Your Legionnaires’ Disease Case
Legionnaires’ disease is a severe form of pneumonia caused by bacteria, which is usually breathed in through mist from water. The mist can come from sources like:
- Hot tubs
- Air-conditioning units (i.e., cooling towers)
Since this disease is caused by water contamination, you might have a legal case when it comes to your Legionnaires’ disease diagnosis.
Upon initial consultation, our team at Morris | Haynes will ask a number of questions to better understand your Legionnaires’ disease case, such as:
- Do you have a positive test for Legionnaires’ disease?
- Did they perform a urinalysis?
- Were you hospitalized?
- Where were you when you started feeling sick? Where were you during a 10-day period prior to feeling sick?
- Helps pinpoint source
- Did you experience flu-like symptoms?
If after further review of these frequently asked questions the Morris Haynes team decides that you have a legal case, we will move forward with filing a Complaint, starting the legal proceedings, and working to get you the compensation you deserve.
