at Marler Clark enough for how well they looked after us in our time of need. Bill visited us while our son was in the hospital and he, or his staff, were in contact with us every step of the way. Everyone at Marler Clark was caring and compassionate about our situation while working on our behalf. Even after our case was settled, Bill has checked in with us from time to time, wanting to know how our son was doing.
