How Do I Know If I Have an E. coli Infection from an Outbreak?

Only a doctor can make a diagnosis of an E. coli infection. If you believe you have drank water or eaten contaminated food and have become sick, urgent medical attention is highly recommended. Also, early medical treatment can greatly reduce the risk for long-term complications. It is best not to panic, but it is a good idea to monitor your health and symptoms in the days after exposure.

E. coli, more specifically Shiga Toxin-Producing E. coli, are among the most dangerous of the food poisoning pathogens. Some types of E. coli can cause bloody diarrhea and severe food poisoning, while other types of E. coli can cause urinary tract infections, respiratory illness, pneumonia, and other illnesses.

Contact with pathogenic E. coli (the type that make humans sick, like E. coli O157, O26, and other STEC E. coli) can result in infection and serious illness. The most severe E. coli infections are life-threatening and may require hospitalization. Those who are very young, elderly, or have compromised immune systems are at the high risk for severe infection.

Urgent medical attention is recommended for E. coli infections, as they could led to long-term complications, including Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). About 5-10% of those with STEC E. coli infections can develop HUS, which is a type of kidney failure that could have long-term consequences and can even lead to death.

"Candess & Jory were extremely valuable resources for me when I contracted food poisoning. They guided me through every step of the legal process from start to finish, always willing to answer questions and be fully transparent. They were able to secure a settlement for me, but what I valued more was how truly concerned they were about my health and well-being beyond my case. I would gladly recommend Candess & Jory to anyone looking for attorneys who will fight on their behalf and really care about their clients."


"I cannot recommend Jory Lange highly enough. When my father died, Jory was there and got an unbelievably great settlement (one of the highest settlements in America for for this type of case). I say this not only as a grateful client, but as a trial lawyer myself concentrating in personal injury with over 25 years experience. Jory has the knowledge, the skills, and the ability to handle big personal injury cases and my family and I are exceedingly pleased with the results and the justice that he obtained through very hard work for us. "
