3 year old E Coli Infection Lake Wildwood Beach 7-31-2017

July 31, 2017

Our law firm is currently investigating the possibility of personal injury lawsuits against the responsible parties for an incident that’s happened in connection with a lake in Northern California.

A 3-year-old boy has been hospitalized and is listed in unstable condition in the ICU following a swim in Lake Wildwood beach in Nevada County.  The boy is suffering from E. coli complications, his family says; the bacteria has begun affecting the boy’s kidneys, and doctors at UC Davis are doing all they can to get it under control.

The boy was said to have had an upset stomach with trouble digesting his food; he had blood in his stool as well. Initially, he was taken to Sierra Nevada on Tuesday, but upon learning of the condition, he was transported to UC Davis.

The boy’s mother took him to the beach last week, and five other children have been reported sick, with three of them testing positive for E. coli. The blame is being placed on the water at the beach, which was tested in the wake of the reports.

The water, Nevada County officials say, had high levels of fecal coliforms. Near the lake, there are wastewater treatment plants, but according to county public works, there were no issues with any pipes and no spills.

Sara Dunn, aunt of the hospitalized boy, said that the mother, who is also pregnant, is being treated for sickness as well. Dunn would like there to be caution signs that advise against swimming and alert residents and visitors to the potential dangers of bacteria in the lake.

Personal Injury Lawsuit

If you or one of your family members falls ill after swimming in a county-owned property such as a lake or pool, you may be entitled to compensation for your bodily damages and medical costs. It is the responsibility of the county to properly sanitize the water and surroundings. The health of the visitors should be of paramount importance. Any ensuing sicknesses that occur from their negligence should have the ensuing medical costs covered under a personal injury claim.
