Q:
I had severe diarrhea, and was vomiting after eating some food that I suspect was tainted. Is that enough for me to bring - and win - a food poisoning lawsuit?

A:
The short answer to this question is, unfortunately, no. In order to prevail in a defective food products case, you will need to prove not only that the food you ate was defective, but that the food - as opposed to either an unrelated viral condition or some idiosyncratic reaction - caused your personal injuries.
