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.

What is a Contingency Fee?

If you are looking for an attorney to help you after an accident, you should know that there is a distinct difference between personal injury attorneys and other types of lawyers. Personal injury attorneys don’t charge you a dime for anything until after your case is settled. If you have met an attorney who charges you for a consultation or asks you to pay a “signing fee” to handle your case, run the other way!

Personal injury law is one legal specialty that works on a contingency fee, which is simply a fancy way of saying, “free until we win.” You should pay nothing to your personal injury attorney until he or she secures a settlement for you from your case. At that point, your attorney will recoup some costs and receive an agreed-upon percentage of your settlement.

And by the way, it’s free to call me up to discuss your case. I would enjoy the opportunity to hear what you’re facing and to offer my help.

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.
