I know someone secondhand who choked on something from grocery store bought product with foreign object. I forget the gory details, but person is done fine now, but has a sports car over 35K for his troubles. I can try to get lawyer’s number.July 2, 2013 at 11:09 PM #763323masayakoParticipant

Can you prove you were infected by the food at that specific restaurant? In other words, did a government health dept. find evidence of the causative agent in the food at that restaurant? If not you are unlikely to have a case. People get sick all the time – and often it is impossible to know how the disease was transmitted.July 3, 2013 at 8:48 AM #763330equalizerParticipant

I have no advice for you, but can you name the restaurant so others can avoid any illness?

is this a repeated occurrence? I was under the impression that food place get a pass for a single occurrence.July 3, 2013 at 4:40 PM #763338AnonymousGuest
If a restaurant made you sick before, you’d have to be a dumbass to go back..July 5, 2013 at 5:52 AM #763346jstoeszParticipant
I think I got a sliver on a restaurant patio once. Maybe it is the same place, and we can file a class action!July 8, 2013 at 2:52 PM #763382JazzmanParticipant
Ah yes, litigation. Failed in life, but there’s always the legal lottery. I have absolutely no sympathy for this kind of attitude. It is immoral and loathesome. If you got ill, don’t seek to profit from it. Recover, and learn your lesson. A litigious climate succors only the scourge of humanity. Wait until it happens to you and then you’ll understand.July 8, 2013 at 6:21 PM #763392spdrunParticipant
Unless this was O157-H7 E. Coli, an amoeba that took months to cure, or something similarly nasty, I’d just chalk it up to experience and give a really shitty review on Yelp.December 12, 2014 at 3:02 PM #781030FlyerInHiGuest
This is a funny story about a Harvard Business School lawyer who wants to recover $4 from a Chinese restaurant.
Technically the lawyer is right.

I read that technically, he’s wrong, as the 3x judgement rule only applies to judgements above $25 in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.December 12, 2014 at 7:44 PM #781034FlyerInHiGuest
The funny thing is that the lawyer has a thing for Asian food. But he wants a deal. He threatened a sushi restaurant before over 3 groupons.
I would feel embarrassed using a coupon or groupon at a mom and pop place, especially on the prix fixe menu, because they don’t make money on that meal but want to generate new regular patrons.
Plus I don’t think it’s a good idea to threaten people who handle your food.December 12, 2014 at 10:11 PM #781035svelteParticipant
