If you are truly interested in getting the most compensation for your injury and the inconveniences that accompany having to deal with fixing your tooth, you should consult a personal injury attorney. You may have a case against the maker of the pasty. The type of case would depend on who made the pastry. Was it “homemade” at a restaurant? Was it a mass produced and packaged pastry? More information is needed to give a more specific answer.
I am sorry to hear about your situation. The short answer to your question is: Yes, you likely have a case against the driver of the 18-wheeler and his or her company. However, more information is needed to properly evaluate your specific situation.
Cases involving accidents with commercial vehicles (an 18-wheeler is considered a commercial vehicle) are usually more complicated than accidents involving two people in their personal vehicles. The trucking company and its drivers must follow...
I am sorry to hear about your car accident and the lingering physical issues you describe above. I am even more sorry to hear that you are unable to obtain representation to help recover the damages to which you may be entitled.
Most personal injury attorneys accept cases on a contingent fee basis. Visit www.vbattorneys.com for information on fee types and what to expect after an injury.

I am sorry to hear about your situation. If you were hurt and are continuing to treat you shouldn't rush to settle with the other driver's insurance company. If you were riding with the "at-fault" driver, you may be able to recover from his insurance.
There are times when people don't need to hire an attorney, but this may not be one of those times. (http://www.vbattorneys.com/library/the-3-times-you-shouldn-t--hire-a-personal-injury-attorney-following-your-auto-accident.cfm)
Your question should be, "Could I SUCCESSFULLY sue the MTA?" See, like a previous answer stated, you can pretty sue anyone. But can you successfully sue anyone? No.
Quick thing for the future. This is a very general explanation of how lawsuits work. Each lawsuit is broken into two separate parts (not actually, but go with me). First, you have the liability portion---What did the other person do wrong to cause your current situation? In your question, we don't know if anyone did...
Your best option is to contact a criminal defense attorney in your area. A criminal defense attorney would be able to go over the charges that you were issued, get your side of the story and then review the way the charges were pled to the court. If something is pled wrong or if one of the elements of the charge is missing evidence, a criminal defense would be able to point that out to you quickly and you could go from there.
You MAY have a case against McDonalds. You should file a report with McDondalds, and inform them of your need to see a chiropractor. If you feel better after that initial doctor/chiropractor visit, there may not be damages worth pursuing.
With every lawsuit (very general information coming) there are two sides to the injured person's (called the plaintiff/you) case--a liability side and damages side. We must show that McDonalds did something wrong on the liability side. There shouldn't...
As many of the attorneys have stated, it is tough to say what "you should expect" with regard to your settlement value without an exhaustive look at all the facts and information involved in your specific situation. However, I wouldn't expect anything reasonable from an insurance company when dealing with them without an attorney. At least, not with its first few offers.
I would contact a personal injury attorney in your area or, at least, go here for more information before accepting a...
First, I am sorry to hear about your situation. As if being in the accident wasn't bad enough, now you have to fight it out with the insurance adjusters. There are certain scenarios when you probably wouldn't need to hire an attorney.
But, your current situations is probably not one of those times. The insurance company is likely to give you the runaround...
I am sorry to hear that you have to deal with a wrongful death issue at all.
