Nevada Laws Applicable in E. Coli Cases

In Nevada, E. Coli claims fall under product liability. According to NV Rev Stat § 695E.090:

“Product liability” means liability for damages because of any personal injury, death, emotional harm, consequential economic damage or damage to property, including damages resulting from the loss of use of property, arising out of the manufacture, design, importation, distribution, packaging, labeling, lease or sale of a product…”

In other words, manufacturers or sellers of food products contaminated with E. Coli can be held responsible for the resulting damages.

Strict Liability

Most E. Coli claims are bought on the grounds of strict liability, which means a manufacturer or seller can be liable regardless of whether they were negligent. To establish a claim of strict product liability in Nevada, several elements must be met:

  • The product was defective.
  • The defect was present when the product left the defendant’s possession.
  • The product was used in a reasonably foreseeable manner.
  • The defect directly caused your damages or injury.

You do not need to demonstrate that the manufacturer or seller acted negligently in producing or distributing the product. Instead, you must simply show that the product was defective and that this defect led to your injury or damages.


Claiming that the food provider or manufacturer acted negligently by failing to uphold their duty of care to provide safe food products, such as through improper food handling, storage, or preparation.

Breach of Warranty

Alleging that the food product did not meet the express or implied warranties, such as the implied warranty of merchantability, by causing illness or injury when consumed.

Statute of Limitations

In Nevada, the statute of limitations for product liability claims is typically four years under NRS § 11.190:

“2. Within 4 years:

(a) An action on an open account for goods, wares and merchandise sold and delivered.”

This means that individuals who have suffered harm due to a product contaminated with E. Coli generally have four years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit against the responsible party.

Loss of Consortium
