The Norovirus attorneys of Marler Clark have many years of experience working with clients on Norovirus outbreak lawsuits.
Noroviruses are estimated to cause 23 million cases of acute gastroenteritis (commonly called the “stomach flu”) in the U.S. each year, and are the leading cause of gastroenteritis. In addition, norovirus outbreaks may be the most common foodborne illness outbreaks. Noroviruses can cause extended outbreaks because of their high infectivity, persistence in the environment, resistance to common disinfectants, and difficulty in controlling their transmission through routine sanitary measures.
The norovirus is transmitted primarily through the fecal-oral route and fewer than 100 norovirus particles are said to be needed to cause infection. Transmission occurs either person-to-person or through contamination of food or water. Transmission can occur by:
· Touching surfaces or objects contaminated with norovirus and then placing that hand in your mouth
· Having direct contact with another person who is infected with norovirus and showing symptoms
· Sharing foods or eating utensils with someone who is ill
· Exposure to aerosolized vomit
· Consuming food contaminated by an infected food handler.

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!
