Legionnaires' Disease is not spread from one person to another. Instead, they are spread primarily by water, but can colonize in any warm, damp environment. For example, if two or more people are diagnosed with legionnaires' disease and stayed at the same hotel, there is a high probability health officials will investigate to determine whether or not there's an outbreak.

If you are having lung, heart, kidney or other organ problems, you should immediately contact a physician. If you are unaware how this disease came about and would like to be compensated for your pain and suffering, contact the Columbus, Ohio Legionnaire Disease Lawyers at The Donahey Law Firm.
