Vibrio Vulnificus, Food Poisoning Lawyer in Denver
Vibrio vulnificus is a bacterium that occurs naturally in sea waters and can occur in high numbers in filter-feeding shellfish (oysters, clams, and mussels). The organism is able to cause infection in people through ingestion (typically through eating raw oysters) and it most often leads to limb amputation or even death. In other words, it’s an extremely dangerous food poisoning.

— Vibrio Vulnificus Investigation —
Scott and his team can immediately begin the process of investigating your Vibrio vulnificus case by contacting the local health department and collecting all the relevant information, including where the oysters were harvested, where the oysters were sold, and how the oysters were handled at the restaurant or place of purchase.
Why is Vibrio vulnificus so dangerous?
The chances of becoming infected by Vibrio Vulnificus from eating raw oysters depends on the number of oysters consumed, the concentration of the bacteria in those oysters, the virulence of the strain, and the condition or strength of the person’s immune system. However, once the bacteria get into a person’s bloodstream and septicemia develops, the mortality rate is between 50% to 70%. Individuals who survive the bacterial infection may lose one or more of their limbs and have severe scarring on their bodies.
