Raising Awareness for Food Allergies and Anaphylaxis


On Saturday, November 2nd, Shook & Stone participated in FARE Walk Las Vegas, a walk to raise awareness and funds for people with food allergies and anaphylaxis. This walk was just one more way for the attorneys at Shook & Stone to show their support for people in the local community and to do their part to raise awareness.

Food allergies can range from moderate to severe, and if businesses, manufacturers and others are not sensitive to these allergies, they could put these people in harm’s way. Shook & Stone is proud not only to raise awareness for people living with food allergies and anaphylaxis, but to represent them in food allergy-related lawsuits.

Recently, an Oregon woman filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a jail after her son died as a result of a severe allergic reaction to dairy. The woman’s son was in jail on a minor marijuana possession charge. According to the woman’s claim, she alleges that the jail knew about her son’s allergy yet fed him oatmeal with dairy in it, which caused him to suffer an acute asthma attack and die.

These are the types of cases we want to call attention to. While tragic, they serve as a reminder of how important it is to always take the necessary precautions. Since 1997, Shook & Stone has advocate for victims of negligence and their families. If you’re looking for justice after suffering an injury, contact a Las Vegas personal injury attorney at our law firm today to discuss.
