E. coli signs and symptoms

Posted on June 1, 2015 2:19 pm under Premises Liability

Most E. coli, or Escherichia coli bacteria, are harmless enough to live along an individual’s small and large intestines. However, some strains of E. coli are so harmful that they can make you feel sick. Most people get sick from E. coli bacteria after drinking contaminated water or after eating foods prepared in an unsanitary way.

Three days after exposure from E. coli, a person may experience symptoms, such as diarrhea, abdominal cramp, nausea, and vomiting. E. coli infection is considered a medical emergency if diarrhea is causing you to be dehydrated, or if you are losing too much blood.

Unfortunately, some cases of E. coli infection have been associated with poor and unsanitary food service. If you have been harmed after eating an unsanitary food item from a restaurant in Wisconsin, a lawyer at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® might be able to help you file a case against the party responsible.
