The Shigella lawyers of Marler Clark have many years of experience working with clients on Shigella lawsuits.

Shigella is a bacterium that can cause sudden and severe diarrhea (gastroenteritis) in humans. Shigella infection occurs when the excrement (feces) of an infected individual is ingested by another person. The infectious material is spread to new cases by person-to-person contact or via contaminated food or water. Approximately 20% of the nearly 450,000 cases of shigellosis that occur annually in the U.S are foodborne-related, leading to Shigella outbreaks. Food can become contaminated by food workers or during processing.

Contamination of drinking water by Shigella is a problem that more often occurs in the developing world, but swimming pools and beaches in the U.S. can become contaminated by infected individuals and have been linked to Shigella outbreaks. No group of individuals is immune to shigellosis, but certain individuals are at increased risk, particularly small children.

Our Shigella lawyers have represented victims of notable Shigella outbreaks such as the 2003 Doubletree Hotel Shigella outbreak, the 2006 Filiberto’s Shigella outbreak, and the 2010 Subway Shigella outbreak.

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.

James Ruocchio

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.
