Outbreak Info

An investigation conducted by the Tennessee Department of Health has found E. coli bacteria was the cause of sicknesses that affected at least 550 people at a Gatlinburg area zipline attraction. Nearly 550 people have reported illness after visiting the CLIMB Works Zip Line Canopy Tour in Gatlinburg. The Health Department stated to the media that respondents are located in multiple states and visited CLIMB Works between mid-June and early July.

The Tennessee Department of Health used CLIMB Works online sales records to email 2,901 surveys asking patrons of the business if they became ill after visiting the attraction.

Nearly 808 people have responded to theTennessee Department of Health’s survey, and of these, 548 reported illness.

Online reviews of the business indicate many ill patrons booked and visited CLIMB Works in groups, so illness counts are expected to rise.

The Health Department urges those who believe they have become ill to get stool testing.

"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. "
