Thanks John for answering my question so quickly. I have no way of proving that I didn't place the roach there but my daughter had just finished sipping out of it when she found the roach. I would not have let her drink out of the cup if I had put the roach in it. What I need to know is, do I contact a personal injury lawyer? If not what type of lawyer would I use? And what other steps would I have to take?
I'm sure you were horrified to find a cockroach in your daughter's drink. However, it's a hard thing to sue for. You will need to prove that you were injured/harmed. If you want to take legal action, you should be able to consult with a personal injury attorney for free.
