Hepatitis A Outbreak Lawsuits

The hepatitis A lawyers of Marler Clark, Inc.,PS have many years of experience working with clients on Hepatitis A outbreak lawsuits.

Hepatitis A is one of five human hepatitis viruses (hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E) that primarily infect the liver and cause illness. It is a communicable (or contagious) disease that spreads from person-to-person through fecal-oral contact, often from an infected food handler contaminating food. The cases the Marler Clark hepatitis A lawyers have been involved in have generally resulted from contaminated food or water.

An estimated 80,000 hepatitis A cases and an estimated 100 deaths due to acute liver failure brought on by hepatitis A occur each year in the U.S. The rate of infection has dramatically decreased since the hepatitis A vaccine was licensed and became available in 1995. Despite the decrease in hepatitis A cases nationally, Marler Clark has represented clients young and old who have become ill with hepatitis A after eating contaminated food or who were exposed to the virus and had to receive an injection to prevent illness.

The Marler Clark hepatitis A attorneys have unmatched experience representing victims of hepatitis A. Our law firm represented victims of notable hepatitis A outbreaks such as the 2003 Chi Chi’s hepatitis A outbreak, the 2005 California lettuce hepatitis A outbreak, and the 2010 Quad-Cities McDonald’s hepatitis A outbreak.

Bill Marler and his team demonstrated a clear passion for their work and diligently ran to ground all of the details and nuances surrounding our family's case. The Marler Clark team managed our expectations extremely well, making sure that we were prepared at each step in the process and knew that there would be frustrating times along the way. On top of the impeccable professionalism, we formed friendships with Bill and Julie, and they introduced us to other clients who were going through similar experiences to our own, all of which was therapeutic and reminded us that we were not alone. And last but not least, we achieved success -- there is no substitute for subject matter expertise and years of experience! Thanks again Bill, Julie, and the entire Marler Clark team!

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.
