Newland & Newland, LLP Helps Clients Seek Compensation for Viral, Bacterial, and Toxic Illness

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is currently at the forefront of the news, and the World Health Organization (WHO) recently declared the outbreak a global pandemic. Tens of thousands of people throughout the world have been infected with the virus, which was first detected in Wuhan, China in December 2019. The number of coronavirus cases in the United States has steadily increased, prompting President Trump to suspend air travel from Europe to the U.S. for 30 days.

As the coronavirus continues to spread, many people may be wondering about their legal options if they contract this virus or if a family member dies as a result of complications related to COVID-19. Victims should work with a personal injury attorney to determine whether they can pursue compensation from negligent parties who may be responsible for the spread of COVID-19 or other infectious diseases. The accomplished law firm of Newland & Newland has successfully litigated personal injury and medical negligence claims related to disease transmission for more than 20 years.

Attorney Gary Newland has represented numerous clients and obtained millions of dollars in compensation for injuries in a wide variety of disease-related cases, including those involving norovirus outbreaks, Guillain-Bar syndrome transmitted through vaccines, sexually transmitted diseases, carbon monoxide, lead poisoning, Legionnaires’ disease, and food poisoning from salmonella, E. coli, listeria, and other toxins. He has successfully pursued a wide variety of claims against restaurants for food poisoning, as well as product liability cases against food manufacturers in which infections led to illness or wrongful death.

Mr. Newland’s extensive experience litigating infection-related cases has helped forge new paths in the scientific and legal fields. Some of his representative victories include recovering compensation for a woman with multiple sclerosis (MS) whose condition was aggravated due to a norovirus infection contracted at a restaurant and demonstrating that a listeria infection transmitted from a mother to an unborn child was the cause of premature birth and other medical complications.

In addition to pursuing claims related to food poisoning, product liability, and premises liability, Newland & Newland, LLP has assisted clients in securing compensation under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act for injuries related to industrial disease and contamination. In these cases, employers may be held liable if an illness was caused by workplace conditions.

In addition to providing representation for clients in personal injury cases, Attorney Newland is active in the legal community. He is the incoming president of the Northwest Suburban Bar Association (NWSBA), and he will assume this role in June 2020. The NWSBA is dedicated to improving the community by inspiring excellence in the practice of law.
