Marler Clark Files Lawsuit Against Fayetteville Holiday Inn Over Salmonella Outbreak

Fayetteville, NC (PRWEB) May 29, 2013

Marler Clark, the nation’s leading law firm representing victims of foodborne illness outbreaks, and Fayetteville lawyer Steven Lawrence filed two lawsuits Tuesday against the Holiday Inn Bordeaux. The lawsuits were filed in Cumberland County Superior Court (case numbers 13 CVS 4175 and 13 CVS 4176) on behalf of two Fayetteville women who allege that they became ill with Salmonella infections after eating food purchased from the Holiday Inn.

According to the complaints, Lucille Thompson and Tara Foster were two of nearly 90 people who fell ill with Salmonella infections (See WRAL-TV, May 28, 2013) during an outbreak the Cumberland County Department of Public Health traced to the Holiday Inn on May 17. Court documents state that the plaintiffs purchased and consumed food at Café Bordeaux in the Holiday Inn on May 8 or 9 and fell ill with symptoms of Salmonella infection, including agonizing abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea in the days following their meals. Ms. Thompson alleges that she sought medical treatment for her illness on May 12 and received a prescription for antibiotics as well as intravenous rehydration therapy. Ms. Foster alleges that she sought medical treatment on May 13, and was admitted to Mission hospital for 4 days. Both plaintiffs claim in the lawsuits that they have not fully recovered from their illnesses.

“Salmonella causes more than just a tummy ache, as my clients and at least 84 other people learned the hard way,” said Bill Marler, attorney for the plaintiffs.

Marler’s firm has worked with local North Carolina lawyers to represent North Carolina residents in outbreaks traced to ground beef, fairs and petting zoos, cookie dough, butter, ground turkey, peanut butter, pot pies, barbeque, tempeh, turkey, eggs and food served at restaurants. These include lawsuits filed in North Carolina on behalf of victims of the following E. coli, Salmonella or hepatitis A outbreaks:
