Salmonella Attorney: Numbers Should Rise

WJAC-TV

An attorney representing some of the victims of the Salmonella outbreak says the number of people who got sick will go up. Bill Marler is representing some of the victims who plan to sue. He's the same attorney who represented people who came down with Hepatitis-A from a Chi-Chi's restaurant near Pittsburgh. Marler says "it would be my estimate that you probably have somewhere between 300 and 400 actually ill people out there. Whether all of them get cultured and whether all of them come forward is another story. I do anticipate given the breadth of where this product was shipped, I do believe you'll see that number rise." Marler says the amount awarded to the victims depends on how sick they were. But in similar cases in the past, people have gotten up to 100-thousand dollars.
