Seattle attorneys file second hepatitis A class action lawsuit: Quizno’s suedJuly 9, 2004
BOSTON – Marler Clark, the Seattle food safety attorneys, filed a class action lawsuit against Quizno’s Friday on behalf of all individuals who received Immune globulin (Ig) injections after being exposed to the hepatitis A virus at the Quizno’s Subshop located at 74 Summer Street in Boston. The lawsuit, the second class action lawsuit the firm has filed in two weeks on behalf of individuals who received Ig shots, was filed in Suffolk County Superior Court.
Like the previous lawsuit, this class action asks for compensation for people who were forced to receive inoculations to prevent hepatitis A infection. The lawsuit seeks compensation for lost wages, harm, and emotional distress.
“Friendly’s took action and did the right thing by reimbursing the health department for costs of administering Ig shots to those individuals exposed to the virus,” said William Marler, attorney for the plaintiffs. “In past outbreak cases, we have represented health departments who were trying to recover costs for making shots available to consumers.”
