Negligent Allergies/Anaphylactic Shock Injury Lawyers
If someone else’s negligence results in you suffering a serious allergic or anaphylactic shock injury, they could be responsible for compensating you for your injury and losses. Negligent allergic or anaphylactic reactions can occur in variety of settings, but the most common of these is at restaurants, medical clinics, schools, and daycares.
These injuries can result from eating foods with common allergens which are not labeled or mislabeled, or foods that have been cross contaminated in the production, storage, or cooking/baking process. Medical professionals can sometimes forget to inform patients about the severity of their allergies or prescribe medications which can cause an allergic reaction. Schools, daycares, and camps can negligently provide children with foods to which they are allergic even after being warned of the child’s allergy.
While there are many types of allergies, the most common allergens are:
- Tree Nuts (Almonds, Cashews, Walnuts, etc. – including nut butters and oils)
- Peanuts (including butters and oils)
- Soybeans and soy products
Some of the more common reactions to allergic or anaphylactic injury are:
- Swelling of the Lips, Tongue and Throat
- Difficulty Breathing
- Dizziness or Loss of Consciousness
The significant treatment and intervention for significant allergic or anaphylactic injury can require people to miss time from work and lose out on significant income. These losses can be claimed back from the person or business that caused your negligent allergic or anaphylactic injury.
If you told a restaurant, school, daycare or other about your allergy or that of your child, and they negligently cause an allergic or anaphylactic reaction, they will be responsible for an injury or loss resulting.
