NOVEMBER 12, 2003
PITTSBURGH—Marler Clark and Meyers, Rosen, Louik & Perry filed two more lawsuits against Chi Chi’s on behalf of hepatitis victims today in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County. The lawsuits were filed on behalf of Laura Cameron and Brian Prichinello, who ate at the Beaver Valley Mall Chi Chi’s together on October 19.
The lawsuit seeks damages related to Laura and Brian’s hepatitis-A infections, including medical and medical-related expenses, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. Attorneys also ask that the court compensate Laura and Brian for lost wages and other damages that occurred as a direct result of their illnesses.
“We are filing these lawsuits because Chi Chi’s has not yet taken responsibility for the outbreak and offered to compensate victims,” said William Marler of Marler Clark, the Seattle law firm nationally recognized for its successful representation of foodborne illness victims. “Hepatitis-A infections are not pretty. Our clients suffered a great deal.”
