SAN DIEGO, Oct. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The national food safety law firm of Ron Simon & Associates and the Gomez Trial Attorneys have filed a second lawsuit in the E. Coli Outbreak linked to Miguel's Cocina, owned and operated by Brigantine Inc., as additional victims are identified. This second lawsuit was filed on behalf of Denis Bisson, a San Diego resident who became ill after eating at Miguel's Cocina and (like Mrs. Dowd) was also hospitalized.
According to Ron Simon, "the nature of this outbreak is disturbing. While some of our clients ate chips and guacamole, others, like Mr. Bisson, developed E. coli after eating mushroom, chicken, and shrimp fajitas. In addition, the victims ate there over the course of 12 days, and that means there was a serious, endemic problem for a prolonged period of time. The victims were being exposed to a serious pathogen for a much longer period of time than in most restaurant-based outbreaks."
At present at least 17 victims have been identified, but that number may grow as additional patrons step forward to have a stool culture performed.
Mr. Simon is meeting with the families of victims in San Diego this weekend.
Mr. Simon and his law firm have established an E. coli Claim Center to assist victims in the outbreak. The E. coli Claim Center can be reached toll-free at 1-888-335-4901, or at either https://www.ronsimonassociates.com/ or https://miguelscocinalawsuit.com.
